An improved daily rental service including more competitive rates is being offered by Ogilvie Fleet to customers.
The development follows the introduction of a new technology-based platform through which the contract hire and leasing provider can manage short-term vehicle requirements on behalf of clients.
Additionally, fleet customers now have the ability to make their daily rental vehicle reservations online as well as via email or telephone.
The development is the result of the implementation of Nexus Vehicle Rental’s Intelligent Rental Information Software (IRIS) platform, which integrates with Ogilvie Fleet’s online fleet manager portal MiFleet Showroom, which was launched last year.
Nexus Vehicle Rental is the UK’s leading provider of vehicle rental supply, outsourced rental management and systems. The IRIS platform offers customers 24/7 access to a secure, web-based system to manage the full rental process, provide total cost control and deliver real time, tailored reporting.
As well as Ogilvie Fleet customers being able to continue to hire vehicles through the company’s existing suppliers, they will have the ability to leverage the critical mass of daily rental partnerships and thus cars and commercial vehicles that Nexus Vehicle Rental has built up.
Consequently Ogilvie Fleet clients will benefit from: increased rental coverage across Britain and Northern Ireland, access to a greater range of rental vehicle suppliers, a wider breadth of vehicles thus ensuring the option for like-for-like replacement in addition to the potential for cost savings.
Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: “We are using Nexus’ software systems to expand our rental proposition to customers through access to an enlarged supply chain and thus a wider range of vehicles from the standard to the specialist.
“More competitive rates and a faster booking service, including online if required, ensures that we offer a more efficient daily rental service than we could previously.”
The partnership with Nexus Vehicle Rental further underlines the move by Ogilvie Fleet, which has more than 11,000 vehicles on its books, to utilise online technology to deliver solutions and improved operating efficiency to customers.
