Avis Budget Group is headquartered in Parsippany, N.J. Avis Budget Group required design and development of custom training content to support the launch of their new Loyalty Program. They needed learning materials that explained the changes being made to Avis Preferred and Budget Fastbreak programs. The training content was broken down into 5 courses including online courses, face-to-face courses, and courses that needed to be delivered virtually. The challenge was to describe the new Avis & Budget programs features and customer benefits. They needed learning materials that created excitement and highlighted program benefits. Training was developed for Sales Agents, Central Billing Customer Service, Car Customer Service, Specialty Reservations, Account Services, Small Business Agents, Prefer, Field Operations-Preferred/Fastbreak, Rental Sales Associates, Managers, Agency Operators, Licensees, and the Business Activation Team.
