We played a significant part in an excellent annual event: the gathering of the huge Automotive Industry Community at the 10th CLEPA Aftermarket Conference in Brussels on March 27-28. 🇧🇪 This year’s topic was “Ability to lead in a digitalizing environment”.

After a nice get together & networking dinner at the Steigenberger Witcher’s Hotel there were very well-prepared keynotes the following day. Both days of the conference offered the participants an exclusive opportunity to meet top level management in industry and politics.

We were proud being one of the sponsors, exhibitors and speakers of the conference. Together with our friends from Continental and Schaeffler we gave insights into the future of repair workshops in a connected world: we presented our digital marketplace enabling data from connected cars to be easily shared among all players in a mobility ecosystem.

Through our platform, the telematic data collected by Continental, along with other data sources, can be easily made available to workshops in an open and standardised format. These live data can be also enriched with various other types of information, such as repair and maintenance documents from Schaeffler’s REPXPERT portal.

On day two, our Managing Director Alexander Haid took the stage to demonstrate the value of the connected mobility ecosystem. In his keynote he outlined the handling of various data sources and current challenges for automotive suppliers.

In case you did not make it Brussels we are happy to announce that Schaeffler & Continental will also present their remote diagnostic use case at our great Caruso Partner Connect Event in Cologne from June 5-6. 💙
