- Spiffy — an on-demand car care company that recently introduced a Fleet Management as a Service — recently announced it raised more than $10 million
On-demand car care, technology, and services company Get Spiffy, Inc. (Spiffy) recently introduced a Fleet Management as a Service to help fleets maintain vehicles across the entire vehicle lifecycle. Recently, Spiffy raised more than $10 million and the company will be expanding into six new markets with Fleet Management as a Service (FMaaS) and rolling out FMaaS in existing Spiffy markets of Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and Raleigh-Durham. The new FMaaS markets include Denver, New York, Phoenix, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington, DC with more to come in 2019.
This round of funding was led by new investor Tribeca Venture Partners and included investments from new investors Zunis Investments LLC and Trog Hawley Capital LLC. Existing investors Bull City Venture Partners and IDEA Fund Partners also joined the round.
“Fleet Management as a Service broadens Spiffy’s goal of zero-friction car care to include national Fleets,” said Spiffy CEO Scot Wingo. “Offering full lifecycle maintenance management gives Fleet Managers a one-vendor solution and, with features that are EV/AV and connected-car friendly, we have designed it to be future-proof.”
FMaaS enables rental car fleets, automotive auctions, midsize fleets, and car-sharing services to manage their vehicle in-fleeting, preventative maintenance, and de-fleeting with the seamless marriage of digital-enabled fleet services.
And Fleet Managers utilize a fleet-friendly Spiffy app to schedule, track, rate, and pay for vehicle services including pre-delivery inspections, reconditioning (wash/detail), preventative maintenance (oil change, tire rotation) and de-fleeting (de-fueling, label removal) along with a comprehensive set of other services.lkme
“We’re excited to invest in Spiffy as they continue to grow,” added Tribeca co-founder and managing partner Chip Meakem. “The comprehensive Fleet Management as a Service offering positions Spiffy to ride the wave of change crashing through the automotive industry. From rental and commercial fleets to partnerships with innovative ride-sharing companies, like Lyft, and the recent Ford connected car partnership, Spiffy is riding several megatrends.”
Spiffy now has over 100 vans in 11 cities and more than 150 W-2 employed trained technicians. Spiffy offers a variety of car washing, detailing, and maintenance service options ranging from hand car washing to advanced detailing and oil changes. And customers can schedule in less than two minutes with the Spiffy app. All of the services can be conveniently performed on-site at office parks, residences, and fleets using the Spiffy Green system.
