Department of Treasury & Finance, SSP Car Pool

From all of the team here at Ecco Software, congratulations go to the Department of Treasury and Finance (Vic) and in particular the Shared Service Provider Car Pool team.  Last week they went live with their new mDrive vehicle booking system developed and configured by Ecco Software to meet the car pool needs of the various departments within the Victorian Government.

To date, two fleets are operating on the mDrive system with many more expected to come online in the coming months.  The project, undertaken as a part of the ‘Efficient Government’ initiative, promises to deliver significant savings to many government departments who have been independantly managing their of vehicle fleets.

With a wholly integrated authorisation system and the sophisticated reporting that exists within mDrive, the Victorian Government is now very well equipped to ensure that the car pool activities of it’s various departments are running smoothly and efficiently.
