WirelessCar awarded BMW European telematics contract

This prestigious contract will ultimately connect all newly produced vehicles on these markets from June 2010 and forward and also include a migration path for all legacy vehicles currently operating in the marketplace. Services will be available on all models for a period of up to four years.

Basic services include:

  • An automatic and manual emergency call
  • A breakdown or roadside assistance call
  • An up-to-date traffic information function
  • An operator-supported information or concierge service, which offers the driver a wide range of local information and data.
  • A feature for sending geo-coded information (e.g. a Point-Of-Interest, POI) to the car

Over the past years, WirelessCar has created a strong relationship with BMW as their Telematics Service Provider in Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Australia. Also, over the past year, WirelessCar has been co-developing the Next Generation Telematics Protocol for use on its next generation solution.

These two points, along with the ability of WirelessCar to be a global provider, helped secure the contract. WirelessCar will be working with a third party provider as a Call Centre partner to deliver services.

WirelessCar is asponsor at Telematics Update's flagshipconference,Telematics Detroit 2009, andMartin Rosell, WirelessCar's managing director, will host an exclusive workshopat the event.
