Frequently Asked Questions
What types of companies does IFM work with?
We work with companies of all sizes and with fleets ranging from three trucks to more than 1,000. We serve clients nationwide and have staff in Maryland, Massachusetts, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, and California.
What will a review cost our company?
IFM’s comprehensive fleet report and cost savings recommendations are provided at no upfront cost to you. We earn a percentage of the final savings. If we don’t find anything, we don’t invoice you.
Will we have to change our vendor(s)?
Our preference is to work with your current vendor with a fact-based methodology to establish potential savings opportunities. Our vendor interaction is a fair and reasonable approach with client support resulting in a stronger relationship between both parties and no loss to the services you currently enjoy.
If I am midpoint in an agreement with a vendor, what is the impetus for them to make changes to our agreement?
It is expensive for your fleet vendors to replace lost business. Most vendor’s sales and operation staff are evaluated and compensated on business retention. Vendor preference is to make IFM’s reasonable requested changes rather than lose business during the next round of vehicle replacements or additions.
How much time will this initiative require of my staff?
Your time allocation for our engagement will be minimal. We request a few months of invoices and vendor agreements and an initial introductory meeting with your participation. Beyond that, we take the lead negotiating the enhancements uncovered through our analysis.
