"The agreement announced today expands our existing partnership and strengthens our mutual commitment to advancing technology that helps to protect Maldarizzi customers and keep them safe," said Massimo Ghenzer, president of LoJack Italia. "LoJack Connect offers the peace of mind of having an on-board 'virtual technician' to help motorists keep their vehicles in optimal condition, prevent breakdowns, and provide quick and effective support at critical moments. Our telematics and software solutions allow Maldarizzi to build long-term customer relationships and expand their business at the same time."
In the event of a crash, LoJack Connect's CrashBoxx™ feature will alert the LoJack 24/7 Command Center and identify the severity of the crash event. The Command Center operator will contact the driver, notify emergency response if life-saving support is needed, and conduct an initial assessment of the incident. If repairs are needed, Maldarizzi's BDC will contact the customer to offer mechanical assistance and detailed accident reconstruction information to expedite repairs and the insurance claims process.
The LoJack Connect App, part of LoJack's comprehensive telematics solution, allows the driver to track the car's location, monitor battery levels, view trips and review driving behavior. Maldarizzi customers can also receive notifications relating to routine or predictive maintenance and also provide notice of approaching deadlines for the payment of road tax, car insurance, financing installments, and other vehicle-related preventative maintenance.
In the event of theft, the driver can contact the LoJack 24/7 Command Center and send a photo of the theft report via a smartphone to quickly start the recovery process. If the battery is disconnected by the thief or the car is moved with the engine off, the customer will receive an alert.
