Using multiple APIs allowing smart cars to integrate with various enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems could lead to new B2B services opportunities. Once the APIs are integrated with the ERP systems, this will enable the usage of a system of integrated apps to manage and automate services. With this in mind, Daimler and telematics service provider WirelessCar have signed a strategic IoT partnership to connect the car to the business. The automotive corporation - which includes brands like Mercedes-Benz, Smart, and Mitsubishi Fuso - said it will use WirelessCar's- a Volvo Group company - platform to extend services offerings with fleet management services. The joint venture is due to start in 2016 with services including location and vehicle follow up, as well as extensive reporting through portals and mobile apps, increasing vehicle uptime and utilisation.
