Bicycle brands & OEM
Consumers are increasingly opting for an electric bicycle, scooter or kickscooter. This is logical, because electric bicycles offer many advantages: they are often faster, more durable and cheaper than cars. A disadvantage is that electric bicycles are popular targets with thieves. Consumers want to protect themselves against this and GPS can help.
As a producer you can offer a unique and innovative USP by offering your e-bikes or e-scooters 'connected'; equipped with a Tracefy GPS tracker. This protects the vehicle better against theft, but such a GPS tracker has more advantages for both manufacturer and end user.
Protection against theft
By fitting e-Bikes or e-Scooters with a Tracefy GPS tracker, you offer consumers additional protection against theft, as well as the possibility of easily tracing a stolen vehicle. Vehicles fitted with the Tracefy GPS tracker are secured with geofence, a virtual lock. Via an app on the phone, the user is alerted if his vehicle is moved. Many bicycle insurance companies already give a twenty percent discount on an all-risk insurance policy for bicycles fitted with the Tracefy GPS tracker.
Reading out bike data
In addition to offering added value to end users, Tracefy's GPS tracker enables bicycle manufacturers to read out anonymous data in an online dashboard. For example, ride data to gain more insight into usage or information about the E-bike system for product improvement, warranty processing and trouble shooting.
The Tracefy-GPS system gives end users access to their vehicle (usage) data (battery status, mileage registration, routes) via the customer app. Via the app, bike manufacturers can send the end user notifications, for example for maintenance at a certain mileage.
Manufacturer, cycle shop and OEM
For manufacturers, the great advantage is that 'connected' vehicles form a live and continuous test panel. This panel generates new data every day. This provides answers to questions such as: How are the vehicles used? What is the average trip distance? How often is the vehicle used? Everything you need for targeted marketing activities and product development can be found in the Tracefy online dashboard. Valuable information such as journey times, distances and battery consumption help to target product improvement and development, and provide guidance for setting up appropriate warranty programs. In addition to a GPS connection via the Tracefy IoT unit, the tracker also has a wireless connection to the vehicle's on-board computer. This allows errors and update the software without having to take the bike back to the dealer.
