LoJack Corporation is collaborating with Novatel Wireless to develop robust positioning and accuracy capabilities in the LoJack Connect for Inventory Management system. The system helps sales personnel at dealerships accurately track and actively monitor vehicle inventory across multiple lots, helping to minimize the time required in the regular dealer inventory process. Accessible via computer, tablet and mobile phone, users can verify vehicle location, access relevant vehicle information, track test drives and receive early warning alerts if a vehicle is moved from a geofenced location.

LoJack Connect for Inventory Management is powered by the Novatel Wireless 3060 OBDII solution for HSDPA/GSM/GPRS. The MT 3060 is a specialized OBD II telematics solution that offers advanced technology and a sophisticated feature set, combined with high quality and compatibility testing standards, Novatel Wireless said. With dual accelerometers, GNSS support, an open platform, and the N4A Content Cloud Management System, the MT 3060 enables LoJack to offer a reliable telematics solution to dealerships nationwide.

The system will be demonstrated in LoJack’s booth (#5058W) at the 2015 National Automotive Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Exposition. It has been piloted at dealerships such as South Florida’s Braman Motorcars, and will be available in the second quarter of this year.

[Editor’s note: Novatel Wireless has no connection with GPS/GNSS manufacturer NovAtel.  The two are separate, distinct companies.]
