Improving the Business Case for New Connected Car Services

Monetizing Connected Cars

Driven by the near ubiquity of high bandwidth cellular networks and the availability of constantly connected devices, many automakers and service providers are leveraging infotainment, telematics and advanced navigation services to help attract new customers.

Driven by consumer demand to always be connected, many automakers are leveraging connected car services to establish a recurring relationship with their customers that goes beyond the initial point of sale of the vehicle.

For service providers, leveraging their core asset capabilities in terms of rating, charging and recurring billing closely matches the requirements of the emerging connected car business models.

With LogiSense’s highly scalable billing solution, EngageIP, any business focusing on the world of Connected Cars has the opportunity to integrate EngageIP into their back-office to automate billing for the data-driven connected world.

Meeting Customer Expectations

Supporting these new services will require a shift from simple, flat subscription-based business models to more sophisticated ones. The consumer will be looking for simple pricing models that represent the value-driven service.

This includes offering:

  • Trial services for a certain amount of time or usage before making a purchase decision 
  • Freemium solutions where the basic service is provided at no cost, with the option to purchase additional functionality 
  • One time charges for single services that sit on top of an existing subscription 
  • Cross subsidy billing options where the increased revenue of the services offsets the cost of service activation and delivery
