Date: 16 September 2016
For the second year running, Tantalum Corporation, one of Europe’s top ‘connected vehicle’ companies, has been ranked 14th
in the 2016 Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100*. The list ranks Britain’s 100 fastest-growing private technology, media and telecoms companies by sales over the latest three years.
Tantalum has connected over 1 million vehicles across insurance, fleet and high value consumers. Its best-in-class software is based on a wide suite of patents and IP, creating products with the capability to analyse real time data from over 270 data points within a vehicle.
Pay.Car is the latest development from Tantalum, which acts as the driver behind the connected car marketplace, bringing all billing and payments in to one place for businesses and consumers alike. Pay.Car users enjoy a single bill for their vehicles, giving them greater visibility and more control over their spend, as well as easing compliance requirements, all backed by integrated and automated reporting. Consumers can pay for everything in one go, in one bill, from parking to insurance, monthly in-car entertainment to pay-as-you-drive service subscriptions, including one-off repair services.
Other services from Tantalum include SaaS (Software as a Service) and EaaS (Eco-System as a Service), connecting third party services, such as roadside assistance and insurance. In addition, automotive analytics R&D supports automotive manufacturer’s strategies around services, software updates and customer satisfaction. This suite of services has been proven to deliver fuel savings of up to 22%, reduced insurance claims up to 53% and emissions by up to 20%, as well as the recovery of over £500 million in stolen vehicles.
“Tantalum is creating the next generation of go-to global ecosystem for the connected vehicle,” explains Tantalum CEO, Cédriane de Boucaud. “Tantalum has been forging key partnerships with major names such as Samsung, where we are powering their global Connect Auto launch; SAP, to power Pay.Car, and the likes of TNT, ATOS Worldline, and Smart Cities with the London’s ‘pay as you pollute’ scheme.
“Being ranked 14th
in this prestigious league table further confirms our position as a leading provider of connected vehicle products and services. We continue to play a key role in the technology community and look forward to further growth and investment in the year ahead.”
