Mobile and Cloud-based Application Development

Vehicles are becoming more sophisticated every year.  What was once just a mechanical vehicle to transport a consumer from point A to B, is now becoming more like a large smart device on wheels. Changes such as advanced emergency braking capabilities, mapping technology that is equipped for autonomous driving, systems for better fuel efficiency (hybrids) and cars equipped for car as a service as a form of transportation and more are common place. Today, consumers expect more.  Automotive ecosystem providers increasingly look to provide convenience for drivers and in turn add value to their brand by offering mobile applications and connected telematics solutions. From next generation dealerships, to applications that proactively schedule maintenance to prevent failures and longer down-times, there is a clear shift of demand towards innovative car services.

“My automaker provides an application that allows me to stay connected to them, and my vehicle all the time. They provide tools to manage my vehicle and some conveniences to help them take care of my vehicle. The application has information on specials schemes for the display in my car, coupons, service history, roadside assistance, service-appointment scheduling, an owner’s manual, license plate, insurance information, social media integration and much more.  I love this new relationship and how my automaker is so responsive to my needs.”
