Since Zubie introduced Zubie Rental Connect early this year, the company has built a partner network that includes software companies TSD, Collateral Consultants and Karz.
On Friday, connected-car platform Zubie announced a new integration that it says will give rental fleet and loaner car operators “seamless access to connected car insights and the ability to improve business operations.”
The new partnership is with Bluebird Auto Rental Software, a software provider for vehicle rental companies. This partnership integrates Zubie telematics data within Bluebird’s RentWorks software platform.
Through the partnership, Bluebird customers will now have access to Zubie’s rental and loaner fleet management features. Zubie said that helps them protect their assets and optimize their business. Features include fleet monitoring, location, and recovery capabilities. Other features improve check-in, lot management, and real-time fuel and odometer capture.
With Bluebird’s integration, its customers will be able to access this information from within the RentWorks platform.
“By integrating Zubie Rental Connect with existing information and service partners, we make telematics more accessible and far more valuable for our loaner and rental fleet customers,” Zubie chief executive officer Gary Tucker said in a news release.
Tucker continued, “We’re excited to add Bluebird to the rental car industry’s most extensive telematics partner network.”
Zubie’s end-to-end connected-car technology since 2012 has delivered real-time information about vehicles and drivers to help businesses manage their fleets.
