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.

"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."
