The company claims the new system will be able to consolidate and optimise fleet management over several countries, facilitating the management of international fleets.
Internet fleet management will give Avis's customers real-time access to information on their vehicles when they want it, and in the format that they want it.
The system will feature about 50 standard reports, and enable customers to create their own reports through individualised sort and aggregation facilities.
In the United States, GECFS's web ordering system averaged more than $3 million a day in online vehicle ordering transactions last year, and the company forecasts that this total will reach $7 million per day.
The American system includes a direct link to vehicle manufacturers, allowing GECFS customers to submit their orders directly to a manufacturer. (May 2000)
