East Sussex leasing company Neva Consultants has won a British Chambers of Commerce regional award for best use of technology to improve business performance.
It will now go forward to represent the south region in the national finals, which take place in London on November 26.
The award follows Neva Consultants's launch of products such as C-Fleet that help customers manage and monitor their vehicle fleets and meet duty of care obligations.
C-Fleet is a cloud-based system that allows fleet managers to organise everything from insurance renewals, MOTs, monitor mileage, and view vehicle contracts. Drivers can also access key information via the system.
Graham Prince, senior partner for Neva Consultants, said: “We have won a number of awards recently but this is definitely one of the ones we are most proud of.
"We are constantly developing our offering and investing profits back into technology that makes our customers’ lives easier so it was brilliant to achieve recognition from the judges for our efforts.
"In an industry where legislation and regulations are constantly changing, and needs of customers change, it’s important to remain ahead of our competitors by introducing new products and services.”
Neva Consultants offers contract hire, vehicle finance and fleet management services to multi-national companies, SMEs and private individuals.
Operating a fleet size of 5,000 vehicles at any one time, Neva advises on all aspects of vehicle procurement and management including vehicle choice, tax efficiency, green fleet and duty of care obligations.
