Unison renews deal with Venson
The trade union selected Venson on an initial three-year agreement following a major tender exercise and the shortlisting of three potential providers. Since then, the deal, which covers the supply of cars on contract hire with full maintenance and an accident management service, has been extended on a 12-month rolling basis.
Jonathan Zadeh, one of three procurement advisors at Unison and the organisation’s fleet expert, said: “Venson as a smaller vehicle leasing and fleet management company has been able to deliver a bespoke service and manage all driver-related issues directly without reference to Unison.”
He added: “Costs are important to all organisations, including Unison, but it was the promise of service quality that won through because we did not want to be firefighting.
“Venson has lived up to Unison’s expectations and has delivered in many areas.”
