It’s all very well having an idea, but turning it into reality is always the hard part.

When we thought of running an awards for technology in fleet we didn’t realise how many high quality entries we’d receive.

Almost all were of the impressive standard, with an obvious amount of time and effort having gone into their preparation. And it was this high quality that made the judging process hard.

Our initial thought was to simply offer a first place in each category. However, it quickly became apparent that in some cases a ‘Highly Commended’ placing would have to be offered due to the cleverness of certain devices or services. So if you’re a fleet manager looking for a product in one of our categories, we would say both our winners and those ranked as Highly Commended are worthy of consideration.
