I.D. Systems and Avis Budget Group have executed a new purchase agreement to deploy 75,000 additional units of I.D. Systems’ proprietary wireless rental fleet management systems in Avis Budget’s vehicle fleet.
I.D. Systems’ wireless in-vehicle management system permits two-way data communications between a vehicle and various car rental operating systems. Combined with Avis Budget’s other existing technologies, I.D. Systems’ rental fleet management systems enables Avis Budget to rent and check-in vehicles virtually, all on a mobile device. The system provides Avis Budget with unique insights into the mileage, fuel level, and condition of a vehicle the minute it is returned to an Avis location. These capabilities significantly streamline and automate the vehicle data collection and billing process.
The agreement provides Avis Budget a variation of the technology to test in Europe and enables the device to provide full Zipcar functionality. I.D. Systems expects to begin delivering the hardware in the second quarter of 2019.
