CalAmp's LoJack® Italia and Koelliker Join Forces to Connect and Protect New EV Commercial Vehicles with LoJack Technology
MILAN and IRVINE, Calif., July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a connected intelligence company helping businesses and people track, monitor and recover vital assets with real-time visibility and insights, today announced its subsidiary, LoJack® Italia, has partnered with the Koelliker Group, a leader in the import and sales of electric, connected and intelligent vehicles across Italy. Through the partnership, all new MAXUS eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9 electric native light commercial vehicles distributed in Italy by the Koelliker Group, will be pre-installed with LoJack Connect connected car intelligence and services that help maintain vehicle health and encourage better driving behaviors.
The LoJack Connect app serves as a virtual assistant by giving MAXUS eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9 drivers greater visibility into kilometers traveled, route monitoring and departure/arrival notifications on a specific location such as a corporate office or delivery location. Access to real-time alerts about the charge level of the 12-volt battery will help protect the control unit and avoid blackouts. Diagnostic alerts notify fleet managers of any mechanical failures, maintenance deadlines and tire replacement needs to prevent costly breakdowns and keep the vans in optimal running condition to improve overall vehicle safety.
The innovative Driving Style feature provides drivers with a score indicating their driving behavior based on an analysis of telematics data. These intelligent insights help drivers to develop safer driving habits, contributing to improved road safety and also helping to reduce environmental impact.
In the event of a collision, CrashBoxx® crash response services deliver real-time crash notification to loved ones and immediate assistance to the motorist from LoJack's 24/7 Security Operations Center providing support with emergency response, towing and accident statement forms. Automated incident reports document crash data on force, impact, and damage, helping to facilitate investigations and claims processing.
The LoJack partnership also provides Koelliker with a dedicated SmartDealer portal, which notifies them when customers' kilometer thresholds are exceeded, tire rotation is needed or a low battery alert goes off, allowing Koelliker to provide optimal service and support.
"MAXUS LCVs are distinguished by being tireless, reliable, technological and innovative workmates, all characteristics that have guided our choice to import and distribute them in our country. Those who buy MAXUS commercial vehicles know they are choosing state-of-the-art native electric vehicles designed with safety in mind," said Luca Ronconi, CEO of Koelliker. "The mobility services developed by LoJack enhance security and safety for eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9 drivers who are on the road every day and can now count on real-time assistance at critical moments, especially in delivering in the last mile that increasingly requires ecological vehicles."
"We are excited to expand our market reach into electric commercial vehicles. Our telematics solutions will minimize downtime of these service vehicles, allowing for full operation and offering support to drivers when needed," said Maurizio Iperti, senior vice president of LoJack EMEA and managing director of LoJack Italia. "Through our partnership with Koelliker, drivers of MAXUS eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9 vans will be able to rely on LoJack's intelligent connected technology to help them work smarter and safer, while ensuring veicle protection and efficiency."
