The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-09-09T21:40:55Z ORIX identifies South Australian boom, appoints local BDM 2019-09-09T21:40:55Z orix-identifies-south-australian-boom-appoints-local-bdm Adelaide, Australia – SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 Global fleet services provider ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) has recently expanded its presence in South Australia. Experienced fleet expert Alex Alvarez has been appointed its new business development manager on the ground. “I’m excited about getting to know local executives and businesses, and talking to them about their fleet needs,” says Alex. “I’m bringing my NSW expertise to SA and we’ve identified some core industries whose bottom lines we believe we can improve through our leading technology and service.” Given the state’s significant construction growth, with the ongoing space works, mining infrastructure and a rise in residential investments, ORIX has identified a need amongst South Australian businesses for a more flexible tool for trade vehicle solution. “A flexible commercial fleet is vital for servicing the construction industry. We know construction projects have limited or changing timelines, so they need a fleet that can flex to suit the project needs with mini- or seasonal leases for tool of trade vehicles,” says Alex. The health industry is also an area of growth in the state. The NDIS now services 27,000 South Australians, with that number on the rise. “We’ve already developed solutions for companies in the disability and aged care sectors,” says Alex. “For example, our carpool booking system enables employees to share vehicles; ideal for an industry so reliant on shift work.” Small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) account for 98% of South Australian businesses and are under increasing pressure to be agile and flexible. Mini-leases and car-pooling are just some ways smaller businesses can continue to drive their business growth and keep their people and products on the road, while also using smart telematic technology to minimise operating expenses and save time on fleet management. “At the end of the day, our goal is to ensure the businesses in South Australia are getting the most out of their fleet. That is, that they’re mitigating risk, and saving themselves time and money,” says Alex. As one of Australia’s leading full-service fleet management providers, ORIX is committed to helping businesses realise more value and efficiency and have more confidence in their fleet and leasing arrangements. No matter how big or small their operations. “We’re excited to talk to these growing South Australian sectors – and work out how we can apply our flexible and financially optimised solutions to their projects,” says Alex. <ENDS> About ORIX Australia Corporation Limited ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) is one of the world’s leading fleet management companies.

ORIX Australia launches MOOV Vehicle Acquisition Platform for SMEs 2019-01-30T01:33:17Z orix-australia-launches-moov-vehicle-acquisition-platform-for-smes Sydney, Australia – January 30, 2019 – ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) has launched an Australian industry-first, end-to-end online vehicle acquisition platform designed specifically for Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), including sole traders. The new platform, MOOV, enables Australian SMEs to view and compare vehicle specifications and costs, see financing options at a glance, and order the vehicle. SMEs can now do this all online at their leisure, wherever they are, reducing common frustrations with acquiring a vehicle. “Australia is home to 2.1m[1] SMEs and sole traders, many of which need a simple and reliable way to acquire vehicles; MOOV was created specifically for those companies as they simply don’t have the time to visit dealers to compare vehicles or wait in call centre queues to discuss available financing options,” said Mary Moran, General Manager – Business Solutions, ORIX Australia. “By moving the entire process online, SMEs can reduce the hassle involved in the traditional vehicle buying process, while benefiting from ORIX’s fleet expertise and nationwide fleet-buying power.” MOOV provides a range of financing options including finance lease, operating lease, business vehicle loan or buying outright. Leasing provides SMEs with cash flow predictability and may free up capital that can be better invested elsewhere in the business. Regardless of the financing option selected, associated vehicle related expenses, such as fuel, tolls and scheduled maintenance, can be bundled together with the lease payments into a single monthly itemised invoice for convenience and transparency. “We want to provide a more efficient experience for all of our SME customers,” said Moran. “Recent news of tightening credit conditions may lead them to consider financing options beyond traditional sources. The flexibility of our MOOV platform, backed with our expertise in fleet solutions, provides SMEs with an easy and transparent way to explore flexible financing options to meet tomorrow’s challenges, which for many SMEs, includes a thorough revaluation of what mobility actually means to their business.” <ENDS> About ORIX Australia Corporation Limited ORIX is a global diversified financial services organisation listed on both the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IX) and Nikkei 225 (TYO: 8591).

Known for its willingness to push new boundaries in digital transformation, ORIX was recognised in the AFR Most Innovative Companies list in 2017 and 2018. Hilliard will lead the fleet management company through the next stage of its digital journey, overseeing all platforms, integrations and internal processes to manage the large volumes of fleet data ORIX provides to its customers through its client platform, OneView. “We see innovation as a commitment to providing better client outcomes, and it’s embedded in all aspects of our culture,” commented Reggie Cabal, CEO and Managing Director of ORIX Australia & NZ. “With Richard’s background in financial services and digital transformation, we’re looking forward to further challenging old ways of working in the fleet industry.” Hilliard spent the last three years leading digital transformation at Aussie Home Loans, and has over 20 years’ experience in delivering complex change across the financial services sector. He says he finds ORIX’s attitude towards transformation refreshing, as the leadership team clearly see it as the driving force in ORIX’s future. “There is a huge opportunity to use the vehicle data we have to further improve our customer experience, and help them reduce costs and optimise their asset use,” he says. He is also excited to bring his knowledge and experience to an industry that is undergoing such significant transformation globally. “This is a chance to work in the dynamic mobility market, where electric vehicles and driverless cars are inevitable. ORIX sees that as an opportunity, rather than a threat, and is leading the way in its focus on what that means for its clients.” Hilliard says his main motivation is building effective partnerships and high-performing teams who get close to the customer, and he’s been surprised and delighted by the deep industry knowledge and passion of his new team at ORIX. “They’ve already delivered some great achievements, so we have a strong base to build on.” ORIX has just released its new customer reporting, providing insights including fleet efficiency tracking, driver behaviour monitoring and fleet performance against industry benchmarks.
