ARI will offer SiriusXM to its fleet clients under a new partnership the fleet management company says will help companies improve driver retention rates.
The SiriusXM Fleet Driver Program is available with vehicles equipped with SiriusXM. Qualified drivers can gain access to a two-month introductory subscription to the satellite radio provider's All Access programming package that includes more than 150 channels of commercial-free music, sports, entertainment, news, and comedy.
"Industry studies have shown that SiriusXM is one of the top features that can increase driver retention," said Chris Conroy, ARI's president and president and CEO of Holman Business Services. "More often than not, fleet vehicles are not just used for transportation, but truly serve as an employee’s mobile office. This new partnership between ARI and SiriusXM gives fleet personnel the ability to make drivers’ time behind the wheel more enjoyable."
SiriusXM Fleet Programs feature volume-based discounts for companies who purchase SiriusXM for their fleets as well as a program for self-paying fleet drivers. At the conclusion of the two months, drivers can continue their SiriusXM subscription at fleet-only discount rates.
"ARI is a proven and trusted leader in fleet management and teaming up with them is an exciting step forward for the SiriusXM Fleet Program," said Gail Berger, SiriusXM's vice president of auto remarketing and fleet. "ARI can now provide their clients with the value of a SiriusXM All Access subscription, giving them access to the best audio entertainment available in the vehicle, and SiriusXM will reach many new subscribers in the fleet and commercial market."
