Last week was another thrilling one for the team here at Spiffy, as we announced our Fleet Management as a Service (FMaaS) model and officially unveiled our six Fleet-First cities. The response has been incredible, to say the least, and we’re excited to use FMaaS to support more fleet managers across the country!
If you missed the press release and follow-up media coverage, here are a few highlights and links to an array of press outlets from last week’s announcement.
WRAL TechWire: Scot Wingo’s go-national strategy for Spiffy but keeping the scrubbing (Exclusive Q&A)
“In an exclusive Q&A with The Skinny, veteran entrepreneur and investor Scot Wingo talks about the latest – and largest-to-date – funding round for Get Spiffy which will drive a national expansion program, adding a host of new large cities to its fleet maintenance offerings, and new services including fleet management which he says is awfully similar to software as a service.
But he’s not leaving behind Spiffy’s manual get-rid-of-the-grime roots of the on-demand vehicle maintenance startup even as Wingo & Company add more to the menu of offerings.”

“With this round, Spiffy is debuting what it’s calling Fleet Management as a Service (FMaaS), an end-to-end solution for rental car fleets, car-sharing services, and others to manage preventative maintenance on a large scale.
Fleet managers often have to deal with different vendors across the country when trying to service their vehicles, with no main hub to keep track of the current health and maintenance data of the fleet. Wingo says this forces them to 'spend a ton of time on vendor management and coordination.'
With Spiffy’s solution, fleet managers can schedule, track, and pay for all preventative vehicle services through the Spiffy app.”

“The round, which also included infusions from new investors Zunis Investments and Trog Hawley Capital (as well as existing backers Bull City Venture Partners and IDEA Fund Partners), also means a platform expansion. The company is debuting what it calls Fleet Management as a Service to help fleets maintain their vehicles. That service rolls out to new markets Denver, New York, Phoenix, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington D.C., as well as existing metros Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and Raleigh-Durham.
The service gives companies a one-vendor solution, he says. Fleet managers use an app to schedule, track, rate and pay for vehicle services, from pre-delivery inspections to carwashes to preventative maintenance. FMaaS is targeted at firms such as rental car companies and car-sharing services, and will roll out to additional cities later this year, Wingo says.”
“For a while now, there has been Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). And more recently, there has been the development of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS).
Now you can add another item to the “as-a-service list;” this time in the fleet space.
On Wednesday, Spiffy, an on-demand car care, technology and services company, introduced Fleet Management-as-a-Service (FMaaS) to help fleet managers maintain their units across the entire vehicle lifecycle.”
“Spiffy continues to clean up in the on-demand car-care space.
Today the company announced a $10M funding led by New York’s Tribeca Venture Partners, with local participation from existing investors Bull City Venture Partners and IDEA Fund Partners, as well rolling out a new service that it’s dubbing FMaaS to 11 markets, including six brand-new cities.”
“As you can see by the cool graphic above, Spiffy’s FMaaS services cover the full cycle of needs for fleet owners, from “in-fleeting”—bringing new vehicles into the fleet—to preventative maintenance to “de-fleeting.” Spiffy (OK, its official corporate name is “Get Spiffy, Inc.”) didn’t make up the latter term, but Wingo helpfully defines it for us.”
