Solace Home Healthcare Partners with Enterprise Fleet Management to Provide Company Car Benefit for Employees

DENVER (April 27, 2016) – Solace Home Healthcare, a Denver-based home health company specializing in the niche market of pediatric and adult home healthcare, is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to offer company vehicles to its growing team of nurses and therapists.

Solace Home Healthcare employees will receive a new Nissan Rogue as part of the organization’s partnership with Enterprise Fleet Management.

“Our work would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our team of qualified nurses and therapists who provide in-home health services to clients throughout the greater Denver area,” said Solace CEO Mike Billinghurst. “We’re committed to offering our employees the best benefits package we can. Being able to drive a new car – for both professional and personal use – without paying for insurance, gas or maintenance is a significant benefit we’re thrilled to provide to our talented and committed team of clinicians.”

Enterprise Fleet Management is a privately-held, full-service fleet management business for companies, government agencies and organizations operating medium-sized fleets of 20 or more vehicles, as well as those seeking an alternative to employee reimbursement programs. The company, which manages more than 425,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, provides local service to its customers through a network of more than 50 fully staffed offices throughout North America.

Solace employees who participate in the program will receive a new Nissan Rogue for their business and personal use.

Enterprise Fleet Management will conduct ongoing use and performance monitoring, as well as track fuel purchases and miles driven − ensuring that all of Solace’s vehicles are properly and regularly maintained. Enterprise Fleet Management also will handle licensing, registration and auto insurance, as well as provide fuel and maintenance cards to cover vehicle expenses.

The initial phase of the program involved the deployment of 13 vehicles this spring, with additional vehicles being provided upon request. Solace estimates its fleet size will double by the end of 2016.

“In addition to being an attractive employee benefit that supports recruitment and retention efforts, fleet cars will also have a positive impact on Solace’s business operations,” said Larry Caster, senior account executive for Enterprise Fleet Management in Denver. “The use of these newer, well-maintained and fuel-efficient vehicles will contribute to more reliable service and cost savings over the long run.”
