Thrifty Car Rental was found in the US in 1958 as a value-orientated car hire company. Today the company has over 1000 locations across 70 countries both wholly owned and Franchised
In the UK, the company has 115 car and van hire locations.
Having supplied Thrifty for several years with adhoc print, it was besley & copp’s account manager that identified that Thrifty would benefit from the implementation of our eSupply Portal solution.
At that time, Thrifty had no company intranet and was heavily reliant on basic internal administration to deal with their ever-expanding network’s print requirements and stock control of a huge number of business critical hire documents.
With an ambitious acquisition strategy planned, it was essential that Thrifty managed this side of their business.
besley & copp carried out a detailed business audit, not only the companies print demands, but also in order to understand the growth plans for the business.
We then created ‘Thrifty Easy Order’, powered by our cloud-based eSupply Portal solution. ‘Thrifty Easy Order’ provides the company with a scalable web-based solution for all 115 UK branches enabling them to:
Take advantage of low-cost stakeholder communication
De-centralise order administration
Put in place a secure and robust authorisation procedure
Monitor and control Thrifty’s print expenditure
The modular design of the eSupply Portal serves as a foundation that enables the system to grow and develop as the customers business develops and changes. In fact after only a few weeks of going live, besley & copp identified the opportunity for additional savings.
Taking advantage of our desktop stationery service operated in conjunction with our partner, branches can utilise the eSupply Portal powered website to not only order their operational print, but to also order and manage their desktop stationery without the need for additional branch logins.
The eSupply Portal can handle much more than just print. Think of it as an extension of your overall procurement strategy, a company intranet or even a training hub. The ultimate in web-based print management.
The eSupply Portal has been a great fit for Thrifty Car & Van Rental and allows them to grow aggressively with a scalable and fully accountable web-based solution.
