TSD’s newest partnership with telematics company, Guidepoint, allows automotive businesses to easily locate any vehicle in their fleet. By integrating a dependable OEM quality GPS tracking system into TSD’s software, fleet managers gain peace-of-mind knowing their most valuable assets are accounted for.
For rental car companies and dealerships, GPS functionality is just one advantage of this partnership. Companies renting courtesy cars or rental vehicles can benefit from Guidepoint’s 24/7 response center for help locating vehicles and assisting in the recovery of stolen vehicles. As companies scale their loaner operations, this partnership will help rental companies and dealerships to streamline their processes.
Tom Gafford, Chief Technology Officer and Corporate Vice President of Marketing at Guidepoint, says:
“Guidepoint and TSD’s shared goal is to support growth at the dealerships using our unique OEM partnerships. Our relationship will make that growth exponentially faster and will allow dealers to utilize technology to help run their business more efficiently.”
