Phoenix Hire and Sales

"The final decision in our selection process was made on the professionalism of inspHire and their dedication and passion for hire”



Background

Five years after selling Kingfisher Hire & Sales to Speedy Hire Plc, Gary Derraven made the decision to re-enter the Hire Arena. After leaving Speedy on extremely amicable terms his intention was to try his hand at something new and he set up business a Commercial Finance Broker but after little of a year he missed the day to day banter of the hire trade which he had been in for over 25 years straight from a school leaver.
Hence on April 7th 2008, Phoenix Hire & Sales Ltd commenced trading from a modern 4000 sq ft unit just 2 Miles from his old Cwmbran head quarters.

The Issue

Right from the start Phoenix Hire & Sales wanted a computer system that would:-

  • Produce documents at the point of hire and termination, which were customer friendly, fast and could be used to promote sales with key prompts
  • Track movements of all plant and sales items giving accurate information to allow them to make informed investment decisions
  • Link to Sage accounts in which they were well versed

  • To have the capability to grow with them and their plans to become a regional and multi depot company.

The Solution

After viewing two other systems (One of which had been used previously by Kingfisher) Phoenix shook hands and placed an order at The Executive Hire show in February 2008 allowing inspHire Office Edition to be installed, uploaded with stock and tested prior to our April Launch.

“Not only did inspHire meet our minimum 4 point criteria it exceeded it in every area. The quote was extremely competitive but the final decision was made on the professionalism of inspHire and their dedication and passion for hire”
