Multileasing required bespoke software development services and ongoing support from an experienced IT provider for FleetStreem, their web based account management platform. The software development would allow the application to be modified to suit their evolving requirements.

They have over 20 years combined experience in the Fleet Management industry and a wealth of knowledge and expertise within their team. Multileasing provide a full suite of Fleet Management services and provide tailored packages to meet diverse customer requirements, which go beyond pure supply and quotation.

Multileasing utilise a web based fleet management solution called FleetStreem that was developed by a third party. The software provides ‘Live’ account management tools for their organisation. FleetStreem offers key account management functionality for Multileasing, including compliance and duty of care on vehicles and drivers regardless of whether the asset is leased on contract hire, company owned or grey fleet and allows their account managers to run unique documented account reports.

Multileasing had identified a requirement to develop and adapt the FleetStreem application to meet their evolving requirements and wished to work with an experienced software development partner who would provide a strategic long term relationship.

Nexus were selected to supply bespoke software application development, database development and ongoing software support and maintenance for Multileasing’s FleetStreem software.

A number of Nexus software developers and consultants were assigned to develop the Fleetstream software and liaised directly with the client to identify the issues that were ultimately affecting the user experience. The software development team worked to fix the code base, suggesting improvements and simple fixes where possible to allow Multileasing to stabilise the current feature set and bring the application online with it’s new set of features and functionality.

  • Fixed software bugs in the code base

  • Design and development of a full set of new features and functionality

The software development team at Nexus have continued to work with Multileasing, helping them to focus their software to meet the exact needs of their users by exploring new ideas and working in an agile way to produce low cost solutions to immediate problems in a short time frame.
