The Promotion Committee of the European Rental Association (ERA), the European Rental Association, met in Brussels in ERA’s office on 25 January.
Among the different topics on the agenda, the Committee worked on finalising the preparation of the next ERA Convention, which will take place in Amsterdam from 2 to 4 May 2017, together with APEX and IRE.
The Committee also discussed a possible way of improving the TCO Calculator, http://equipmentcalculator.org/ adding a comparison with leasing. So far, the TCO calculator determines what the real cost of owning and operating equipment is and gives the possibility to the user to compare to the cost of rental. A comparison with leasing would help the user to make a better decision, having all the parameters on one tool.
The Committee also reviewed the e-book project and the communication strategy of ERA.
The Promotion Committee is open to every member of ERA. If you are interesting in joining or if you wish to receive more information on the works of the Committee, please do not hesitate to contact the ERA Secretariat, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
