Avis Budget Group has announced a partnership with the Israeli data services start-up Otonomo.
Otonomo’s Automotive Data Services Platform will help Avis gain new insights from its connected cars, which span a diverse range of makes, models and telematics technologies. Avis says the partnership will help it gain insights to reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.
