“Keeping track and understanding innovation is difficult and time consuming; but understanding how it will help your business is critical.” Marcus Puddy – Managing Director



‘Innovation’ in Management Information

Claude Elwood Shannon (April 30, 1916 – February 24, 2001) was an American mathematician, electrical engineer, and cryptographer and was known as "the father of information theory". He stated;

“Information is the resolution of uncertainty.”

The complexities of managing a fleet are numerous so the more accurate information we have at our finger tips, the more informed our decisions will be. Informed decisions lead to a more efficient business which, in turn, leads to maximised profit.


The PVS Group – helping fleets to make the right decisions in an ever-changing world.

European freight transportation is responsible for 20% of all EU transport. In accordance with the ‘Paris Agreement’, the EU has established legislation that targets of cutting emissions by 30% (against the 2005 emissions output) will be achieved by 2030. The emission targets for all sectors (Transport currently resides outside of the ‘Emission Trading System’ (ETS)) by 2050 should be 80% - 95% of the 1995. To achieve this, the transport sector, over time, must migrate to ‘zero emission vehicles’.

What does all this mean?

In short, it means that all EU organisations operating commercial vehicles need to start creating a ‘programme of change’ such that the emissions targets can be reached whilst at the same time minimising disruption to service and, more importantly, company profit.

To achieve this seamless transition, it will require a thorough understanding of:

  • New legislation and regulation

  • New vehicle technology and its appropriateness for your business

  • The long-term political aspirations affecting transport

Innovation is the division within the PVS group that diligently tracks the above in order to offer tailored support to companies wanting to keep one-step ahead of this transport evolution.

The Innovation team is constantly feeding relevant ‘transport change’ and innovation through to the PVS fleet advisory team within the PVS Fleet division. This means that when you engage with the PVS Fleet team, you can be sure that you are receiving advice that ‘future proofs’ your business against legislative change and that the vehicles are appropriate and in line with EU legislation.

If you have concerns over whether you or your business has the necessary resource to make the right choices in these changing times, then speak with PVS Group. 



The PVS Fleet Management Interface

Innovation can take many forms. Real time fleet management information is an innovative way of maximising the efficiencies within your fleet.

PVS has developed a ‘Fleet Management Interface’ that allows specific users the ability to access and analyse fleet data (vehicle groups to individual vehicles) in order to identify anomalies in vehicle operating costs and forecast residual value.

PVS just need the ‘Vehicle Registration Mark’ of your fleet vehicles together with the mileage data. PVS will then create your Management Information Account where you can login and view your data. The data is presented in simple terms and is easy to understand via our unique ‘dashboard’ presentation.

You can choose the level of PVS support you require to manage your fleet optimally.
