More than 40 journalists, industry thought leaders and analysts selected Aeris in the “A-List” category for the Fifth Annual Compass Intelligence Awards.

Aeris is a technology enabler for automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that have launched connectivity solutions for their vehicles, providing everything from an enhanced customer relationship, safety and security applications, to infotainment. To realize their business ambitions, OEMs rely on Aeris to overcome the complexity of cellular communications, the inflexibility of carrier business models and the high churn rates of end customer subscriptions.
Aeris is a valued supplier to multiple auto OEMs, including Hyundai and Honda. With Aeris, these OEMs have enhanced connectivity for the complete vehicle life cycle, from the manufacturing floor until end-of-life, changing the business dynamics of their programs.
One example of increasing the performance of an auto OEM connected vehicle program is the Aeris® Enhanced Service Selection solution. Vehicles equipped with this technology are able to optimize their cellular communications such that the tower with the strongest signal is chosen, regardless of carrier. This dramatically improves system performance, particularly in mission-critical safety applications.
