Daniel St Claire, CarSharing & eMobility Manager at Alphabet GB Limited with the 2017 Intelligent Mobility Services award from the International Auto Finance Network
Fleet leasing and mobility experts Alphabet GB Limited today announced its success in the 2017 International Auto Finance Network (IAFN) Awards held in London. As well as being ‘highly commended’ in the category of ‘Best Product or Service for Fleet Finance’, the company scooped the coveted award for ‘Intelligent Mobility Services’ for their joined-up approach to meeting customers’ changing travel needs.
Daniel St Claire, CarSharing & eMobility Manager collected the awards on behalf of Alphabet and commented afterwards: “Mobility seems to be the word on everybody’s lips at the moment within the industry but at Alphabet it’s something that we’ve been focused on since 2010. As a result, we have a broad range of real-world solutions active in the market, such as AlphaCity, AlphaElectric and AlphaRent to help customers meet their specific requirements for flexible, sustainable and efficient business mobility on demand.
For us mobility isn’t just the future, its right now. Alphabet customers drove over a million ‘shared miles’ in AlphaCity cars last year, we delivered over 10% of the UK’s OLEV grant-eligible electric or hybrid vehicles, plus our dedicated fleet for extended rental is larger and more utilised than it’s ever been. So we are absolutely delighted to have received this Intelligent Mobility Services award as it recognises the efforts of the whole team at Alphabet as well as our forward-thinking customers who have been on this ‘mobility journey’ with us over the past few years. Thank you.”
Professor Colin Tourick, Co-Founder of the International Auto Finance Network and host of the Awards commented: This award is designed to recognise the company that has introduced the best intelligent mobility innovation in the last two years. ‘Mobility solutions’ are solutions that offer alternatives to or complement the traditional company car. These reflect the desire by many companies to ensure that every journey is carried out in the most cost‐effective and environmentally friendly way.
Alphabet received this award for the quality and breadth of advanced mobility solutions they provide. The panel of judges highlighted that these services save customers money and time when budgets are fragmented across travel, fleet, sales, operations and HR. Alphabet evaluates a customer’s total mobility needs then addresses these with a combination of innovative, technologically-advanced and integrated products including AlphaCity carsharing, AlphaGuide app, AlphaRent extended rental and their Teleservices initiative.”
