About Zubie

Where we're going.

The powerful future of mobility: Connect businesses, cars and drivers like never before.

Telematics. At Zubie, we believe that every company, no matter what its size, should have access to this power. Zubie has the powerful fleet management tools like 24/7 GPS tracking, vehicle health and maintenance, driver performance, and driver check-in and more at a price that works for companies large and small.

Where we've been.

Zubie was formed in 2012 as a joint venture between innovative retailer Best Buy and mobile-centric venture firm Open Air Equity Partners. Beginning with a focus on connected car applications for consumers, Zubie has since expanded into providing powerful custom telematics and data services for insurance carriers, fleets of all sizes, and automotive dealerships, service centers, and auto manufacturers.
