runyourfleet’s innovation recognised by Kings Award for Enterprise

Multifleet Vehicle Management, which trades as runyourfleet, has been recognised for innovation by the prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise, marking the successful development of its online platform.

The success comes after the launch of runyourfleet’s platform in 2021, which has resulted in company profits growing by more than 100% in each of the last three years.

runyourfleet, based in Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire, now has a customer base of over 1,200 businesses across the UK, providing fleet management services for more than 32,000 vehicles.

Its customers range from accountancy firms to NHS ambulance services, and it provides everything from vans, company cars and rental services to salary sacrifice schemes.

Steve Whitmarsh, chief executive of runyourfleet, explained that company revenues had grown to £19 million in its last financial year, with staff numbers rising by 30% to 37 since 2022.

Mr Whitmarsh said: “We are honoured to receive the prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise for innovation in recognition of all the hard work our team has put in to developing this platform.

“The flexible architecture used to build the platform is where the true innovation rests, enabling us to develop and launch new modules and services at short notice in response to changing market and customer needs.”

He said one example of runyourfleet’s flexibility was a customer who wanted all its 5,000 staff to use the platform to book a range of hire vehicles from cars to specialist HGVs.

Mr Whitmarsh said: “They had been asking this question of fleet management companies for many years with no results, but we adapted our platform to meet their needs within six weeks.

“The runyourfleet platform is now continuing to drive our significant growth across the UK.”

Mr Whitmarsh is a co-founder and part-owner of Multifleet Vehicle Management, which was launched in 2011. Chief finance officer Simon Shiner is also a co-founder and part-owner, along with investment from Forward Group plc.

runyourfleet was one of 252 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise, and just one of 59 businesses to be recognised for innovation.
