TECHIES 2012: Small is beautiful
20 June 2013
Ogilvie bagged the highly commended spot in the leasing and contract hire category of BusinessCar's 2012 Techie Awards. Bosses Nick Hardy and Matt Topham tell Jack Carfrae what the modestly proportioned leasing company is up to.
The big leasing companies generate the big headlines. Alphabet's merger with ING and Lombard's exit from leasing and subsequent cleanup by ALD, for example, made the cover of BusinessCar and soaked up their fair share of column inches last year.
Look a little further down the leasing company list and things become quieter, so the smaller firms have to work harder to get themselves noticed, which often means doing things a bit differently to the establishment.
Ogilvie, which currently sits just inside the top 20 in BusinessCar's BC50 list of the top 50 leasing companies, took the highly commended spot in the Best Leasing and Contract Hire category in our 2012 Techie awards with its Mi Fleet online reporting system.
The swish technology has proved a hit with those using it and came to existence as part of a rebrand and customer service drive over the past four years which has also seen the firm grow its fleet size.
