Airbiquity has just announced the addition of two premium content providers, Reuters and Yelp, to its Choreo cloud-based connected car services delivery platform. The move means that both Reuters, the multimedia news provider, and Yelp, the company connecting consumers with local businesses, will now be made available to customers deploying the Driver Experience infotainment delivery offering.
As with other applications which have recently been integrated into the Choreo platform, both the Reuters and Yelp apps will feature tight integration between the application services of the content providers and prevailing smartphone technologies, including support for wireless Bluetooth hands-free calling and native vehicle navigation system integration.
“Both Reuters and Yelp are recognized as best-in-class within their respective content categories. With these new additions, Airbiquity enhances our ability to offer automotive manufacturers the deepest selection of content from industry leaders in multiple categories,” said David Jumpa, Chief Revenue Officer at Airbiquity.
Reuters has 2,600 journalists in nearly 200 locations around the globe who deliver international and national news coverage via Thomson Reuters desktops, the world’s media organizations and directly to consumers on Reuters.com.
Yelp inc. was founded in San Francisco in July 2004 with the aim of connecting people with local businesses. Since then, Yelp communities have taken root in major metropolitan areas across 28 countries. Yelp had a monthly average of approximately 138 million unique visitors in the second quarter of 2014 and, by the end of the same quarter, Yelpers had written approximately 61 million local reviews, making Yelp the leading local guide for real word-of-mouth reviews of local business services.
