Toyota Connected, a data-harvesting start-up of Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE: TM), has signed a multiyear deal with Avis Budget Group Inc.

The contract has been signed to provide 10,000 connected vehicles to Avis Car Rental in an effort to streamline the customer rental experience. The collaboration will extend from now until 2021, Automotive News has reported, citing Toyota spokeswoman, Ming-Jou Chen. The deal is a logical step in the rental group's overarching goal to have a fully connected global fleet by 2020.

According to the deal, Avis will use Toyota's mobility services platform to improve fleet management and help accelerate or automate vehicle check-in and checkout processing times.
