European Business Solutions BV (EBS), a Netherlands’ tech firm have developed a unique device in the automotive market, which transports real in-car data information. With this information EBS provides its customers with real-time dynamic in-car data for solutions such as driver behaviour, fleet owner and lease market solutions. EBS needed a mobile solution to connect its in-car data devices – being quick to install and with consistent pricing. With global expansion planned, it needed a partner capable of serving markets worldwide and advising on business strategy.
The Vodafone Global M2M Platform provides EBS with an international solution. It ensures price consistency, global coverage and the means to roll-out quickly. From a trial of 300 in late 2013, EBS hopes to reach 50,000 SIMs. Vodafone also plan to sell the EBS solution through its own sales channels.
Vodafone provides practical advice about solutions in the market and introductions to useful third party suppliers through its M2M network. We’re also working on a joint approach to a leasing firm in the Netherlands; the future is bright. Hielke Ytsma, Co-founder, European Business Solutions
