Founded in 1957, Enterprise is the largest car rental provider in the world with a network of more than 10,000 locations, said Kim DeVallance Caron, Enterprise Holdings’ product development director and CIECA’s vice-chair.
With worldwide headquarters in St. Louis, MO, the company owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands and operates in more than 90 countries. Combined, Enterprise Holdings and its affiliate Enterprise Fleet Management manage more than 2 million vehicles.
Enterprise was one of the 13 companies that helped support and found CIECA 25 years ago and has remained active in the organization since.
“Part of CIECA’s vision is to find a way for everyone in the industry to communicate, independent of the platform or software used by their business,” said DeVallance Caron. “As a significant part of the transportation ecosystem, we communicate with customers, collision centers and insurance companies and feel it is important to bring the industry together to form common standards regarding the sharing of information and management of data. This ultimately serves our customers in the best way possible.”
She added that the CIECA collaboration is so important because it’s applicable to everyone and benefits their respective businesses while helping identify upcoming trends and quickly develop new solutions among a common standard to industry challenges.
