So Your Fleet Has Risky Drivers, Now What?

Vendor Network Expansion

Donlen is excited to announce that we have expanded our maintenance vendor network by 50 percent to more than 30,000 vendors in the U.S. and 3,000 locations in Canada. This expansion will provide customers with more coverage, favorable pricing and reduced program fees. Additionally, we have also revamped our Find feature in FleetWeb® and the Mobile App. Now there are enhanced filters available that allow customers to perform even more refined maintenance vendor searches, such as vendor category, vehicle classes and types of services; all in an effort to help customers find the right vendor for their service needs.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for HumanityFor Donlen employees, the phrase actions speak louder than words has never been more applicable. Donlen cares deeply about our community and the people who live in it. However, rather than just talk about how much we care, we decided to put our money where our mouth is. That’s why Donlen’s product team spent a day with Habitat for Humanity Lake County, Illinois building a home in nearby Waukegan, Illinois for a single mother. The work you put into your community determines what you get out of it, and Donlen is determined to lead by example. Click here to see our product team in action.

Historically, the latest innovations in vehicle technology debut on high-end luxury vehicles because developing new features is an expensive endeavor. But history has also shown that many of these new technologies become common features in less expensive vehicles eventually. In fact, features such as a navigation system, stability control and even traffic-adaptive cruise control were once the domain of high-priced cars, but now they are commonplace on even entry-level models.

Edmunds highlights the newest safety and technology trends in this recent article. To see some of the newer luxury vehicle technologies that are available now, click here.

Have a great holiday weekend and safe travels.
