SEATTLE, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Airbiquity®, a global leader in connected vehicle services, today announced it has been named a TU-Automotive Awards 2017 finalist in the Best Telematics Product or Service category for its over-the-air (OTA) Software & Data Management offering. If chosen, this will be the fourth time Airbiquity has won a TU-Automotive award with previous wins in the Best Telematics Service Provider, Best Telematics Solution, and Best Automotive Application categories.
Airbiquity's Software & Data Management offering is an industry leading solution for securely orchestrating and automating OTA software update and data management campaigns for connected vehicles. OTA solutions are projected to provide significant financial value to the automotive industry, with global cost expected to increase from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion in 2022, according to IHS. Additional benefits of this technology include faster recall compliance and cybersecurity response times, eliminating the need for consumers to bring vehicles to dealers for software updates, and the enablement of vehicle performance and feature enhancements post-purchase.
"The past 18 months have been packed with rapid product development, proof-of-concept launches, and meetings with automotive customers around the world," said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Airbiquity. "Software & Data Management is a best-in-class product at the right time, and we're excited to see that recognized by the TU-Automotive Awards selection committee."

Finalists are selected by a panel of expert judges within 10 categories covering all aspects of the connected car industry from best telematics service provider to disruptive new areas like smart mobility, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and cybersecurity.
