Hertz Offers microFIDS Digital Signage

Hertz has selected ARINC's microFIDS digital signage solution to provide up-to-the minute access to flight information at its San Diego Airport location.

"Hertz is reinventing the car rental experience with a goal to make our customer's travel experience as easy as possible," said David Trimm, Hertz chief information officer. "With microFIDS, we have found a cost-effective way of giving customers the information they need, right when they need it. Customers at our San Diego location have complimented the system and Hertz for making important flight information available as they plan their return trip to the airport terminal."

With microFIDS, Hertz provides up-to-the minute flight, weather and destination information outside the rental office, so passengers can see critical travel-related information, says the company.

"Hertz is employing a number of key technologies to improve its customers' travel experience," said Christopher Forrest, managing director at ARINC Managed Services. "By using ARINC's digital signage solution to provide important information, Hertz is taking one more to step to make their customers' travel easier and less stressful."

ARINC’s microFIDS feature outdoor screens and can be placed outside of rental offices or in parking areas. For travelers arriving at the airport, microFIDS provide the first opportunity to see their flight status.
