Commitment to Innovation
Enterprise Holdings is committed to providing the right solutions for customers to meet their mobility needs today and in the future.
“While many may think of us first when seeking a car rental service, that description only scratches the surface of what we do and the unique role we play in the global mobility ecosystem,” added Taylor. “Paired with our focus on exceptional service, our strength continues to lie in our ability to bring innovation in transportation to life at scale to make travel easier and more convenient for our customers.”
To support this effort, Enterprise Holdings has spent more than $3 billion on acquisitions and corporate-venture capital investments or commitments since 2008. This includes investments in dozens of ground travel and technology companies in the U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Ireland, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Israel and China.
For example, the acquisition of Deem in FY2019 will enable increased access to innovative solutions for the business traveler. The travel platform includes Deem Work Fource and Deem Ground Work – a suite of online booking and travel technology products for business travelers, travel managers, travel management companies and suppliers.
As the largest annual purchaser of automobiles, Enterprise also is working closely with vehicle manufacturers to increase the number of connected vehicles in its fleet – with the goal of offering a fully connected fleet of more than two million vehicles.
“The potential for the products and services we’ll be able to offer customers when all vehicles are connected is limitless,” noted Taylor.
In FY2019, the company also introduced Subscribe with Enterprise, marking the industry’s first vehicle-subscription service to provide the increased access, flexibility and convenience that consumers desire.
