Website Hosting

During the year we changed hosting companies for our web site as the previous company gave extremely poor customer support. We would hate this to happen to any of our clients or friends so would be happy to discuss the situation with you if you have any related concerns as we have carried out a fair amount of independent research into the situation.



We are very concerned about an EU suggestion that, in order to pass the annual vehicle safety check (or equivalent), the vehicle should be presented EXACTLY as it came off the production line. Thus NO alloy wheel upgrades, no after-market towing hitches, etc., etc.. We are all in favour of ensuring safety is maintained but we feel this degree of control is going too far and hope that it is not passed into EU legislation. We would be interested in your thoughts.

Vehicle Parc Data

This year we have received a larger than usual number of requests for vehicle parc data, specifically matched to the client’s requirements, for a variety of regions around the world. If this type of data would be of interest to you, please let us know as we have excellent sources from which we can collate such information.



IMI Presentation

In our last Newsletter we advised you that CIP was now an approved supplier to the IMI of training for the CIP Programme. As a result of interest in this Programme we have been invited to give a presentation to selected Members of the Institute of the Motor Industry, at their Head Office in Hertfordshire, on 1st February. The CIP Programme helps Members earn points towards their CPD (Certificate of Professional Development).



CIP  Programme

What is the CIP  Programme? At the risk of boring our older contacts (!) it is a system to help companies become more efficient and profitable by helping you and your staff use time and resources more effectively. This also improves employ loyalty and, most importantly, customer satisfaction with your company. For more details please contact us and/or visit

HR Continuous Improvement Process 

The Complete Hr Programme

CIP has, after many years of looking, found a “state of the art” software with the right features and functionality for managing, motivating and growing a high-performance workforce

The key features are:

#  HR in Control ~ It tracks and manage the entire workflow process from your HR department. Configure and launch as many processes and forms as you want, exactly the way you want them, whenever you want to without help from your vendor or IT.

#  Flexible Evaluation Forms ~ Set up talent management forms to look exactly the way you want them. Match the look of your current evaluation forms for continuity. Use your brand, your competencies, scoring, weighting, etc.

#  Organisational Goal Alignment ~ Align employee goals with higher level organisational goals, not just their managers’, and let everyone, up and down the reporting chain, see their progress and status.

#  Integrated Development Planning ~ Address a skill gap by attaching a development plan directly to a competency, supporting performance based learning and a focus on applying our Continuous Improvement Process.

#  Real Time, Instant Reporting ~ Get instant, real-time data on process status, employee performance, development needs and goal progress, all with the click of a mouse (no longer an annual ritual).

An award-winning solution, that dramatically simplifies and streamlines the entire employee performance management process.

It is widely considered by many industry experts to be the most powerful, convenient and cost-effective way to conduct:

·                  Performance evaluations,

·                  Develop critical talent, and

·                  Ensure employee goals are aligned with those of the organisation.

It comes loaded with best-practice features, and a library of forms and competencies, is a flexible, easy-to-implement and simple-to-use tool that provides all the features you need to conduct comprehensive 360-degree assessments over the web, with point-and-click simplicity, which lets you schedule, manage and track all learning activities and easily measure the effectiveness of your training investment in terms of improved employee performance.

It also tracks certification and licensing status and expiries. Give your training administrators access to the training needs of individuals, departments and talent pools, so they can build targeted training programmes that close skill gaps and build the talent your organisation needs to succeed.

For details of this award-winning, proven solution which uses today’s industry-recognised best-practice talent pool model, which is practical, affordable and easy to use please contact us for further details.
