We are delighted to announce that Genie Insights has been appointed by Freeway Fleet Systems as its exclusive sales and implementation partner for the Island of Ireland. Freeway, which provides asset management and compliance software designed specifically for the transport industry, has expanded globally and has a strong customer base within the UK and a rapidly growing presence in Ireland.
Matt met Patrick Tandy, Managing Director at Freeway Fleet Systems, a year ago when working on a long-term project with Agro Merchants Lurgan Transport Ltd (previously Sawyers Transport).
Patrick Tandy explained: “We initially developed a close working relationship with Genie Insights having met Matt through a mutual customer. Matt provided a combination of project management, fleet management and people skills to the implementation of our Freeway Fleet Management solution. The result was a rapid increase in the use of our software solution and significant benefits for our customer in both cost savings and compliance management. Building on this success by appointing Genie Insights as our official sales and implementation partner for the Island of Ireland was the obvious next step”.
Matt has 15 years’ experience within the Transport & Logistics industry, including time spent with a leading truck manufacturer in the UK, as well as having fleet and workshop management experience for a transport company with a fleet of 650 trailers. For Freeway, this experience combined with Matt’s in-depth understanding of the Freeway system made him an obvious choice to head up this partnership for the Irish market.
Genie Insights’ implementation now provides the link between Freeway’s development team and Freeway customers. This valuable step in the set-up process includes helping to identify how the system will best suit each individual operation, right through set up and ‘go live’. This includes an initial departmental audit to assess user modules required, customisation and system set up, as well as mentoring and training staff in the use of the system. We also provide technical troubleshooting in conjunction with Freeway’s software developers and are on-site for the system launch to ensure a seamless and stress-free integration.
Matt added: “In the few months that I have been involved with Freeway, we have already seen a notable uptake in the system with the benefits of this new approach to implementation being an attraction for local fleet operators. We are currently supporting existing Irish users and are in the early stages of implementation for one of the largest fleets in Northern Ireland, amongst others”.
