Volvo Cars becomes the first automotive manufacturer in Brazil to launch an embedded telematics program, Volvo OnCall, with WirelessCar as the Service Provider. The announcement was made at the Sao Paulo Auto Show last week.
Volvo OnCall will be available from December 1st and be free for the first two years. The service will include automatic crash notification, breakdown notification and remote services such as door lock/unlock.
Brazil will be the 15th country where Volvo On Call is available but the first country outside of Europe.
The service will also address any future regulatory demands for tracking and immobilization should they come to fruition.
WirelessCar is the only certified service provider in Brazil to offer embedded End-to-End services that includes a call center and GPRS telecommunication link and services.
Possible services over and above the required tracking and immobilization include safety and security, remote services, remote diagnostics and mobile applications.
