Happy Friday and welcome to our response to the 9th topic in the 10 dumbest mistakes fleet managers can make.
9. Ignoring Salespeople
The Problem- Fleet managers tend to avoid or shrug off meetings with salespeople, which carries the risk of being uninformed about options. Upper management doesn’t look kindly on a manager who doesn’t care about potential partners.
The Solution- With all the time you’ll save with a fleet card, you’ll have enough time to talk to all the salespeople you want. And probably still have enough time left to take a nice long lunch. Also, salespeople will usually leave you a nice pen.
