The RAC has partnered with Belfast-based vehicle management company DFC to provide breakdown recovery, accident management and telematics on all contract hire vehicles.

The RAC telematics software allows vehicles to be tracked remotely. The service also contains mileage records which can be used to assist with mileage expenses claims.

DFC claimed the partnership would drive down costs and provide an insight into how its fleet fleets is functioning.

Recently, the RAC appointed David Wallace as its new business services director as part of the organisation’s plans to develop its B2B arm.

He joined the RAC from Epyx where he spent three years as its sales and business development director. Prior to that, he was at the AA for 12 years, where he led the business services sales team.

“What attracted me to this role is the great energy, creativity and product innovation that I see at the RAC, and the opportunity to make my own contribution to the already excellent service provided to its customers,” said Wallace. “The RAC is in a good position right now, on a clear journey, with a clear direction, and feels like an exciting place to be.
