CES 2016: Connexion Supplies GM Vehicle Management App
Australian Internet of Things company Connexion Media has advised that General Motors will launch its Commercial Link service to its new vehicle customers this year.
Providing an update on its contract with GM, under which it is the supplier for Commercial Link, a web and app-based vehicle management software application for small businesses, Connexion has advised that the service is expected to be available for customers in the USA this year.
“Commercial Link is a simplified vehicle management system that helps keep businesses running at maximum efficiency,” Connexion states of the service. “It tracks a range of real-time and historical data, including vehicle locations, distance travelled, fuel consumption, battery life, engine performance and absolute and average speeds travelled.
“Commercial Link is the first of its kind to be designed and developed to utilise embedded in-vehicle connectivity for small fleet owners.”
A website for Commercial Link advises that iPhone and Android apps will be available.
“We are delighted to be working with General Motors to deliver Commercial Link to fleet vehicle customers in the US and believe there is an opportunity for the product to expand into other General Motors markets such as Europe and Asia,” George Parthimos, Connexion CEO, commented.
“With all cars expected to be internet connected by 2025, we are pleased to be on the forefront of embedded connectivity technologies, which are the future of the connected car and a key category of the Internet of Things.
“Through embedded technologies such as Commercial Link, it is now possible to unlock in-vehicle data and geolocation information in real-time, something that has never before been accessible by drivers and vehicle owners.”
