PHH Arval has launched three new technology platforms to help clients gain additional data about their vehicles, the fleet management company announced today.

The offerings — called Clarus, Clarus Driver and PHH Xplore — harness customer data to empower PHH's clients to make informed strategic decisions. The products, which have been created and tested with customer input, help fleet managers and drivers increase productivity, according to PHH Arval.

"Our new tools present clients with a window into what's happening with their fleet and allow customers to manage the decision-making process quickly and efficiently," said Jim Halliday, PHH Arval's president.

Clarus is a new platform for delivering fleet management data and supports fleet-related tasks for PHH clients. It taps into guided analytics to provide business intelligence that identifies exceptions, recommends a solution and helps the user take action. With its customizable library of applications and robust reporting features, the tool addresses the needs of light users as well as those of power users.

Clarus Driver allows drivers to access their fleet information from any device. It offers capabilities such as task management, mileage reporting, and maintenance shop and fuel location finder. With the tool, drivers can complete vehicle-specific tasks in a way that's easy, intuitive and convenient.

PHH Xplore is a dynamic business intelligence tool developed to take data mining to the next level. It can access large amounts of data quickly and analyze them in real time to empower fleet managers to uncover opportunities for fleet cost savings and vehicle fleet productivity.

"We're making dramatic improvements in our clients' ability to access large amounts of data quickly and to slice and dice it instantly," said Robert Sandler, PHH Arval's senior vice president of customer experience and enterprise consulting.
