Dublin-based RentalMatics, which provides telematics to the car hire sector, has entered a three-year agreement with Queensland-based East Coast Car Rentals as it launches its connected car platform in the Australian market.

The Irish start-up says it will help East Coast Car Rentals, which was established in 1979, reduce its operating and insurance costs, and optimise vehicle utilisation and revenue opportunities.

“This marks a milestone moment in the growth of RentalMatics as we introduce our telematics and fleet management solution to the Australian market,” CEO and Co-Founder Colm Menton said.

East Coast Car Rentals MD Rohan Marx says the platform will help his business explore new marketing angles and mobility solutions. The RentalMatics offer “far exceeded” competing telematics solutions, he says.

“Telematics is part of our future, enabling us to manage our fleet far more precisely, reward customers for great driving and assist with damage claims.”
