Affiliated Car Rental Endorses Bluebird

Dover, NJ USA. – Bluebird Auto Rental Systems (BARS) announced that they have been endorsed worldwide by Affiliated Car Rental, the holding company for Affordable, Sensible, and A Substitute Rent A Car. The arrangement allows dealers to benefit from the cost-effective, windows-based software offered by Bluebird Auto Rental Systems, combined with the rental operations support program offered by Affiliated.

Several dealers had been using Bluebird for many years, but now Bluebird is officially endorsed exclusively.

“Making the decision to go with Bluebird for our dealers was an easy one”, explained Brendan Lewis, General Manager of Affiliated Car Rental. “Bluebird’s history with our members was the deciding factor. Support and a quality product for our members is so important because 95% of our members have entered into the vehicle rental business as an add-on to the primary automotive related business, not to mention that the vendors you put your members with is a direct reflection of your program. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship going forward.”

The primary product being endorsed is NetRent, Bluebird’s Software as a Service offering of their flagship RentWorks product. “This is the best value for the money available in the market today”, quoted Angela Margolit, President of Bluebird Auto Rental Systems. “Dealers of Affiliated Car Rental will not only have a robust and feature-rich auto rental software, but outstanding service and support to back it up. And wonderful tools such as the Reservation Planner – which allows specific vehicles to be assigned to reservations – will allow them to run their companies with ease and simplicity.”
