Mercury provides consulting, information technology, research, and professional development training services to public and private sector fleet operations, fleet industry product and service providers, and investors in the fleet industry. This includes serving as subject matter experts for global management consultancies, defense contractors, and think tanks. Our information technology professionals host commercial off-the-shelf IT solutions for numerous fleet and logistics management software companies.
Our consulting services range from broad-based reviews of all facets of an organization’s fleet management practices, to tightly focused analyses of a single issue or opportunity such as “Can we reduce the size of our fleet?” “Should we replace our fleet management information system?” “How can we reduce our maintenance and repair expenditures?” and “Should we lease or buy vehicles?”
Our most common fleet consulting projects are best practices studies; fleet technology consulting; optimal vehicle replacement cycle analysis; outsourcing and managed competition feasibility studies; policy and procedure development; vehicle replacement studies; RFP development and management; fleet utilization / rightsizing / VAM studies; and vehicle specification development.
Mercury provides application service provider (ASP) hosting and business support services for organizations that do not have the in-house expertise or personnel resources needed to properly maintain sophisticated software applications. We have provided ASP hosting since 2002 and operate two Level(3) Communications data centers.
As recognized experts in multiple disciplines of fleet management, Mercury consultants are sought out to provide unbiased training, develop independent instructional materials, and objectively weigh the pros and cons of best-of-breed fleet products and services. Mercury has conducted dozens of fleet management workshops and seminars around the world, including in Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. We also provide training and certification in several federal fleet management disciplines through the National Property Management Association. The Federal Fleet Certification program is a nationally recognized course of study that enables people in the business of federal fleet management to obtain an education, achieve certification, achieve recognition, and improve competitive skills.
We also provide consulting services in other areas, such as sustainable and green fleet management strategy development, fleet program consolidation, organizational restructuring, executive recruiting, expert witness services, product and service development, market research assistance, and much more.
