“It is important that we take every measure to reduce person-to-person contact at every Ryder location while maintaining our high customer service level that our customers have come to expect,” said Aimee Schmalzle, group director of product platforms and technology for Ryder. “Our main priority, especially in today’s environment, is to continually innovate to keep our customers and employees safe. We’re making widespread adoption of our touchless check-in easy and accessible for all drivers. Not only will RyderGyde’s new touchless feature ensure social distancing practices, but it should also improve efficiency across our fleet management operations.”
RyderGyde provides fleet management customers with a secure way to check-in to U.S. shops during the day or at night. When drivers arrive to a Ryder location, they can use their mobile phone camera to scan a QR code to check-in a vehicle. Drivers will simply need to answer a few questions from the safety and convenience of their phone and then drop the keys off at a key drop box. The new process greatly reduces the amount of interaction previously needed to check-in a vehicle.
