This was the key finding following a range of topics discussed at a Rental Technology Summit held last week by automotive technology provider Fleetondemand.
The research gathered at the summit showed that the ever evolving and sophisticated technology needs of corporate fleet clients via leasing and rental companies has become a key feature in providing software as a service.
As a result the requirement for technology change requests and frequent new release features has become increasingly imperative in modern systems development.
At the event Fleetondemand unveiled a free and innovative “community release” which will enable all users of the system to put forward functionality and development requests for delivery during 2015 and beyond.
Nicki Montero, Finance and Administration Director – FleetEurope speaking about the “community release” said
“What a great idea to incorporate the best ideas from all users, be they customers, suppliers or partners in the future development of the platform and to the benefit of all.”
Sarah Easton, Managing Director at Fleetondemand commented
“We are delighted by the response and feedback that we have had from our inaugural Summit. This has been a culmination of 3 years hard work from everyone in the Fleetondemand team and would not have been possible without the support of our customers, suppliers and partners. In a week where we have also launched our new website (fleetondemand.com) – times are very exciting”
In addition Caroline Gallagher, Director – Corporate Sales, Thrifty Car Rental said
“The Summit was a unique and interesting way of promoting the future technology market . It is not often that customers and suppliers attend an event like this together.”
