CARL RAE JEPPEN, PHILADELPHIA—Car rental company Carrefour, which helps travelers book their rides online and provide car service, has used data to tailor its service to the needs of customers who are looking for a quick ride.
Carrefours app can provide users with more information about a trip, including its distance and destination, which could help them plan their trip better.
The app also shows where people will be staying during the trip.
“We know that people want a quick trip, and if you’re doing a quicktrip, you’re probably going to want to find a car that’s cheaper, you’ve got a carpool or you’ve just got a lot of people coming together,” CarrefOUR founder and CEO Peter Jankovic told Business Insider in a phone interview.
Jankovich also told BusinessInsider that the company uses “deep data” to improve its app and the service.
The app lets users pick a car from a pool of cars that have similar mileage, make it more secure, and offer different prices, and they can choose a car based on their location.
They can also customize the app with an itinerary, the dates, and other information.
Carrefour can also display trip information, including how long the trip is, when it starts and ends, and how much it costs.
The company has already been able to show how long it takes for people to travel by analyzing the route data on other transportation apps, including Uber and Lyft.
“It’s a big opportunity to improve the service for our customers,” Jankowitz said.
“We’re able to deliver a much better service to our customers and make them feel that their car is in great hands.”
For example, in addition to showing a map, users can also set a trip target and other details such as when they will arrive at their destination.
CarRefours can also track the drivers who book a trip to see how often they take people to their destination and how long they stay there.
The company also uses deep data to help determine the number of people who will be traveling in the trip and how many people are on each vehicle, according to Jankovs CEO.
The number of vehicles and people in the vehicle will also help Carrefor identify when they need to close a route, which will allow them to better plan their ride.
Carriever, another car rental company, has also been able a better service for its customers.
Carriever lets users choose a vehicle from a variety of manufacturers, including Honda, Toyota, Ford, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, and it can also show users information such as its MPG and other statistics about the car.
The service can show the mileage of a car, as well as its fuel efficiency and the price of gas, as a tool for customers to decide on a ride, according the company’s website.
Carriers also can use Carriewe as a “road map” to find drivers who are willing to provide a ride.
