Telefónica has won a deal to provide telematics to car hire company Hertz in Mexico.

Hertz will use Telefónica’s Smart m2m platform to manage its fleet, collecting key data from the business cycle and maintenance process.

The engine data provided will allow the company, which offers the largest car rental fleet in Mexico, to be more efficient in managing the drop-off process after a rental.

Telefónica is partnering with engineering telematics company Geotab to provide the service.

Vicente Muñoz, Chief IoT Officer at Telefónica said: “This is a relevant case study for the industry in Latin America and an example of our expertise in how we can help our clients in their digital transformation through an IoT solution.

“This mobility solution will help Hertz Mexico provide an enhanced experience to its customers during their rental periods”.   
Telefónica said revenues from M2M services grew 3.1 percent to reach €51 million in the three months to September, its most recent financial results.

The Spain-based company is the second operator to sign a deal with Hertz this month.
Orange’s enterprise arm won a contract to provide IoT connectivity services to Hertz across seven European countries.

The three-year deal will see Orange Business Services help to speed up the deployment of Hertz 24/7, an hourly rental service, in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK.
