Over the past 25 years HGS has developed extensive expertise in accessing, interpreting and producing vehicle specific data covering more than 45.000 different vehicle types and approximately 90% of the European car parc for our workshop customers.

We believe that by being a part of Carmunication, we can contribute in the process of driving new business models, standards and access in this dynamic business environment of selling data. The Carmunication platform enables us to connect with likeminded people in the Independent Automotive Aftermarket and explore common business opportunities.

Carmunication members are part of a common data platform network in order to provide and receive data. Being a member allows us to find a path together with other partners to enhance data and jointly develop the market for selling data. Furthermore, this gives us an opportunity to network, find new partners and ways to create new business models in a very dynamic business environment driven by data.

Hella-Gutmann believes that the connected car is the most important development in the automotive industry. From a technological point of view, there will be direct, scalable distribution of data to different endpoints through standardized interfaces based on a common data format. From a market point of view, there will be business models with new customer groups through customized services in order to monetize individual data points or smart data services.
