Aeris to Help Auto Companies Upgrade Connected cars

By Ken Briodagh

Aeris, a provider for the Internet of Things (IoT), recently announced the launch of the Aeris Mobility Suite, which is designed to enable automotive OEMs to deploy connected vehicle programs in a fraction of the time.

For automotive OEMs, connected vehicle programs are fast becoming a baseline requirement to compete for customer loyalty as electric, autonomous, and shared mobility models take hold. But as connected vehicle programs mature, Aeris says it has seen many OEMs are finding themselves limited by first-generation IoT software infrastructure that is both cumbersome to work with and incapable of supporting revenue-generating use cases that consumers demand, such as over-the-air feature upgrades, vehicle sharing, and on-demand services like repairs and refueling.

Aeris’ new suite reportedly is cloud-agnostic and built specifically with the goal of helping its automotive OEM customers address these issues.

The company says that a new customer can expect a complete, working system to be delivered in under six months, which reportedly is enabled by APIs that support each component of the suite and over 200 pre-defined vehicle lifecycle and supply chain business processes, including CRM and payments, which facilitate implementation in each OEM’s operating environment. In the release, Aeris also said it can deliver less than 3-second response times, and ensure military-grade security at network, transportation, and application levels, including two-factor authentication.

“Aeris has deep experience supporting automakers 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 GM, Automotive, 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.”
