Connected Car Zubie Telematics Finds Hertz Vehicles at Airport in GA

Zubie, a leading connected-car platform and telematics provider is increasing operational efficiently with a first-of-its-kind industry partnership with the Hertz franchise in Athens, Georgia.

The 45-day Zubie/Hertz pilot resulted in immediate improvement of fleet efficiency including real-time vehicle location, reporting and alerts that improved vehicle utilization across the fleet. Vehicles returned or idle within and outside their network were quickly identified resulting in faster vehicle processing and increased revenue generation.

¬†“Due to our franchise’s close proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International¬†Airport, our vehicles were often difficult to find in the mass of airport rental returns,” said Rich Sinda, Athens, Georgia Hertz franchise owner/operator. “Zubie made it quicker and easier to pinpoint those vehicles so we got them back to the lot and back out on rent sooner.”

Now that the pilot is complete, Sinda said he will be expanding Zubie to his entire fleet. His Hertz franchise is located at 1020 Ben Epps Drive in Athens, GA.

“This partner has found that Zubie is a fast, simple, and economical solution for many operational challenges. But most importantly, they now understand how the Zubie fleet management platform can also save both time and money,” said Glenn Udall, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Zubie, Inc.

As a connected car platform, Zubie fleet managers have access to vehicle location, vehicle health and diagnostic information, driver safety scores, and trip management tools at their fingertips.
