New contract to supply Merit Merrell Technology
The corporate vehicle rental division of CLM has been appointed by construction and engineering group, Merit Merrell Technology (Merit), to meet the short and medium term rental requirements of its engineers on site visits throughout the UK.
Merit, which focuses on a number of high technology and complex industrial sectors including biotechnology, pharmaceutical, nanotechnology and semiconductors, decided to change its existing rental supplier following poor service levels.
The company selected CLM based on the ease of booking hires online through its sophisticated web-delivered rental management system and the national coverage of its network, which includes over 1,000 locations throughout the UK.
Fleet management and rental specialist CLM (part of the Maxxia Group), has helped many different companies from a variety of industries to meet their short term hire needs and to do so cost effectively and efficiently.
The company has a series of initiatives it utilises, all of which have been proven to provide short to medium term rental vehicle requirements as cost effectively as possible. The company’s rental management system, for example, enables clients to book, extend and cancel vehicle rentals online, as well as monitoring existing rentals and accessing a comprehensive range of management reporting and invoicing.
The system also tackles the issue of daily rental invoicing, which can be a nightmare from an administration point of view. Invoices coming in from different suppliers with administration charges on top can be difficult to keep track of.
However, the CLM rental booking system readily generates online invoices, allowing them to be e-mailed or saved on the system. This allows users to create reports any time, with the facility to resolve disputed invoices at the click of a button, together with consolidated invoices for all rentals instantly available online.
CLM provides all customers with free access to the rental booking system, offering the following benefits:
- Online invoicing
- P11D report at the press of a button
- Multi -supply network
- Accept or decline rental invoices, with an immediate online response when you decline
- Paper-free solution
CLM operates a multi-supply, national network with all of the leading rental suppliers, who between them have over 1,000 outlets in the UK. This provides around-the-clock access to a whole range of cars, vans, minibuses, heavy goods vehicles and other niche vehicles capable of matching the requirements of corporate customers at extremely competitive rates.
This brings the following benefits:
- CLM’s buying power produces no-hassle competitive prices
- Online booking system with access level capability and instant management information reporting
- No turn down on all core bookings
- Full nationwide coverage
- UK and international rentals
- A dedicated, six-strong rental team, which means one phone call for all of your needs
Rental Manager, Paul Nagra, said: “We are delighted to have won this new contract to meet the short and medium term rental needs of Merit Merrell Technology and look forward to working closely with them over the course of 2014.”
