ISO certification to open door to new business, says Ogilvie
The privately-owned vehicle leasing and fleet management company has seen its fleet expand to almost 11,000 cars and light commercial vehicles in recent years due in part to major investment in IT systems.
As a result of achieving the international quality management standard (ISO 9001) and international environmental management standard (ISO 14001), the company believes it has all the credential to secure new business with major public and private fleets.
Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: ‘Allied to our investment in fleet and driver management systems and coupled to our awards success, certification to the two international standards will further enable Ogilvie Fleet to engage with major private and public sector fleets.
‘However, we are not complacent. The path to successful certification highlighted some internal policies and procedures that are ripe for further development and we are now working on those to further increase efficiencies for ourselves and our customers. Continuous review is all part of the certification process and that is what Ogilvie Fleet will be focusing on to ensure certification is retained in 2016.
He added: ‘The company continues to evolve, which is why we have invested heavily in a suite of unique online tools – notably MiFleet Showroom.
‘We know that we have won and retained business because of our record in IT development and customer service, but securing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification will better enable Ogilvie Fleet to compete for larger contracts.’
