Data protection has the highest priority for us. …

… Our customers decide for themselves which data we, as provider, have access to. Therefore, the use of this data is explicitly regulated in the contract between the customer and us.”

History

Our journey. Always moving forward.

Started as an internal project within the Mercedes-Benz Group, we now develop digital data-based products ourselves as an independent subsidiary. In the meantime, we have become an integral part of Mercedes-Benz AG as sales and operations unit for commercial data products.

2016

Launch

Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services GmbH emerges from a group project about commercial connectivity, vehicle data and telematics - and is eventually established as a 100% subsidiary.

Hello team

The first 8 employees start at Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services GmbH. In the meantime, we have more than 50 staff.

2017

Product launch no.1

We launch our first product and welcome our first customer in Germany: "connect business" is a web-based portal in terms of fleet management. Now sales can start.

2018

Crossing borders

First European markets find their way into our country portfolio. Perfect, because our team is of course also multinational.

APIs, of course

In response to customer requests, we now also offer vehicle data from connected vehicles via a data interface (API).

EXPERT on board

We are introducing a retrofit solution to offer cross-brand fleet management: the connect business EXPERT makes GPS-based services usable.

2019

Mercedes-Benz/developers

Vehicle-related data products as well as anonymized mobility data products from Mercedes-Benz are available on this central portal – and we are part of it.

It’s a GENIUS

Our cross-brand portfolio is being expanded with a second retrofit solution for fleet vehicle data diagnostics. The name: connect business GENIUS.

2020

New APIs in the works

We use 2020 to launch the in-house development of our new API products "connect your fleet" and "connect your business", including a technical go live.

Sustainability in focus

We expand the connect business portfolio with additional services for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles to support companies in the sustainable management of their fleets.
