COO & Co-Founder at 2hire
“The vehicle rental industry is full of family businesses that have been
running for 30 or more years and are used to a traditional way of doing
things. Everything is still done on paper or with multiple different softwares
and there’s so much room for innovation. Our centralised car rental
platform combined with 2hire’s telematics solutions are set to completely
revolutionise the car rental industry for even the most tech-illiterate
operators and end-users.”
