Two months after the launch of its U.S. Affiliate Program, Carwiz announced three new vendor partnerships on Nov. 22 involving car rental software and rate management.
The European-based company, which has a footprint in 20 countries as it works toward an ongoing global expansion, now welcomes Rate-Highway and Fourth Tier as preferred providers, while TSD Mobility Solutions is an approved provider for its U.S. affiliate program. The company says that each of the three providers' capabilities are meant to enhance the Carwiz platform that is already designed to help independent car rental businesses.
More than 10,000 automotive businesses utilize TSD’s car rental and loaner car software. Its new alliance with Carwiz will integrate the companies’ technology platforms to enhance and meet the needs of today’s travelers.
RateHighway has helped many brands grow in the U.S. Its proprietary technology offers real-time business intelligence tools for monitoring web and Global Distribution System (GDS) pricing information. RateMonitor Elite uses artificial intelligence to analyze competitor rate information, and based on each client’s custom criteria, automatically optimizes and adjusts GDS, Internet and reservation system rates based on pricing rules and utilization data.
Fourth Tier recently created Era, a new rental management system to support Carwiz and its network of franchisees and affiliates.
“The affiliate business model is a well-established turnkey business,” said Carwiz CEO Krešimir Dobrilović. “With this reinforcement of our team, we have ensured fully measurable results of that business before the investment. In addition, the mentorship of an experienced entrepreneur is guaranteed for the entire duration of the contract.”
