Clutch Technologies finalized a pair of relationships on Monday to expand its presence in the vehicle-subscription space.
First, AmeriDrive, operator of one of the largest subscription fleets in North America, chose Clutch Technologies to power the all-new AmeriDrive portfolio of subscription services.
Then, HyreCar announced a partnership with Clutch Technologies, a Cox Automotive brand.
In a news release, AmeriDrive said it has rolled out its new offering in three locations, including south Florida, Austin, Texas, and north Atlanta, with more than 500 vehicles supporting both consumers and gig-economy drivers. The company operates one of the fastest growing subscription fleets with plans to further expand its footprint in 2020.
“Clutch’s technology gives us both the flexibility and control to manage our entire subscription fleet with one powerful, easy-to-use platform,” AmeriDrive chief executive officer Carlos Hernandez said.
“With real time visibility into our customer driving habits, we can better segment and service our base with the best vehicles, terms and pricing options to satisfy a host of driver demand patterns,” Hernandez continued.
AmeriDrive provides an alternative to vehicle ownership enabling customers to subscribe to a vehicle based on their driving needs. The company leverages Clutch’s Single Vehicle Subscription product that’s designed to give AmeriDrive a simple and easy way to maximize its used fleet while simultaneously allowing consumers access to a vehicle without the hassles of financing.
Two subscription plans will be available — a seven-day option or a 28-day option — both inclusive of insurance and maintenance.
“Customers like AmeriDrive represent why Clutch exists – to provide the technology backbone that supports the optimization of a fleet of vehicles that meet a variety of consumer profiles and ever-changing needs,” Clutch Technologies president Vince Zappa said. “As AmeriDrive expands their footprint, our technology will support the growth of their business.”
