Enterprise collaborates with Microsoft
Enterprise Holdings is working with Microsoft to bring connected car technology to Enterprise’s car rental, exotic vehicles and commercial truck rental fleets in the US, and soon the U.K. and Canada. Enterprise has already implemented this technology for hundreds of thousands of vehicles with as many as 350,000 vehicles set to be connected by the end of the year. Long term, Enterprise expects to fully convert its fleet to connected vehicles over the next five years.
“Consumers want a more streamlined car rental experience, and our manufacturer partners are looking for more information about how our vehicles are performing. As we approach 350,000 connected vehicles in the U.S. by year’s end, we are not only looking at growing that number, but also exploring and enhancing the additional capabilities a connected fleet can offer with an emphasis on improving the customer experience, as well as the operational efficiencies it offers.” – Shane Behl, Vice President Information Technology for Enterprise Holdings.
“Advances in digital technology are redefining every aspect of our work and life, including transportation and travel experiences. We are pleased about the collaboration with Enterprise, benefitting from the power of Microsoft Azure, to help them scale their connected fleet of vehicles, and ultimately advancing the streamlined rental experience of the future.” – Kelly Rogan, CVP Strategy & Operations, Customer and Partner Solutions, Microsoft.
