Idealease honors top dealers

Idealease, Inc., has awarded 26 Idealease locations in the U.S. Canada and Mexico with the prestigious ONE Idealease Elite award, and 56 Idealease locations earned ONE Idealease status, for 2017.

The awards were recently presented at the company’s 35th annual meeting in San Antonio, attended by about 1,000 shareholders, Idealease location owners and employees, corporate staff, and supplier representatives.

The ONE Idealease recognition program measures performance to 12 standards that ensure consistency in branding, customer service, and product offerings. The ONE Idealease standards help make Idealease the most responsive, fully integrated transportation solutions provider in North America, the company says.

ONE Idealease recognizes the locations that are dedicated to the Idealease core values of Expertise, Responsiveness, and Stability. ONE Idealease Elite locations achieve certain performance standards in addition to meeting the 12 program standards, the company says.

“Our 2017 ONE Idealease and ONE Idealease Elite honoree locations are committed to representing Idealease in the best and most professional manner,” says Lance Bertram, senior vice president, Sales, Marketing & Distribution for Idealease. “These prestigious awards are the highest honors an Idealease operation can receive. Our winners are committed to helping their customers’ businesses grow and they are dedicated to building positive brand recognition for Idealease.”
