Five new members have been appointed to the 1link Hire Network Customer Forum as use of the platform continues to expand.

New members are Amanda Cunningham of FMG Support, Ian Bennett of Ogilvie Fleet, Ann Chiverton of TCH Leasing, Alison Mead of Grosvenor Contracts and Sharon Avery of ARI Fleet.
The Customer Forum has been continually consulted on in the development of Release 27 of 1link Hire Network, the most significant enhancement to the platform yet seen, released soon.
Chair Julie Griffiths of Lex Autolease said: “The Forum fulfils an important role in promoting best practice, discussing new ideas and also guiding future development of the platform. It is very pleasing to see these new members comes on board.”

Their direct involvement in the platform’s future strategy and development is extremely important to epyx.”
