Our team is going on a European tour to present Caruso and our partner ecosystem. We will be starting this November with the Iberian peninsula & two events in Portugal & Spain. Our Head of Sales, Gwenael de Calan, will be in Lisbon on Saturday 10th November to present Caruso at the 29th ANECRA convention.
ANECRA is the largest trade association in the Portuguese automotive aftermarket, with about 3,500 members, most of them being independent repair workshops. Gwen will deliver a presentation on “The connectivity of the vehicles and the future aftersales” and join an expert panel discussions on the evolution of the automotive aftermarket.
The following Thursday, November 15th, Miguel Pérez Fernández, one of our senior software developers, will be back on his home turf in Barcelona. Miguel will present Caruso to the members of the Catalonian parts distributors association at the 6th Cira Congress. This will be also the opportunity for him to share with the participants the experience that Caruso has gained collecting telematic data from various OEMs and Telematic Service providers.
Despite their relatively old car parks, Spain and Portugal, together with Italy, have been quite dynamic markets when it comes to the deployment of telematic solutions, compared with the rest of Europe. Numerous insurance companies have been successfully launching ‘Pago como conduzco’ / pay-as-you-drive offers.
Caruso partners are already offering several data sets and services covering the Iberian peninsula. We look at further growing our presence in Southern Europe with the support of the local representatives from our majority shareholder TecAlliance.
