Bluebird Introduces Data Bridge for Budget Rent A Car

Bluebird Auto Rental Systems (BARS) announced that they have released a "Data Bridge" with Budget Rent a Car which is integrated with their RentWorks vehicle rental software.

The bridge provides real-time access to the Wizard system, allowing Budget licensees to look up corporate rates and customer profiles when making a reservation or opening a rental agreement. In addition, one-way vehicles can be tracked to other locations participating in the Data Bridge (licensee locations using Bluebird or Orion software or corporate locations using Wizard), and rental agreements are transmitted to the Wizard information system and data warehouse.

The roll-out of the Data Bridge has already begun. It is anticipated that all licensee locations using Bluebird software will be live by the end of the first quarter of 2007.

Bluebird's Auto Rental application software, RentWorks, enables dealerships to more efficiently manage their service loaner fleets – expediting the rental process and improving the overall customer experience.

On June 1, 2006, Bluebird Auto Rental Systems purchased the assets of Orion Systems, who maintains the Data Bridge for Budget Rent a Car.
