Leading tech-driven business mobility provider, Nexus Vehicle Rental, has been awarded the SaaS Company of the Year trophy at the Prolific North Tech Awards 2022.

Nexus has continued to deliver strong growth and the business credits its success to its tech-driven solution; innovative rental management platform, IRIS. Through IRIS, Nexus customers have access to an unrivalled rental supply chain of 550,000 vehicles across 2,000 locations.

This win follows a series of awards success in recent years for Nexus, including winning Best Software Product of the Year at the Business Car Awards in 2021 and being named Transport Tech Company of the Year at the 2022 Global Business Tech Awards. Nexus are also finalists at the upcoming, prestigious Lloyds Bank British Excellence Awards and earlier this year, were included in Yorkshire Business Insider’s list of the top 100 fastest growing businesses in Yorkshire.

Commenting on this latest accolade, James Maden, Sales and Marketing Director at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “With technology at the heart of our business, we remain focused on bringing innovative solutions to the market to ensure we can respond to customer demand and supply changes effectively. We work with customers across a multitude of sectors and our rental management platform, IRIS, connects some of the UK’s largest fleets with a consolidated network of approved suppliers, to ensure they have the tools they need to deliver their business with maximum efficiencies.

“We are always looking for new ways to develop our IRIS platform in order to provide greater functionality to users and meet the changing needs of our customers. Being named winner of the SaaS Product of the Year award is a real testament to the hard work of our team who strive to bring the best tech-led mobility solutions to market every day.”

Over the last 20 years, Nexus has successfully carved its market niche by applying technology to meet changing industry trends and customer demands. Last year, Nexus launched its alternative mobility solution with passenger taxi service, Nexus Go, and is now preparing for the launch of its complete on-the-go rental solution, Nexus Connect.
