The partnership expands Zubie’s reach to include dealer loaner programs, provides holistic on and off-lot tracking capability
Zubie, a leading connected-car platform and telematics data insights provider, announced a new integration partnership with AutoMap, the leading inventory tracking and audit solution for dealerships to launch its new product, AutoMap Pro™, which will add the capability of off-lot tracking for dealership loaner fleets.
Currently, the AutoMap system provides dealerships with the means to track their inventory using a Bluetooth-based solution, great for flooring audits, vehicle movement across departments, and now can alert the dealership to recall alerts with the most comprehensive system available. The addition of Zubie’s telematics capabilities extends the reach of dealers to track their loaner vehicles when they leave the lot, allowing them to locate and recover vehicles quickly and efficiently. For Zubie, this partnership expands their product base beyond fleet and rental operations, into dealership loaner fleet management.
“Locating and recovering loaner vehicles is as challenging for dealership operators as it is for rental and fleet managers,” said Gary Tucker, CEO of Zubie. “We are enthusiastic about our partnership with AutoMap, giving dealership general managers a proven telematics solution to help protect their assets and optimize their business with the same success we’ve provided to rental and business fleet operators.”
AutoMap’s device installs and removes in seconds and automates tracking and reporting, eliminating human error and simplifying the logistics process of on-lot vehicle tracking for sales teams, service managers, and auditors.
“The ability to take our strong existing on-lot solution and expand it beyond the boundaries of the dealership is an exciting proposition for dealership general managers,” said Mark Sargeant, CEO of AutoMap. “With this Zubie partnership, AutoMap customers can now track their loaner cars once they leave the dealership with the same efficiency and simplicity as when they’re at the dealership.”
