Zubie, Inc. Key Developments

Zubie Expands Telefonica Partnership for M2M Solutions

Zubie continues to expand its partnership with one of the large telecommunications companies in the world, Telefónica. Zubie announced its entrance into the Brazil market, sold through Telefónica, branded as 'Vivo', and available to Brazilian consumers in mid-2015.

Zubie, Inc. Launches its Zubie Business Fleet Monitoring Solution for Small to Mid-Sized Businesses

Zubie, Inc. launched its Zubie Business fleet monitoring solution for small to mid-sized businesses. The company uses a smart device to plug directly into the car's On-board Diagnostics (OBD) port, and capture and deliver valuable vehicle and driving data. The newly launched fleet monitoring solution will enable businesses to leverage that technology in ways that meet the unique needs of companies that operate a small number of vehicles and drivers. The company's solution is roughly half the price of competing fleet solutions on a per car basis, with the added benefit of no installation costs or hassles. The Zubie Business solution uses its core AlwaysSmart (always on and always connected) device and a newly-designed web and tablet user experience that is tailored for fleet monitoring and analytics. It works on both iPad and Android tablets. The AlwaysSmart technology allows fully autonomous monitoring of vehicle location, activity and diagnostics, without requiring any driver interaction, and continues even while parked. Features such as engine diagnostics, vehicle maintenance, fuel cost calculations, and enhanced driver safety will deliver significant cost savings and efficiencies for customers.

Zubie Introduces Trip Tagging, a Less 'Taxing' Way to Track Business Mileage

Zubie announced its new product enhancement available through both the iTunes and Google Play apps stores. Zubie uses a smart device to plug directly into the car's On-board Diagnostics (OBD) port, and capture and deliver valuable vehicle and driving data. The new Trip Tagging feature complements existing Zubie features including location tracking, driver behaviors/patterns, vehicle health and alerts, and more. Available for all Zubie customers, Trip Tagging enables users to easily and quickly access their trips within the app and 'tag' them as business, personal or some other designation. Mileage is automatically calculated for every trip. Because Zubie caches all trips, users can go in and tag trips at their convenience -- on a daily or weekly basis, or any other frequency. Customers will receive an annual report summarizing their trip history with calculated mileage, complete with tax-filing friendly backup for deducting mileage. Additionally, Zubie automatically calculates the fuel costs associated with each trip using EPA data specific to each car type and the fuel costs in the region.
