Fleet decision-makers have voted Ogilvie the UK’s top vehicle leasing and fleet management company for service to customers in the 2017 Experteye awards.
Topping the category, which recognises service to fleet operators with more than 250 vehicles, makes it an unprecedented seventh year in succession that the contract hire and fleet management specialist has won an Experteye award.
Fast-growing Ogilvie Fleet has, in recent years, seen the number of company cars and vans on its books under lease and fleet management arrangements expand to more than 15,000 with industry-leading customer service and cutting-edge IT instrumental in underpinning that growth.
The latest triumph further builds on Ogilvie Fleet’s quintet of customer service awards and a customer innovation award won in the previous six years thus further underlining the company’s leadership of the UK contract hire and leasing industry in putting clients first.
The Experteye awards cover eight different fleet and automotive categories in total. Ogilvie’s Fleeteye CSI honour is based on results obtained throughout 2016 from Experteye’s market-leading post-sale customer satisfaction survey, drawn from a subscriber base of top leasing companies in the UK.
Fleet operators are surveyed independently by Experteye, who ask an extensive range of questions on a monthly basis. The annual CSI award goes to the company that has achieved the highest combined results across the entire year.
Experteye’s chairman and founder Rick Yarrow said: “To win the category for customer service once again is extremely impressive. “But for this to become Ogilvie’s seventh successive Experteye award, across multiple categories, is quite breath-taking.
“What makes our awards so sought after by contract hire and fleet management specialists is, rather than being awarded by a judging panel, they are based on independent feedback we receive from customers. There is no better judge than the fleet operators themselves to decide who is delivering the best service.”
The Fleeteye CSI remains the benchmark survey in the fleet sector for measuring service levels from major contract hire and leasing providers. Companies that subscribe enjoy flexible back-end reporting and the ability to tailor the question sets so that they are meaningful. Fleet managers who complete the survey also benefit from accessing industry benchmarking data giving them vital statistics on how well they are being served compared to other fleet operators.
Nick Hardy, sales and marketing director, Ogilvie Fleet, said: “Without innovation and customer service excellence companies decline. Ogilvie Fleet prides itself on delivering both to customers, which is one of the key reasons why the company is expanding.
“Seven consecutive Experteye awards underlines the consistency of excellent service delivery across the business by our employees.
“Operating in a mature market in which many organisations have a similar product portfolio, consistently excellent customer service is among the standout offerings from Ogilvie Fleet.
“It is particularly gratifying to be recognised by Experteye because the awards are wholly independent as they are governed by private responses from fleet decision-makers. The award therefore recognises how our customers truly feel about the service they receive from Ogilvie Fleet.”
Ogilvie Fleet provides contract hire, leasing and fleet management solutions for UK and European companies operating vehicle fleets ranging from five to 2,000+ units.
The fleet today totals more than 15,000 vehicles, making the company one of the largest independent contract hire and fleet management specialists in the sector.
Ogilvie Fleet’s reputation is built on an ability to deliver bespoke solutions and a consistently high quality of service, linked with competitive pricing and a ‘real world’ ability to work in partnership with clients. In essence, the organisation delivers the perfect combination of small company service ethos and large company buying power.
That philosophy has won Ogilvie Fleet a string of industry awards in recent years. They include: winning the Experteye Fleeteye CSI (customer satisfaction index) Award in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, Customer Innovation Award 2014, and Customer Service to Fleet Operators with more than 250 Vehicles Award in 2015 and 2016; winning the 2012 Best Customer Service Award at the annual Fleet News Awards; the Leasing and Contract Hire category of the 2013, 2014 and 2015 BusinessCar Fleet Technology Awards; beating 49 other contract hire and leasing companies to win the ‘FN50’ Customer Service Award from Fleet News in 2012 and the FN50 Customer Service Team Award in 2013; being named Fleet Service Company of the Year in the inaugural Business Eye Northern Ireland Fleet Industry Awards 2014 and Innovative Company of the Year in the 2015 Awards; and winning the 2016 Fleet World Innovation Honour in Mobile Communication.
