TrueSpot Brings Real-Time Vehicle Mapping to NADA

TrueSpot’s platform is comprised of proprietary wireless locator tags that can be placed inside vehicles and attached to keys and other assets.

TrueSpot, a new Internet of Things (IoT) asset location platform developer is showcasing its Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) platform at NADA 2020. A new trio of technologies enable real-time mapping of vehicles, keys and other assets, enhanced digitized reconditioning and simplified service loaner and VIP Demo management with purpose built OBDII.

Founded by a group of IT and auto dealer insiders, TrueSpot was created to solve one of today’s biggest challenges for auto dealers — asset and operations management. U.S. retail auto dealers spend more than $325 million per year to replace lost keys and lose another $3 billion a year in inefficiency and wasted time tracking down assets. This can translate into tens of thousands of dollars of losses for single dealership owners, not to mention fueling an environment and reputation of frustrated, waiting customers, walkaways and lost revenue.

TrueSpot technology dramatically reduces or eliminates these costs, while adding new capabilities that boost productivity and sales performance. These technologies integrate dealer back-office data to streamline workflows, Lot Management 360 (digitizing the dealership) and their newest product, TrueRecon, geo-validates reconditioning activities, basically putting tedious and time-consuming recon activities on “autopilot.”

Additionally, new complementary cellular IOT solutions better manage and track usage of service loaner or rental cars via purpose-built OBDII modules specifically designed to offer anywhere, anytime tracking. TrueSpot’s offers this technology at a fraction of the cost of competing OBDII services, without the burden of an F&I service sales.

“For us, NADA is all about tech innovation for auto dealers,” said Mike Hanna, CEO and founder of TrueSpot. “Really, for our industry’s first time, technology is becoming highly specialized, and we intend to be on the forefront of this wave of transformation. Old-school processes of yesterday are becoming obsolete. Moving forward, most consumer transactions will be done online, and consumer convenience and operational efficiency will become the dominate success factors for dealers.”

TrueSpot’s platform is comprised of proprietary wireless locator tags that can be placed inside vehicles and attached to keys and other assets. Combined with a low-powered enterprise campus network and applications for Apple and Android wireless devices, dealerships can instantly locate these assets — to within inches — and identify their recon status. Unlike competitive asset-tracking technologies, TrueSpot location tags can be easily transferred and recycled to track other assets/vehicles on the lot.
