Great Dane Trailers is now taking applications from fleets to enroll in its AdvantEDGE program, a national accounts purchasing program for parts and service. The company is also in the process of implementing the program throughout its 130-location network of Great Dane dealers and affiliated service and parts provider partners in the United States and Canada.
Among the benefits the program offers fleets is consistent parts pricing, standardized labor rates and centralized billing, according to Great Dane. Users will be able to view their service and parts purchase history online, allowing them to track expenses and trends better.
Fleets also can control expenditures by assigning user-specific spending limits and putting safeguards in place, such as the requirement of a purchase order number if charges exceed a pre-assigned amount.
For Great Dane dealers and affiliated parts and service providers, the program “will bring new fleet business to their door, and expand business among existing customers as well,” says David Durand, director of aftermarket parts for the Savannah, Ga.-based company. The program also will help control cash flow better because there is guaranteed reimbursement through Great Dane.
Great Dane partnered with Multi Service to execute the program, which currently is being tested and is expected to fully launch throughout the United States and Canada in the next several months.
