All winners

Last year’s winners collected their awards in Madrid, Spain

The award will recognise a digital innovation that enhances a rental business. This could include technology that makes rental operations more efficient – whether in sales, logistics or administrative functions – or which improves a rental company’s interactions with customers, such as a customer App or other customer service offerings.

The judges will be looking for a digital development that really made a difference to a rental company during 2019.

Jointly organised by the European Rental Association and International Rental News (IRN), the awards are a great opportunity to see your company’s performance or product given wider recognition.

Winning a European Rental Award brings with it significant benefits. Being judged ‘the best’ by your peers not only bolsters the confidence of your existing customers but it can also help to attract new business.

In addition, it can boost the morale of your workforce by demonstrating to them that their hard work and dedication is acknowledged by the wider industry.
