Polesworth based Autonect launches in Maplin stores across the UK

Thursday, 21st January 2016

BILLED as the world’s best value GPS vehicle tracking solution, Polesworth-based Autonect has secured a deal to distribute its groundbreaking hardware and software product in all 220 Maplin Electronics stores.

The connected-vehicle platform, which uses a driver’s smartphone to transmit data from its plugin ProLink™ device, offers car owners the chance to score their driving performance, monitor and improve fuel consumption, and tag business mileage for easy download into tax and expense claims.

The Autonect app also allows drivers to book servicing, as well as contact breakdown and emergency services from within the app itself. They can also see at a glance what might be wrong with their vehicle, helping them to communicate more effectively with whoever they have chosen to fix it.

Autonect co-founder Anthony Shemmans says the relationship with Maplin will help to strengthen the Autonect product in its core market with servicing agents and car dealers.

Anthony told Tamworth Informed: “The more cars we have connected to the system, the better it works out for everyone. And as we’re talking with some of the country’s leading service and repair networks, everyone who buys the Autonect product from Maplin will have access to a wide range of support from some great brands.”

As an introductory offer, the Autonect package is being offered in Maplin with vouchers to spend on servicing, repairs and MOTs at any of the 330+ Halfords Autocentres around the UK.

Drivers can purchase the Autonect ProLink™ and voucher bundle in Maplin stores from the 20th January 2016, or visit the Maplin website at:
