Posted on by Mark Knight

BC Tech awards 2018 WEB

Ogilvie Fleet has notched double top in the 2018 fleet industry ‘Techies’ - the annual awards that recognise the fleet industry’s technology-specific products and services across all areas of the business car market - thus repeating last year’s twin triumph.

Ogilvie Fleet won the Remarketing Award and the Editor’s Choice Award for APPraisal, its smartphone app designed to help fleet managers and drivers overcome often contentious end-of-contract damage charges on company vehicles.

Launched this year, APPraisal is a sister app to the company’s award-winning ‘Happy Drivers’ App, which contains a raft of features and information available to all fleet managers and company car and van drivers not just customers.

The two awards, the latest in a raft of industry award triumphs stretching back almost a decade, further cements Ogilvie Fleet’s position as the number one contract hire and leasing company for providing the most technologically advanced and sophisticated management and information solutions to customers.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond delivered his third Budget speech this week (Monday, October 29, 2018).

It was the final Budget prior to the UK leaving the European Union on March 29 next year. However, the Chancellor said that in the event of the UK being unable to secure a Brexit agreement with the European Union, and therefore there being a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, he would hold an emergency Budget.

Below we highlight the Chancellor’s key autumn 2018 Budget measures that will impact on the company car and van sector and the wider motor industry.
