Paul Parkinson, CEO and founder of Synergy Car commented;

“Xledger are a great example of an innovative tech business who don’t just talk about their social responsibilities, but who implement practical steps to reduce their impact on the environment. The introduction of EVs to their corporate vehicle fleet is just one example of their commitment.  We have partnered with DRIVE in providing ODO to our customers, like Xledger, to ensure that we are able to effectively, and efficiently, manage their transition to a greener fleet. ODO gives us visibility and automation to ensure that our customer’s fleet is compliant, cost-efficient and green.”

Robert Gorby, Chief Commercial Officer at DRIVE, added;

“In the current environment, adapting to new locations, ways of working there and doing it all in a way which reduces our impact on the planet could become the abiding theme of the new decade. Which vehicles and for what purpose are likely to be key questions. ODO provides answers, enabling both parties to understand the demands of the new world and, therefore, manage it more effectively.”
