the ZipCar onboard system is expensive and very costly to maintain. The IDSY system is 1/2 the cost and almost nothing to install. Are the increased ZIP costs adding to Avis fleet costs?
Why hasn't Avis gone with the IDSY system instead on all their cars? They have it on 30,000 cars. Why not the rest?
did you take 5 seconds and read the headlines or any of the posts?
what are you the head of Avis IT or something?

Benzinga By Kevin Riley
CRT on Tuesday initiated coverage on ORBCOMM Inc (NASDAQ: ORBC) with a Buy rating and $9 price target.
Analysts Brian Ruttenbur and Corey Allen felt that ORBCOMM is “extremely well-positioned for growth” in the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market as a leading provider with “the largest market share based on number of subscribers.”
According to CRT, M2M “refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices. This system of technologies can provide automated data collection and transmission, such as tracking and monitoring the status of vehicles, containers, or ships including the monitoring of important information such as location, temperature, or inventory status.”
Drivers of the M2M market include:
1. Improved Efficiencies and ROI with a one-year or less payback.
2. Food Safety Legislation requiring food to be tracked.
3. Automatic Identification Systems for tracking cargo ships.
CRT suggested that the company’s new satellite constellation will allow for increased speed, reliability and connectivity. CRT expects that “ORBCOMM will experience solid top line growth over the next three years, with a more than 13% CAGR from 2014 through 2016.”
ORBCOMM recently traded at $5.88, up 1.2 percent.

his stocks are down. Our stocks are up. So he hides. IDSY will slip from $10 to $9 a couple of months from now and he will come out and say what morons we are. Or Avis will go from $35 to $36 and he will say what a great investment it is. He has done this countless times.
I can't wait until he downvotes this. I know he reads every post from me. It gives me great enjoyment to get under his skin time and time again.
a 15K and 16K block at the close. Someone wanted in before end of quarter
billy can't elaborate. He's too busy picking on my stocks that are up 10% since he panned them while his are down 40% in the same time period.
I would not touch this company with a ten foot pole. How can every other oil and gas company be near their highs while this has gone no where?
The IDSY system pays for itself in less than 1 year and has been piloted by Avis for over 15 years. YEARS!!! the Avis IT folks want something that will be state of the art for 10 years. Good luck with that. Yet they go out and buy ZIPCar for 5X the cost of the IDSY system
Someone at Avis needs to lose their job over this.
The Avis IT folks want a 10 year solution. 10 years!!!! They should be happy if an IT solution lasts 3 years. It pays for itself in less than 1 year. 3 years is more than paid for.
So I wanted to rent a car in August out of Seattle for 5 days. Avis and Hertz wanted $800 for an Economy car. Enterprise wanted $200. Guess who I went with?
