Are you a Rental Company? This is why you should think about automating your business.
Having a connected fleet can offer several advantages for operators in the rental car sector.
1- In general, automation can improve rental companies’ overall performances, reducing operating costs, and enhancing the customer experience.
2- The system’s efficiency is globally improved, as operators can monitor the fleet’s state in real-time: optimizing maintenance and repairs, and enhancing vehicle safety through detailed knowledge of driver’s behavior.
3- Automation also helps to reduce operating costs by eliminating the need to hire additional staff to manage rental activities.
4- The car-key is no longer needed to open and close the vehicle.
5- The check-in process becomes fluent, since all the documents are provided and signed through a mobile app which reduces customer waiting times, making vehicle pick up and drop off faster.
Additionally, automation minimizes the in-person front-office activities, reducing the overall operational costs.
How can automation help my customers?
From the customer’s point of view, automation of rental car services offers several benefits. In particular, users can reserve, pick up, and return the vehicle, saving time and reducing the stress associated with renting a car at the counter.
Digitizing the booking process can make the car rental service more accessible, for example, through online bookings, mobile apps, and online payment options and it also might bring money saving through online discounts and promotions.
Among all the benefits mentioned above, using a Software-as-a-Service solution can provide greater flexibility for rental car companies looking to optimize their renting solutions. In particular, some of the benefits of a SaaS solution rely on the availability of real-time data and insights on vehicle utilization, customer behavior, and rental trends, allowing rental car companies to make informed business decisions and improve their operations for maximum profitability.
