Thrifty Car Rental South Africa Installs Vehicle Tracking on Fleet

Thrifty Car Rental South Africa selected Novatel Wireless' Mobile Tracking device, the MT 2500, to manage and protect its fleet against theft, damage and loss in the area, according to an Oct. 9 press release.

The MT 2500 captures and monitors driver behavior, relaying vehicle information on rapid acceleration, harsh braking, speed violations and excessive idling. It is also equipped with an optional battery for communications when power is lost.

“Thrifty originally selected Novatel Wireless' solutions based on their proven design and delivery of detailed analytics to suit our needs,” said Thrifty Car Rental South Africa Managing Director Lance Govender. “Leveraging the information we are able to gather from our current fleet of vehicles means we can improve driver experiences, keep close track of inventory and pass on savings to our customers.”

    Good day,

    I am looking to get in touch with Lance Govender, the MD of Thrifty, regarding the extremely bad service I have received from his team. If someone can please provide me with his contact details I would appreciate it. Alternatively, I can be contacted on [email protected]

    Regards,
