New Fleet Tyre Offering from Allstar ServicePoint

A new tyre offering for fleets has been created for the Allstar ServicePoint online service, maintenance and repair (SMR) portal through a new partnership with Colewood Automotive.

The new offering enables Allstar ServicePoint users to have the added convenience and control of purchasing a wide choice of tyre brands through the online portal for their fleet, and booking a fitting at more than 1,500 fitters, including fitting centres and mobile fitters, across the country. If required, the tyres can be delivered.

The easy to use portal enables users to filter and search tyres by brand, speed rating, standard EU tyre label gradings, summer and winter options, and more. As well as showing them the price breakdown for the tyres before purchase, and providing deals and promotions from tyre manufacturers.

Colewood Automotive build and operate a number of tyre retail websites in the UK, partnering with some well-known major brands. Their online network helps raise awareness to customers of independent tyre fitters and garages in their area.

Paul Holland, managing director of UK Fuel at Fleetcor, said: “When you look at many vehicle profiles, tyres can be the single most expensive item of SMR expenditure, so helping fleets to minimise costs in this area is crucial.

“The new partnership with Colewood Automotive helps us to do this, adding the buying power of the Allstar ServicePoint user base to their existing tyre e-commerce partners in order to access highly competitive pricing and high service standards.

“Overall, the new tyre offering builds on the strengths of the platform that we have developed since its launch four years ago. We give fleets the means to buy SMR online easily at a wide range of suppliers at competitive prices, using technology that helps them manage their requirements proactively.”

ServicePoint is provided by Allstar Business Solutions based on technology from epyx.

It is an online portal designed for businesses that maintain company cars and vans but either lack the resources required to proactively manage their SMR or want to take more effective control over the processes involved.
