Heartbleed Vulnerability Update

A major security flaw, dubbed “Heartbleed”, was detected this week in OpenSSL - the encryption standard used by the majority of websites and services on the internet.

We took immediate steps to patch the potential vulnerability in our infrastructure, and Fleetio is no longer vulnerable.

We have no evidence of any malicious behavior, but we strongly encourage you to change your Fleetio password. We also recommend you change your passwords everywhere else, since this vulnerability affects many services and websites you use.

Please shoot us an email if you have any questions or concerns.






New Referral Program

See who you've referred to Fleetio.

See who you've referred to Fleetio.

Many of our customers have been gracious enough to recommend Fleetio to their friends and contacts who also have a fleet (we ♥ you guys!). Now we have great way for you to refer others and “wet your beak” as well.

We’ve added a simple referral program that rewards both you and the account you refer when they upgrade.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Give out your referral code or special link with referral code included.
  2. When someone visits the Fleetio website using your referral link or enters your referral code on the Subscription and Billing page, your account will be linked to the referral.
  3. When the referral becomes a paying Fleetio customer, you both receive a credit on your next Fleetio bill.

Spreading the word

We also made it easy to share Fleetio (along with your referral code) with your network of friends and contacts. You can quickly email someone your link, or post it to various social networks all from within Fleetio.

Thanks, it means the world to us

We love when customers recommend us to others. Of course it’s nice to get more customers and grow our business, but the most significant part is that someone thought enough of Fleetio to recommend it. That means the world to us.






New Feature: Person Reminders

As a continuation of our People Module features, we are pleased to announce that Person Reminders are now available in Fleetio. With this handy option, you can set people-specific reminders for Licenses, Certifications or whatever is important to your business.

Just like a Vehicle Service or Renewal Reminder, you can easily add options in the Settings area of your account. Then all you have to do is set the due date, due soon threshold and users to be notified. It's that simple.

Challenges for Fleets in the United Kingdom

Although Fleetio is a US-based company, we currently have customers in over 25 different countries around the world, including quite a few the United Kingdom. Admittedly, our team tends to write articles primarily around operating a fleet in North America, but we like to touch on other areas as well.  Having recently spent some time in England and Scotland, I feel like this is a great time to talk about the issues facing fleets in the United Kingdom.
