The Hertz Corporation Adopts OEConnection Technology

The Hertz Corporation has implemented OEConnection LLC's, CollisionLink solution in more than 100 Hertz airport locations throughout the U.S. CollisionLink is OEConnection's ecommerce technology designed to facilitate fast, accurate online procurement of original equipment auto parts for vehicles that have been involved in an accident.

Tested at Hertz locations that manage their own vehicle damage estimates, CollisionLink has proven to save significant time on collision repairs enabling vehicles to quickly return into Hertz's rental fleet, the company reports.

"Fast, efficient repair is critical to the rental car industry," says Joseph Nothwang, Hertz president, the Americas and Pacific. "Everyday a rental vehicle sits in a body shop is a day it's not in the rental fleet earning revenue. Hertz has been aggressively reengineering its business and CollisionLink plays an integral role in that process."

In conjunction with the national rollout, Hertz is implementing CollisionLink as a standard operating procedure within their collision repair estimating process.

CollisionLink automatically extracts collision repair system estimates already in use by Hertz damage estimators and seamlessly converts repair estimates into complete, accurate parts orders which are electronically submitted to participating dealerships. Dealership parts personnel can then begin immediate order fulfillment helping to shorten lag time between parts delivery and vehicle repair.
