IMS Products and Solutions for Rental Vehicle Companies

Adapt to a Changing World with Confidence.

The World Has Changed – Is Your Business Changing With It?

Rental vehicle companies are seeking ways to digitally transform their businesses due to a number of challenges they are currently facing:

  • COVID-19 has had an immediate impact on tourism, resulting in fewer vehicles being rented.
  • New cleaning and sanitization processes are resulting in vehicle downtime and challenges.
  • No optimal way of managing an accident when it happens, including determining liability and fault.
  • Unable to proactively deter poor driving behavior which leads to claims.
  • Manual approaches to obtain mileage and maintenance information resulting in costly repairs.
  • Rental automation has a direct correlation to increases in vehicle theft.

Is there a way for rental vehicle companies to adapt to a changing world?

IMS One App with SDK for Driver Behavior

A small but problematic proportion of drivers that rent vehicles treat them recklessly and often become involved in accidents damaging the cars they are renting. Rental agencies can benefit from acquiring driver behavior information, screening for those drivers most likely to cause damage to vehicles.

Using the industry’s most configurable mobile app development framework paired with the IMS One App SDK, you can now access driver behavior insight, in addition to vehicle insight. Visibility of high-risk driving behavior helps prevent accidents and claims while complying with Duty of Care responsibilities. Additionally, safer driving practices translates into reduced wear and tear on vehicle assets, ultimately protecting residual values of your rented vehicles. In extreme instances, bad drivers can even be blocked from renting vehicles.
