October 1, 2019, Bloomington, MN – Zubie, a leading connected-car platform and telematics data insights provider, today announced a partnership with Collateral Consultants, the nationwide expert in locating overdue and stolen rental vehicles, to provide asset recovery services to Zubie customers.
Collateral Consultants services will be seamlessly integrated into Zubie’s Location Link feature, which enables rental fleet managers to easily share an email link that connects to the real-time map view of a specific vehicle for a defined period of time.
“Vehicle theft is a major problem for rental fleet managers, so re-acquiring that asset is a cost saving measure that our customers will greatly benefit from,” said Gary Tucker, CEO of Zubie. “Our partnership with Collateral Consultants gives rental fleet managers the power to facilitate the location and recovery of that vehicle in a timely manner through Location Link and improve the profitability of their business.”
Staffed with retired law enforcement members, Collateral Consultants is the largest rental asset recovery network in the country, leveraging relationships with local, state, and federal agencies. The company bridges the gap between the reporting of a stolen rental vehicle, with an asset recovery rate of 85%.
“Too often, by the time a vehicle is reported stolen and entered into the national database, law enforcement doesn’t have the time or manpower to track down these cars,” said Kevin Carter, President of Collateral Consultants. “Our partnership with Zubie brings together the power of their real-time location technology with our highly successful loss prevention service.”
Since 2012, Zubie’s end-to-end connected-car technology has delivered real-time information about vehicles and drivers in an easy-to-use format to help businesses manage and optimize their fleets. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Zubie was the winner of the “2015 Best Insurance Telematics Product” award from TU Automotive, and the 2016 Tech CARS award for “Best OBDII Device with Software and Services” from Auto Connected Car.
