"We're constantly innovating in order to provide the automotive industry with a variety of diverse mobility solutions," Vince Zappa, president of Clutch Technologies, a Cox Automotive company, said in a statement.
Clutch also announced AmeriDrive, a subscription fleet operator with more than 500 vehicles on its platform, as a client. AmeriDrive is using Clutch's single-vehicle subscription technology to serve consumers and gig drivers in southern Florida; Austin, Texas; and northern Atlanta.
Clutch and Cox Automotive company Xtime, which provides scheduling software for service departments, also are teaming up to integrate Clutch fleet and service pickup and delivery software into Xtime.
Xtime dealerships will be able to schedule service appointments through Xtime Schedule and book a loaner vehicle through Clutch Fleet Sync. Dealerships and consumers also can request to have a vehicle picked up and a loaner dropped off simultaneously. Clutch handles scheduling concierges.
Cox says the combination, expected to be available in the second quarter, will help dealerships run more efficient loaner fleets and boost service revenue.
