Fleet Management Company Australian Vehicle Consultants (AVC) joins the Smartsalary Family!

Smartsalary’s sister company, Smartfleet Management Pty Limited, has completed the purchase of 100% of the share capital of Australian Vehicle Consultants Pty Ltd (“AVC”).

Founded in 1999, AVC is a full service fleet management company and also the leading provider of vehicle maintenance authorisation services to the salary packaging industry with over 20,000 vehicles under management. Indeed, Smartsalary has been a customer of AVC’s since 2007.

Smartfleet has now completed its 2nd acquisition – last year it acquired the assets of Webfleet.  Both AVC and Webfleet have unique strengths and the merged entity will be well positioned to provide superior fleet management service to its valued customers.

Mark Telfer from AVC commented: “The merger makes  sense on a number of fronts. Both sets of clients will benefit from the wider product offerings Smartfleet can offer.  Including Webfleet, we now have over 35,000 vehicles under management and joining forces will allow us to develop market leading fleet management solutions for all sectors.”

    What are the potential benefits you are proposing?
    How will the merger affect me as an AVC client?

      We are very excited about the acquisition of AVC. You see, for several years now, Smartsalary has been AVC’s largest customer. As such, prior to the acquisition of AVC, we were quite familiar with its service ethic and collegial culture and this is what motivated us to pursue the acquisition.

      Last year we completed the acquisition of Webfleet, a fleet management business based in Victoria. Webfleet has quite innovative web-based systems, and a strong account management structure, while AVC has strong vehicle sourcing and maintenance capabilities, so the two companies are proving to be quite complementary that together look to deliver industry-leading fleet management solutions. They are both now collocated in South Melbourne.

      To answer your questions specifically, you should continue to experience the same service you’ve had with AVC in the short-term, as we develop enhanced capabilities going forward.
