MEDFORD, Mass., January 4, 2017 –Agero, Inc., a leading provider of vehicle and driver safety, security and information services, today announced the extension of its partnership with Subaru of America to provide enhanced connected vehicle services to Subaru Gen2 STARLINK motorists. Leveraging its core foundation rooted in telematics, Agero will broaden its existing emergency roadside assistance and travel-related services by providing Subaru customers with enhanced driver assistance, including airbag and accident scene notifications, stolen vehicle tracking, and concierge services related to various driver inquiries and points of interest.
When Subaru motorists require assistance, they can access Agero’s response team through the SUBARU STARLINK Connected Vehicle system. This system provides Subaru motorists with around-the-clock safety and security should they become involved in an accident, require emergency services or roadside assistance, have a lost or stolen vehicle, as well as offers many other services. The Gen2 enhanced connected vehicle services are expected to launch in early 2018.
“With 20 years of experience providing driver experience services, Agero is a logical choice for clients like Subaru that are interested in extending their supplier benefits and infrastructure,” said Cathy Orrico, senior vice president of client services and sales, Agero. “This capability meets a critical need as more and more automakers are looking to their roadside provider to be the most efficient single source for their connected vehicle service programs. This way, rather than one supplier taking a motorist’s call, then pushing the caller elsewhere depending on its nature, that single partner can efficiently handle everything from emergencies and roadside assistance to tracking services and inquiries.”
