Medical Protection Society (MPS) is the world's leading protection organisation for doctors, dentists and healthcare professionals, protecting and supporting the professional interests of more than 300,000 members around the world.
Pendragon Vehicle Management (PVM) began working with MPS in late 2014, tasked with improving the operation and efficiency of its company car fleet. This has involved the launch of a full fleet management programme, from an initial fleet policy review, to online driver ordering, risk and accident management services and short term vehicle rental provision. Following the success of this, in April this year, we were delighted to extend our partnership with MPS by launching our SimplyDdriveIit car salary sacrifice scheme to MPS's 800 UK employees.

Michael Edwards - Compensation & Benefits Manager for MPS, said:
"We decided as a business to increase the benefits we have available to employees by introducing a salary sacrifice scheme for car leasing. We wanted to implement this to be 'live' from April 2016 and started work with Pendragon in February 2016. The timescales were not ideal but we were able to achieve this largely in part to our account manager Alex Hull. Within that time we produced all the documents required both from a legal and company perspective. In addition, Pendragon delivered presentations in our offices in Leeds, London and Edinburgh. These were well received and as a result we had huge interest in the scheme. The presentations explained the impact on pay and benefit reporting very clearly. Within the first six months of the scheme being 'live' we have taken on 15 new vehicles which in total would mean investment in the car industry of approximately £275K.
All the way through this process, the impact on the business has been minimal, as Pendragon take full ownership of this and with our online ordering system, all initial queries are dealt with by them.
I am very pleased with how this scheme has gone and a key reason for this is the way Pendragon work for us."
SimplyDriveIt is a great addition to the MPS benefits package, giving employees the opportunity for a brand new, fully maintained and insured car.
Meanwhile, PVM is continuing to work closely with MPS through regular account reviews, identifying cost efficiencies and ensuring MPS's car schemes continue to meet the businesses evolving needs.
