Enterprise makes booking platform more accessible

Enterprise is upgrading its booking and compliance management platform, Enterprise Travel Direct (ETD).

Two major upgrades are already in place and others are set to follow this year. 

The platform is now fully compliant with the WCAG 2.1 AA accreditation for online accessibility for people with disabilities.

This means it now includes text alternatives for non-text content, functionality for input devices other than keyboards and easier site navigation.  It works with screen readers for colour blind drivers and is more accessible for organisations that use rental booking teams.

ETD is also now mobile-responsive, allowing renters to locate and book nearby available rental or car club vehicles through the platform on their mobile device. 

Ryan Bushell, Head of Public Sector at Enterprise, said: “We’re seeing a real change in how employees are booking their business travel and policy compliance is more important than ever. ETD has become the de facto choice for organisations wanting to control ad hoc employee travel and migrate workers to safer and lower-emission vehicles.

“These new upgrades are helping customers who want the platform to be more functional and accessible because they love it. It’s now on mobiles so people can swiftly book on the go and employees with disabilities can use it as easily as anyone else. ETD has become hugely popular and we’re investing to be sure it has all the functionality businesses want.”

Already in the UK and Germany, the platform is currently being rolled out to customers in France and Spain.

Enterprise said the number of rental transactions carried out through the platform has doubled over the past two years.
