Avis Partners With Verizon Business

Avis Budget Group has recently selected Verizon Business to manage its IP network.

Under terms of the three-year agreement, Verizon Business is managing and maintaining the Avis Budget’s networks linking more than 30,000 employees, as well as 1,900 Avis rental car locations throughout North America, including Canada, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Additionally, Verizon Business is managing Avis Budget Group's wireless local area network (LAN), which enables the company to electronically process car returns, submit billing information and issue customer receipts using ROVER – hand-held wireless devices that connect seamlessly to the company's data center.

The wireless LAN also powers Avis Budget Group's Wizard on Wheels (WOW) IP-based application, which helps manage the movement of airport shuttle buses between airport terminals and car rental locations.
