Tier 1 Platform Management and Content Aggregation

As a Tier 1 supplier to many automotive OEMs, Tweddle understands not only the technical challenges but also the data integrity and supplier management burden faced by OEMs in delivering connected services. Working with OEM stakeholders, Tweddle’s technology and business teams work together to manage relationships and aggregate content and services from respected brands such as Bing, Opentable, Inrix, STATS and Movietickets.com.

Our technology platform abstracts selected supplier web APIs and transforms these interfaces into stable, automotive-ready APIs. This approach assures that API updates released by our content partners have little or no impact to production application software resident in the vehicle. Our platform’s business and transformation engines also allow OEMs to provide differentiated content offerings by vehicle platforms or trim levels.

Recognized as an industry first, Tweddle’s platform provides a mobile portal experience that couples personalized owner services with access and control of their vehicle, leveraging the best capabilities of embedded telematics with the portability of a mobile device. The application combines localized guides to restaurants, events, weather and Internet radio with remote management of vehicle features like remote POI control and vehicle locator. In addition, owners can view their owner’s manual and maintenance schedule, browse merchandise and accessory offerings and in the near future, review their service history - all from the screen of their smartphone.

Tweddle’s industry experience, coupled with its connected services platform empowers automakers and Tier 1s with the ability to deliver robust content to the driver and passengers, continually enhancing the customer’s relationships with the vehicle, the dealer and the OEM in ways never before possible.
