In this day and age, it’s common for companies to put out apps for smartphones. Although Hertz has released apps in the past, it has recently launched a new one called NeverLost Companion. Design by Navigation Solutions and Hertz, the companies claim that it’s a one-of-a-kind travel app that other car rental companies don’t offer.
The idea behind the NeverLost Companion app is to help integrate not only navigation but trip planning as well. This app gives travellers access to millions of U.S. destinations so that they can plan their trips right from their mobile devices. After they have planned their trip, they can easily sync the information with the NeverLost GPS system that comes in Hertz cars. This app goes far beyond just offering navigation. It gives people access to local weather, events in that area, social media sharing of the trip, augmented reality and much more.
The CEO and Chairman of Hertz, Mark P. Frissora, said that the company is always looking to innovate. It wants to come up with the best and most consumer friendly technology on the market. The end result is to enhance the car rental experience. Regardless if people are searching for gas stations, restaurants, local events or hotels, this app will help them by providing information on more than 10 million destinations. The NeverLost Companion is going to give people the ability to make every trip memorable.
The app is completely free for people to download from either Google Play or iTunes. The app goes beyond other navigation apps by offering detailed information on many places. In fact, it comes with thousands of detailed city guides for places all over the country, providing information about local events, must-see spots, trendy restaurants, parks and even tours. People can use this app to visit a place before they have even sat in a Hertz car and can select destinations to add to their “My Favorites” folder.
The director of public relations at Navigation Solutions, Graham Weedon, said that the company is extremely happy to introduce the NeverLost Companion app. This is a new app available to Hertz customers. While developing this app, Navigation Solutions wanted to make finding information on certain locations easier. Instead of making users search for all of this information, it put all of it in one easy-to-find location.
