Allstate Roadside Services, a provider of roadside assistance in the USA, and Airbiquity Inc., a provider of global connected vehicle services, have announced their collaborative efforts to create integrated connected vehicle systems for automotive manufacturers.
The jointly-developed services are intended to provide a comprehensive platform for connected services in safety, roadside assistance, insurance and advanced infotainment for automotive manufacturers throughout the Americas. With an integrated solution, car owners would benefit from tailored services from a menu of options that enhance the driving experience and seamlessly integrate the vehicle into the consumer’s connected lifestyle. From remote door unlock and find my car, to breakdown and emergency roadside services, Allstate and Airbiquity will provide a range of service options for automotive manufacturers.
“Airbiquity is proud to be a core component in the technological sophistication of so many vehicles and their connected systems over the years,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, president and CEO for Airbiquity. “Our collaboration with Allstate represents an essential maturation of the supplier ecosystem for automotive manufacturers. Our integrated capabilities could provide nearly every connected vehicle service possible. With pre-connected platforms and integrated processes, joining forces enables us to bring service assurance to a rapidly evolving connected vehicle market.”
“When drivers are in their vehicles, they are not just on the road. They are connected to a range of services, which we have provided for many years,” said Anthony M. Royer, president, Allstate Roadside Services. “The services needed by drivers are expanding rapidly, powered by smartphones, location services, and clouds. Expanding our relationship with Airbiquity shows that Allstate is preparing for all service requirements from our automotive customers.”
Airbiquity and Allstate’s integrated services will be presented to automotive manufacturers privately and be generally available by the end of year.
