Barchester Healthcare signs up Alphabet to supply mixed fleet

Barchester chose Alphabet following a six-way tender in 2015 that saw the business mobility specialist lead the way on the value for money and customer-supplier compatibility.

“Alphabet came out above the others. Not just on cost – although it has to be said they were also the most cost effective – but also because we felt they were a good match for Barchester. They provide a good quality of service for us and they work with us in helping us operate the fleet,” Kevin Inns, Barchester's fleet manager, explained.

Barchester also uses Alphabet's AlphaRent+ rental solution, which is designed for longer rental requirements such as probationers and starters waiting for a permanent vehicle.

Kevin Inns added: “We continue to see a lot of recruitment in 2015-16, which creates the need for 30 or more temporary cars at any one time to cater for new starters. Alphabet’s lead-in fleet solution is a very important part of keeping the fleet ticking over without having to rely on daily rental.”
