I.D. Systems, a provider of enterprise asset management technology, has shipped more than 10,000 units of its Unified Telematics Platform (UTP) to Avis Budget Group for installation on its rental fleet vehicles in the U.S.
Avis has certified the UTP in 18 make/model combinations and is already using the devices in over 50 locations across the country.
Avis Budget Group is playing a significant role in the car rental space with the Avis Car Rental mobile app that interacts with connected cars. The app allows renters to manage their entire rental experience from a smartphone.
Drivers can choose the exact car they want, change or upgrade a vehicle while at or near the lot with a simple swipe, view their rental agreement, lock and unlock the car and more.
