Zubie enters the Brazilian market

vivo-ftZubie has announced its entry into the Brazil market, sold through Telefonica and branded as “Vivo”.

The Zubie-Vivo service will be available to Brazilian consumers from mid-2015.

The move comes after the recent announcement at the CarIT Congress in Hannover that Zubie and Telefonica would be working together on providing connected car services.

“We are delighted to continue our international expansion with our global partner Telefonica,” said Zubie CEO, Tim Kelly. “The Brazil market opportunity for connected car solutions is robust, and the combination of the local strength of Vivo along with Zubie’s cloud-based data, apps, and car device solution will be very powerful in Brazil.”

The expansion into Brazil was announced in Sao Paulo at FutureCom 2014, the largest South American conference focusing on the future of information and communication technology (ICT).

“The moment is now for the connected car and with our partnership with Zubie, Telefonica Vivo is leading in this space by bringing innovative automotive related consumer services to market,” said Roberto Piazza, Executive Director for Digital Services at Telefonica Vivo. “This initiative is one of several others guided by Telefonica Global Strategy to deploy digital solutions taking advantage of its connectivity and driving Vivo to the leadership of local M2M market.”

The connected car service will enable drivers to access their car via their mobile device – enabling them to keep up with information such as driving patterns, battery levels, fuel consumption and location of their vehicle.
