Share Article

CRX completed a new software release at the end of May, with the goal of maintaining software quality and website usability that started a decade ago. The latest JQuery, caching and map enhancements affect the user experience.

One thing is certain in the web commerce industry; a company in a competitive field cannot sit on their hands and hope that the old website will do. In the fiercely competitive world of travel and car rentals,updating software and Web techniques is essential.    

CRX recognized the need to have a world-class website, back in 2010, when the original hard-coded site was moved to the Drupal platform, a content management system, which allows non-programmers to add useful and unique content. It took a good part of the year to integrate the CRX Revolution reservation engine with Drupal, but it was worth the effort. All steps in the reservation process were overhauled to make it better connected, and possible to move back and forward in the rental process without ever getting lost. Few people enjoy losing data or their place along the way into buying process. Making this clean is really important.

The most recent release of Revolution software continues to ensure that the stability of the online transactions is maintained through upgrade of code, libraries, and visible features, like map formats, calendars, pop-ups, confirmation messages, all of which are are part of the visual experience at the CRX website.

But this spring release is only a preview for a big "Reveal" in the summer of 2013. CRX plans to introduce a new generation of software, R 2.0. It will have the same stable core, but adds a whole new wrapper of extended functionality. While the commercial content remains top-secret today, CarRentalExpress.com is confident that it will expand consumer interest and access. Stay tuned for the Summer Show!

CRX is presently the Internet's only car rental comparison site dedicated exclusively to Local and Independent Car Rental Agencies. Most of these are agencies not found anywhere else on web travel sites. Some larger mid tier agencies offer good discounts and work on a model of owner operated local franchises. While these do have some common branding, each location may really be a mom and pop shop, where the local owner takes a lot of pride in the business. CRX welcomes these mid tier franchises too.

CarRentalExpress.com (CRX) provides thousands of impartial consumer based Renter Rated reviews, including comments, for more than 200 car rental agencies. Reviews and comments are submitted by real people who have completed rentals through our site. CRX also helps find some of the cheapest car rentals in North America, lower than major brands. Reviews allow consumers to assess costs and service to choose the best car rental deal.
