Wessex Fleet Solutions has this week become the latest major fleet to sign
up to epyx’s 1link Hire Network daily rental e-commerce platform.
The Salisbury-based company is adopting the platform in order to more
efficiently handle growing demand from its customers for daily rental
services, explained marketing director Simon Naylor.
He said: "We are seeing sustained growth in our business at the moment and,
as a result of that, are handling ever greater volumes of daily rental
"With Thrifty as our main supplier alongside a variety of other national and
local providers, we have been looking for a solution to enable us to improve
the entire short term hire process and believe that 1link Hire Network fits
Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, said: "We have seen
several major leasing companies sign up to use 1link Hire Network in 2011.
The platform continues to gain momentum."
For purchasers of daily rental services such as major fleets, 1link Hire
Network enables online easy comparison of multi-supplier quotations and
subsequent booking. For daily rental suppliers, it provides access to new
customers as well as electronically validating bookings and other major
process improvements. As with other 1link platforms, a major benefit for all
parties is the massive reduction in telephone traffic to manage bookings.
Wessex Fleet Solutions was founded in 2004 and offers vehicle rental,
leasing and fleet management services to private and corporate customers.
The company combines more than 35 years’ experience of working in UK vehicle
rental and leasing.
