Greg Geiselhart, WirelessCar’s VP Sales & Marketing: “Reaching ten million connected cars across the world is no small feat. Over the years, we have overcome both technical and commercial challenges, large and small, to deliver robust and highly reliable services to our customers. We take that wealth of experience to benefit current and potential OEMs in launching best-in-class connected car services.

“To manage over ten million vehicles across more than 100 markets, we constantly investigate new possibilities to be efficient in our deliveries,” said Jessica Nymark, COO of WirelessCar. “This covers not only utilizing new technologies, but also optimizing our way of working as well as applying the knowledge we gain from our services in operation to continuously evolve them.”
Looking ahead to 2023 and beyond, WirelessCar’s focus on technological innovation will become even more important.
“While scaling from zero to ten million vehicles we have led the industry through several technological shifts such as the adoption of public cloud, microservice architectures, modern IP communication protocols and mobile apps,” said Tomas Carlfalk, CTO of WirelessCar.
“On the journey to 100 million connected vehicles, we are already leading the way with our SaaS product offerings that enable OEMs to increase the speed of innovation of value-added, end user services.”
