D is for Data

Many different kinds of businesses are making use of data for their benefit. For example, telematics analyzes driver behaviour to reduce costs and improve safety. This tool can monitor speeding, harsh acceleration, idling, braking too harshly and taking inefficient routes. Telematics reports have assisted Avis Fleet customers save on costs including wasted fuel, wear and tear on vehicles and effective vehicle maintenance. This solution, used with our Fleet Interactive Portal, allows Fleet Managers to use data to their best advantage.
