22 May 2017, Melbourne Australia: Connexion Media Limited (ASX:CXZ), an innovator in the connected car market, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its contract with General Motors to launch a customised Commercial Link telematics solution to Canada and Mexico. The service will be an embedded hardware solution that links to the software platform that powers Commercial Link.
Under the agreement, General Motors is to pay for all customisation work undertaken between the parties, as well as paying SaaS subscription revenue to Connexion. The service is planned to launch in late 2017.
The customised Commercial Link telematics solution will help vehicle fleet owners run their businesses with maximum efficiency. The new customised Commercial Link telematics solution will be promoted by GM to large fleet and small business vehicle owners across Canada and Mexico.
GM’s Commercial Link tracks a range of real-time and historical data, including vehicle fuel consumption, location and distance travelled. The solution will also provide engine performance and battery life data to fleet owners, as well as safety and security features that are particularly crucial for businesses in both Canada and Mexico. Further information about GM Commercial Link can be found at www.gmcommerciallink.com.
The expansion of Connexion’s contract with GM to develop these customised Commercial Link telematics solutions provides strong validation of the technical capabilities of the Company’s offering. The language localisation for Canada and Mexico means the service will now be available in Spanish and French, thereby increasing the addressable market of the product.
The Company is not able to disclose further details at this stage as they are considered commercially sensitive.
George Parthimos, Executive Chairman of Connexion Media, said:
“Expanding our agreement to develop a customised Commercial Link telematics solution for GM to launch in Canada and Mexico is a great opportunity for Connexion. It demonstrates strong validation of the Company’s innovative connected car solutions from a leading and global automaker.”
