PROJECT: Hertz Mobile App
CLIENT : Hertz

 

CLIENT OVERVIEW

The Hertz Corporation, a subsidiary of Hertz Global Holdings Inc., is an American car rental company based in Estero, Florida that operates 9,700 international corporate and franchisee locations. As the second-largest US car rental company by sales, locations, and fleet size, Hertz operates in 150 countries, including North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and New Zealand.

SITUATION

Hertz required a mobile app to allow its prospects to get a quote for their rental, book a car, modify reservations and link up with their existing backend bookings system.

SOLUTION

We worked closely with the Hertz project team to custom build an app on our cloud hosting platform, which would allow them to make rapid changes when required. The app also used a modular system, which would give non-coders a quick way to change content, features and push notifications to their prospects.
