SiriusXM has announced the acquisition of Automatic Labs Inc. (Automatic), a San Francisco-based provider of connected vehicle services for consumers and enterprises.
Automatic’s data-driven platform enables vehicle owners to be safer and drive smarter. The company’s proprietary Automatic Pro and Automatic Lite connected car adapters (available at retailers and www.automatic.com) provide vehicle diagnostic alerts, emergency crash assistance, fuel monitoring, access to parking information, live vehicle location tracking and much more.
Automatic also works with insurance carriers to enable usage-based savings and teen driver coaching, and works with automotive dealers to provide tools that help manage their vehicle inventory and customer service relationships.
SiriusXM holds a unique position in the connected vehicle ecosystem, offering unparalleled audio entertainment and data services in vehicles from every major carmaker. With the acquisition of Automatic, SiriusXM’s position is further strengthened with data collection and analytical tools that will enrich key elements of the connected vehicle experience.
Automatic will continue to be based in San Francisco, and the Automatic brand, its products and services, and arrangements will continue unchanged.
