Innovative M2M Telematics Solutions Enable Automotive Dealers to Expand Their Loan Portfolios, While Reducing Associated Risk

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Spireon, the leading M2M provider of mobile resource management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions, announced today that its award-winning GoldStar GPS and LoanPlus CMS automotive collateral management platforms now offers enhanced telematics capabilities on the Sprint CDMA wireless network.

"Spireon's relationship with Sprint demonstrates our long-standing focus on providing our customers with next-generation product innovation that protects their technology investment today and into the future. We believe the Sprint CDMA technology offers greater longevity and helps shelter our customers from the 2G sunset implications of today's GSM networks," said Marc Brungger, CEO of Spireon. "Our customers will benefit from the CDMA network's faster speeds, strong network and larger bandwidth with even better access to vehicle data. With our direct partnership with Sprint, we are able to offer CDMA technology at a competitive value to our customers."

Key benefits for the automotive finance community include:

  • Faster network access and data speeds for faster vehicle locates
  • Expanded coverage and more reliable connections -- even in rural & remote areas
  • 11th Generation CDMA Talon enables more data and more insights - today and tomorrow

"Sprint is proud to bring improved wireless connectivity to Spireon and its customers," said Brian Miller, Sprint regional vice president. "Spireon customers are guaranteed ongoing network support and a much richer and interactively rewarding CDMA solution, including a path to higher speeds, if needed. This is yet another benefit of the strategic relationship recently announced by Spireon and Sprint."

"Over the past 2 years, we've been investing millions of dollars into our next generation SaaS-based M2M platform," says David Meyer, EVP of Sales and Service at Spireon. "We've already shipped nearly a million NSpire enabled Talon devices over the past 18 months; and now with the rollout of Spireon's award-winning Automotive Collateral Management Platform updated with CDMA technology, we are looking to redefine the automotive industry standards by delivering unprecedented performance, scalability, security, network coverage and services."
