A new software suite from Aeris is said to enable automotive manufacturers to deploy engaging and valuable connected vehicle programs in under a year – a fraction of the time it would usually take.
As connected car programs mature, many OEMs are finding themselves limited by first-generation Internet of Things software infrastructure, which is said to be both cumbersome to work with and incapable of supporting revenue-generating use cases. These include over-the-air feature upgrades, vehicle sharing, and on-demand services such as repairs and refueling.
The Aeris Mobility Suite, which the supplier claims is the only end-to-end, cloud-agnostic IoT product suite purpose-built for connected car development, specifically addresses these issues. The Suite offers modular software components needed to rapidly deploy new connected vehicle programs globally and to upgrade existing software infrastructure to improve customer engagement and retention – all within one year, and at a much lower cost.
“Aeris has deep experience supporting auto makers on the journey from unconnected product to connected service, and we’ve leveraged our real, practical know-how to build a platform that does it all,” said Raj Kanaya, CMO and general manager of automotive at Aeris.
“The Aeris Mobility Suite enables car companies to immediately deliver on their vision to expand from ‘making and selling cars’ to offering a constantly-evolving array of innovative and engaging subscription-based transportation experiences that work seamlessly in the real world.”
