Tantalum Corp. announced it has partnered with AutinGO to deliver an automotive repair and maintenance services platform to wireless carriers and auto manufacturers in Europe.
Tantalum’s Connected Car platform, integrated seamlessly with the AutinGO marketplace, connects motor vehicles with a nationwide network of more than 35,000 automotive service providers in Spain, according to the companies. Future plans include expansions into Italy, France, Portugal and a number of other countries.
In just a couple of clicks from a friendly and easy-to-use interface, the Tantalum-AutinGO platform allows vehicle owners to request specific services or describe problems they experience with their vehicle, receive hassle-free competitive service pricing from multiple automotive service providers nearby, select providers that best meet their needs (e.g. distance, price, reviews) and book service appointments, according to the companies.
Vehicles with an illuminated dashboard indicator (e.g. check-engine light or oil level) or a maintenance-interval-due notice will receive notifications from the Tantalum-AutinGO solution, guiding the vehicle owner to nearby automotive service providers. In the case of a dashboard indicator, the solution will offer an explanation of the issue along with pricing information from local shops, to help users select and book a service appointment.
The platform also maintains a history of service for the vehicle.
As the Tantalum-AutinGO platform evolves it also will offer vehicle owners an easier way to pay for these services, through Tantalum’s payment and CRM platform, Pay.Car, the companies noted.
