Car rental software program now equipped with new tools to navigate the road to recovery
There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a year unlike any other. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the car rental industry has had to adjust along the way, which includes embracing new technologies. Car rental professionals have worked tirelessly throughout the year to operate safely in an effort to properly serve customers. Throughout the year, Thermeon has strived to find ways to help our clients not only navigate through uncertain times, but to set them up for long-term success.
Let’s have a recap of what 2020 has brought to Thermeon and our products.
New enhancements designed to enhance customer experience and simplify management
Our development team is committed to improving CARS+ and all our solutions whenever, however they can. In a year where operators were challenged like never before, they have really stepped up big time with some upgrades that can enhance any operation with ease.
Drivers license scanning: Thanks to our integration with 365ID, renter driver licenses and passports can be quickly and securely captured. It scans both sides of the document, validates authenticity and even imports the information directly into RA Open or Frontdesk screens!
CARS+iR Browser: CARS+ iR is now available as a web app, which means you no longer need to use an iOS device to access the platform.
Frontdesk on the way: Frontdesk is Thermeon’s browser based application for counter operations, which can be found within the CARS+ Portal. The Frontdesk GUI application runs in a Chrome browser on any device with an internet connection. The windows have been carefully designed to follow a standard rental data entry flow and process. For more information on Frontdesk, click here, or feel free to contact your account manager.
New partnerships facilitate streamlined revenue management
The team at Thermeon constantly seeks ways to improve our car rental program to ensure our clients’ needs are always met in an industry that is constantly evolving. Let’s run down some new partnerships we secured this year.
RateGain: Partnering with RateGain Technologies has given car rental operators access to rate shopping and revenue management expertise. With RateGain, our technological prowess for car rental software has been merged with RateGain’s experience in revenue management solutions, allowing our clients to identify new revenue generation opportunities.
MarginFuel: our revenue management partner, MarginFuel, is a price optimisation platform with a proven track record in optimising returns for car rental operators. It has been rapidly growing in the car rental industry, thanks to MarginFuel’s stellar reputation on pricing technology. Thanks to our integration with MarginFuel, many of our clients have been able to increase their gross margin by over 15%.
Windcave: Through our partnership with Windcave, we have been able to provide a brand-new payment gateway for CARS+. Fully integrated within CARS+, it creates a seamless payment process via Chip and Pin technology. The system provides ultimate peace of mind for guests and it’s already proving very popular indeed.
Key member brought on board
A few months ago, the Thermeon team welcomes Mark Wanas on board as our new Head of Global Sales. Mark has brought years of experience in several software industries with him. His goal going forward? To make Thermeon as client centric as possible: “It is extremely important that we stand together and ensure each other’s success in order to get through the difficulties,” says Wanas. “Our clients hold up our walls, and we are committed to holding up theirs in return.”
With the amount of work our team has done this calendar year, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their tireless work in continuing to improve and innovate. We’d also like to thank our clients for their loyalty and input in helping us improve our car rental software. We aim to please our clients and look forward to continuing to help in 2021 and beyond.
