easiHire Open All Hours At ABTT 2011

Leading sound and communication systems specialist Orbital Sound will set out its easiHire stall at ABTT 2011 at the Royal Horticultural Hall, London, between June 15 - 16 (Stand: 125).
The easiHire online service is designed to provide 24/7 access to all the information needed to put together a rental quotation, providing the ideal tools for professional and non-professional users alike. All items are full detailed with complete specifications and photographs, providing amateur dramatic and education users, as well as seasoned professionals, with comprehensive product information, detailed budget guides and convenient planning tools, Orbital's easiHire delivers fast, simple product selection across individual components or complete systems. Orbital's newest recruit, Rental Desk Assistant Lucy Jenkins, will be on hand alongside Rental Manager Phil Dormer to demonstrate easiHire at ABTT.
Illustrating the convenience of Orbital's easiHire service is the recent experience of Chris Ferguson, Technology Assistant at All Souls Langham Place in London, the only surviving church built by John Nash, the renowned regency architect. Chris required some extra loudspeakers and microphones, to provide increased capacity for an orchestral concert at the church, which acts as a host venue for a number of events. This concert featured the All Souls Orchestra and Chorus, with solo vocalists Michelle Todd and Graham Kendrick.
Chris needed to set up additional monitoring, for the soloists and the drummer. He explained: "I had used Orbital in the past, and already considered them a trusted supplier. I had noticed the launch of their easiHire service and, while planning the approaching concert late one evening, decided to try the new facility. I already knew the type of loudspeaker I'd prefer - MAX12 monitors from d&b audiotechnik - making it easy to navigate the category options.
"Via the easiHire site, I ordered the MAX12 loudspeaker, together with some Crown PCC160 microphones. I received a prompt phone call the next morning, confirming the order and delivery time, and I simply covered the cost by credit card. Orbital delivered the products as promised, in good time for the concert. As far as I know, easiHire is the only service that operates in this way - enabling you to check, plan and arrange equipment rental round the clock. Personally, I think it's wonderful!"
