Wheelbase, an RV rental cloud-based software, announced it is now offering its services in the U.K, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. According to a press release, the RV fleet management software’s plans for expansion are driven in part by Wheelbase’s parent company and peer-to-peer RV rental platform Outdoorsy’s recent Series C $75 million in raised funding.
The funding has allowed Wheelbase to extend its software availability into new markets with strong camping and caravan cultures, hiring localized support, improved payment processing, management tools, real-time GPS tracking, and new services to make scaling an RV rental business faster and easier.
Currently, Wheelbase software is being used by over 600 RV and campervan companies in nine countries, with a 126% year-over-year growth in users from 2017 to 2018. Companies range in size from niche start-ups with a few assets to long-standing established dealers with well over 100 units.
“Wheelbase has not only streamlined how we run our business, but it has also exponentially increased our profitability. We’re now welcoming new customers from around the globe, communicating with them quickly and efficiently, thanks to Wheelbase,” said Howard Wilkinson, rental manager of Kamper Hire in Southampton, U.K.
