With Platform Embedded In 25M Vehicles, Xevo’s Putting Pedal Down On Connected Commerce
The race is on to reduce commerce and payments friction in the fast growing world of connected vehicles. Automotive manufacturers, payments players and other digitally-focused firms are experimenting and competing to build, deploy and win driver loyalty from the software platforms vital to the new, emerging world of cars and trucks.
Among the participants in that race is Xevo, an automotive software supplier whose technology is already deployed in some 25 million vehicles worldwide, including such brands as Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac and Buick. In a recent discussion with PYMNTS’ Karen Webster, Xevo CEO Dan Gittleman talks about the path his company has taken, and what’s coming next for drivers.
The time is right for companies seeking market share in the connected vehicle market to establish relationships with other players and start winning over drivers in time for even more development.
