Michelin is partnering with Arity, a mobility and data analytics company founded by American insurance company The Allstate Corporation, to develop data-powered solutions for transportation departments and city authorities, with the aim of improving road safety across the USA. This partnership will combine the expertise of Michelin Driving Data to Intelligence (DDI), who are the Michelin Group’s in-house data analysis boffins, with Arity’s database. This database, which contains nearly 100 million consumer connections, is said to be the largest repository of driving behaviour data in the world.
Hankook Tire will support its product development with a new in-house creative database that offers “unique industry insights and new concepts.” The tyre maker has set up this ‘CMF LAB’ database together with Model Solution, its prototype and manufacturing solutions company. Model Solution will use the CMF LAB as a strategic springboard for new business expansion.
ContiTech specialist compounder Phoenix Compounding Technology will exhibit its latest developments and showcasing its international locations at Booth 213, Hall 12 at the Deutsche Kautschuk-Tagung 2015 (DKT; German Rubber Conference) in Nuremberg from 29 June to 2 July, 2015. The focal point of its trade showcase is compounds in various delivery forms, which all meet the current requirements of the REACH regulation. More of ContiTech’s technologies will be unveiled during the lecture programme.
Protyre, the retail division of Micheldever Tyre Services, has taken on a Single Customer View (SCV) database developed by the Purple Agency (part of Adare). Micheldever Group purportedly sells 6 million tyres a year, roughly 20 per cent of the total UK market.
According to the company, the new database will allow the company to map out a customer communications strategy that routes campaigns via the most efficient channel across email, direct mail and in store. Driving deeper data insights, the new system will also help them deliver an even better experience for their customers, helping them keep their cars safe and legal whilst reducing their motoring costs by keeping them up to speed with the latest deals and offers.
