CalAmp, a telematics company, recently announced that Car Security, its LoJack licensee in Argentina, is adopting the company’s telematics technology stack, including its device portfolio, and CrashBoxx vehicle risk management services platform.

At the cornerstone of Car Security's connected car strategy is CalAmp's CrashBoxx vehicle risk management service that is designed to deliver detailed, actionable insights into crash events. The multi-tiered service improves crash incident reporting, recovery and repair by automating functions associated with vehicle damage assessment and claims processing. Car Security will offer these connected car services to insurers in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

"This expanded partnership marks a growing trend by LoJack global licensees who are adopting CalAmp telematics technology and significantly expands our market reach in Latin America. By partnering with Car Security, CalAmp is providing insurance companies the telematics tools they need to optimize their claims management processes and stay one step ahead of fraudulent claims via the most effective stolen vehicle recovery provider on the market today," said Paul Washicko, SVP and GM, SaaS business, CalAmp. "CrashBoxx and our broad telematics technology portfolio are natural enhancements to Car Security's current connected car applications and security services, which has been providing safety and security to insurers and car owners in Latin America for 20 years."

The Car Security connected car solution will provide customers with:

CalAmp's CrashBoxx vehicle risk management services, including:

Instant Crash Alerts: immediate notification of a collision along with crash severity, delivered via API, email and/or SMS
Predictive Physical Damage: In-field vehicle triage to avoid unnecessary towing and storage costs
Accident Reconstruction: Detailed analysis of a collision to facilitate the investigation

"CalAmp's robust telematics suite will allow us to continue to expand our offerings beyond our foundational stolen vehicle recovery service and deliver the most comprehensive suite of connected car solutions available today to Latin American consumers," said Carlos Mackinlay, Jr., CEO, Car Security. "Enhancing our market offerings with vehicle risk management technology will provide our extensive insurance customer base with the features they need to mitigate fraud while improving the policy holder experience."
