Spireon's M2M Automotive Platforms Deployed in 1.5 Million Cars, Drives Division Revenue to Record $102 Million

Platform Continues to Lead Market for Automotive Finance Solutions

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- Spireon, the leading M2M provider of mobile resource management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions used by companies to maximize their mobile assets and workforce, announced today that its Automotive Solutions Group reached $102 million in revenue and is actively deployed in 1.5 million vehicles within the automotive finance industry.

Spireon also announced that it has deployed over 800,000 units of its Talon GPS tracking device since its introduction a little over a year ago with record-breaking units shipped in January 2014. The Talon deploys Spireon's patented automotive asset recovery process that underpins all the company's information platforms.

Spireon's SaaS-based Automotive Collateral Management Platform is designed to mitigate risk in subprime lending for Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH) dealerships and lenders. Spireon offers a range of flexible packages for dealers and automotive lenders to grow with their business, ranging from a simple vehicle locate product to a robust, comprehensive offering. Spireon was also recently recognized as an "A-List in M2M Award" recipient by market research firm Compass Intelligence, which recognized its Automotive Collateral Management Platform as "Best Platform" in the M2M category during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Spireon's record revenue growth and extensive product deployment and usage are attributable to the company's innovation, knowledge of and attention to the needs of the automotive dealership market.

"We have always been focused on what's in the best interest of automotive dealers and lenders," said Marc Brungger, CEO of Spireon.

We know their world intimately, and we have the most expertise to address their needs."

"Spireon's Automotive Solutions have evolved from a big red locator button into a comprehensive collateral management tool," says David Meyer, Executive Vice President of Spireon's Automotive Solutions Group. "Dealerships and Finance companies don't just want to shut cars off and get them back -- they want to manage the process more effectively with information and tools. Our products not only help dealers and lenders mitigate risks, they also enable them to offer even more value add-on services."

Spireon's Automotive Collateral Management Platform provides lenders with an intuitive, web based application that includes rich features such as:

  • Location and shutoff
  • Interactive, sophisticated mapping
  • Comprehensive and customizable reports
  • Data security and access features
  • Customizable geozones
