Introducing Pocket Drive by Assurant
The Global Automotive business of Assurant has piloted a launch of Pocket Drive by Assurant, a connected device that enables dealers and their customers to benefit from the vehicle’s data and mobile connectivity.
Pocket Drive plugs into a vehicle’s OBD-II port, collects insights and communicates them via a mobile app. A dealer version allows owners to modernize their operations and create a more streamlined customer experience. A consumer-based version offers customers a safer, simpler and smarter way to drive.
Dealers can sell Pocket Drive as a standalone product or enhancement to a service contract or prepaid maintenance plan. They also can increase visits to the service center through the app’s click-to-call button that pops up in response to proactive maintenance alerts, diagnostic trouble code warnings, recalls and optional promotional offerings.
Pocket Drive provides real-time alerts of vehicle health issues and incidents, roadside assistance, an optional wi-fi hotspot, maintenance reminders, a digital box for storing records and receipts, vehicle tracking and monitoring of driver behavior.
Bottom Line: No sound. No quality.
