ATLANTA, March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Clutch Technologies, the pioneer of subscription and mobility services software for the automotive industry, today announced a new integration with data analytics platform provider Synaptiv to help Jaguar Land Rover dealers simplify and more efficiently manage their loaner fleets and fixed operations business.
Digitizing the loaner car experience is a growing trend among dealers focused on increasing margin in the most profitable part of their business – fixed operations. Clutch is helping dealers in this effort to manage their loaner fleets by eliminating the need for third-party telematics devices. The integration with Synaptiv is one of many technology suppliers Clutch is working with as part of its goal to better streamline the activation of connected cars, while driving down dealer costs to operate their fleets.
Through the Synaptiv collaboration and Clutch's industry-leading collaborations with Xtime and TSD, the vision of a more intelligent vehicle assignment platform is realized, offering a seamless scheduling experience for consumers and a simplified fleet management process for dealers.
"Together with Synaptiv, and in combination with Xtime and TSD, Clutch is delivering intelligent technology that addresses all phases of the value chain, giving dealers what they have been asking for to streamline the most profitable part of their business," said Adam Carley, vice president of Clutch Technologies. "While this integration marks another milestone in Clutch's overall strategy to help dealers run a more efficient fixed ops business in the connected car future, we've only just begun."
"Synaptiv is focused on delivering next-generation solutions for the automotive marketplace," said Matt Lewis, CEO of Synaptiv.
