Automile, a Swedish start-up based in Stockholm, has built a telematics platform with the Internet of Things in mind, called Automile PRO, designed to reinvent fleet management for businesses to connect with their car and driving data via a smart cellular-based OBD II device, available in 53 countries. Automile has partnered with Telit Wireless Solutions to use its Telit m2mAIR Mobile Core service to provide network connectivity and ePortal management for the Automile connected car platform.
Thanks to the flexibility of Core rate plans and the simplicity of the ePortal subscription management tools, Automile had the competitive advantage to close a deal for its connected car platform with a leading international car manufacturer valued at more than US$4 million in the first year.
The agreement follows another milestone deal closed earlier this year with leading aftermarket auto parts provider, reinforcing the offering’s value and product differentiation in the fleet management market.
Automile has been through an extended market assessment of m2m technology providers and selected Telit for the technical superiority of its m2mAIR Mobile offering, together with its understanding and flexibility in collaborating with high growth companies like Automile.
"Providing a proven and tailored-made m2m communication foundation, Telit, with its compelling m2mAIR Mobile services and deep understanding of our business DNA, has naturally positioned itself as the provider of choice for Automile," said Jens Nylander, VP and co-founder of Automile.
"We are delighted to have been chosen by Automile to make their connected car platform a strong and reliable, enterprise-grade communication platform between businesses, drivers, and their vehicles in over 53 markets, while supporting the richness of their product creativity and speed of development to make Automile the connected car platform of reference,” said Sander Mulder, global sales manager m2mAIR mobile, Telit Wireless Solutions.
