A new whole life cost comparison product has been launched by Clear Vehicle Data (CVD).
Whole Life Cost Pro is designed to assist fleets with vehicle selection, fleet policy list decisions and purchase negotiations.
It can also be used for benchmarking contract hire quotes and as a dynamic tool for anyone involved in negotiating vehicle sales or supply.
CVD says the features that differentiate Whole Life Cost Pro from its other products include a full vehicle configurator inclusive of options pricing, and the ability to filter down vehicles to a selected policy list based on predetermined criteria.
The software tools are supported by independent data compiled by International Decision Systems (IDS), and although the core new vehicle data is sourced from vehicle manufacturers, CVD says forecasts within the tool are prepared by independent automotive industry experts.
Whole Life Cost Pro joins the established Lite and Business versions of Whole Life Cost, which also include company car benefit in kind and employer's National Insurance calculators.
CVD CEO Ian Hare said: "Our new top-level product offers medium-sized and larger fleets the ability to formulate policy lists, and to negotiate vehicle supply in detail with manufacturers and dealers.
"This is powerful cloud-based softwarejoins our web-based products, which are suitable for smaller fleet operators."
"This is also data that will assist anyone involved in the vehicle supply chain from manufacturers to dealers and leasing companies as well.
"Whether purchasing or selling vehicles, it allows the user of the tool and data to negotiate from a position of strength."
