2010 International Program - Brittany Haas

By: Global Rental Alliance  05-Apr-2012

This has been a very productive week. I was able to go on a few deliveries and observe how Camden Hire’s process works on the road. It's amazing to see how some things would change once we arrived, how adjustments were made and why communication is so important. I watched a software demonstration on a new system they are looking at purchasing. That was very interesting to participate in since I know their current system and the one we use at Crown Rental. The new system looks like it will work for them quite well if they decide to purchase.

We traveled to several different hire stores and I was able to see some of their set ups. We went to YES events and met up with Neil Wallis, current president of HRIA. It was great to see how his store was laid out and then to see one of the job sites that his store was working on. I was able to go to a Kennards branch and see their set up as well.

Sunday we had lunch with Phil Newby, HRIA CEO, and his wife along with Neil Wallis and his wife. It was nice to meet all of them and get to know them. We're all looking forward to seeing each other again in Vegas!

I leave for home this week. This has been an outstanding experience.
