Already today we use digital helpers like the smartphone as a matter of course to inform us privately, but also in business. In the past decade, the concept of telematics has established itself with the "networking of vehicles" and the services created in this environment is as much a part of the world of commercial vehicles as the Internet is part of the smartphone. With our two product groups LOSTnFOUND® and fleet.tech®, we are constantly developing new solutions and functions together with our customers and actively participating in this process. With our products, the digitization and networking of direct and peripheral information carriers is becoming ever simpler and more cost-efficient. This has resulted in a considerable product portfolio that is now in daily use by many thousands of customers from a wide range of industries and company sizes in more than 20 countries.
However, next to mobile devices and sensors, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the artificial Intelligence will change the world much more radically in the future than we know it today. These technologies are significantly changing the way we expect to work with colleagues and business partners, and fundamentally changing the way we do business. The ingredients on which this technology is based - the convergence of connectivity, the automation and efficiency of the corresponding processes and the consistently open system architecture - have been the basis of our service DNA since the company was founded around 10 years ago.
Accordingly, it goes without saying that we are committed establishing a universal standard telematics interface. Following this logic, we have been playing an active role as a founding member in the creation of the OpenTelematics association.
We look forward to breaking new ground together with our customers and realizing exciting projects!
