DETROIT, Jan. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), provider of the leading cloud engagement platform, will demonstrate the future of the connected owner experience at the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). At the show--one of the most significant venues in the automotive industry--Covisint will:

  • demonstrate the future car-buying experience for connected owners, including: 1) how connected devices impact the process; 2) how cars will "sell themselves" and adopt future owners' personalities; 3) how used cars will be securely "wiped clean" of the previous owner's info; and, among others, 4) how owners' preferences, settings and subscriptions will follow them, even when renting another car in a different city.
  • discuss how Hyundai uses the Covisint platform to secure and integrate the company's Blue Link connected owner systems, including Google Glass, which will give 2015 Hyundai Genesis owners the ability to access important features and information about their vehicle;
  • showcase one of the most connected vehicles in movie history, the Universal Studios' "Back to the Future" DeLorean car to highlight how the future is now for OEMs when it comes to connected ownership and cloud-based capabilities in autos.

"Innovative automotive manufacturers are using the Covisint platform to deliver a secure, relevant and engaging connected owner experience," said Doug Kuiper, Covisint Chief Marketing Officer. "As the social, mobile and informational value of a car increases over time, auto OEMs have a unique opportunity to build competitive advantage through connected owner initiatives like those powered by Covisint's platform."

Covisint recently announced at the LA Auto Show a study it sponsored on how the car-buying public perceives automotive value as it relates to cloud-based, connected services. The Covisint whitepaper, titled: Automotive Connectivity: A Path for Automotive Manufacturers to Increase Loyalty, Revenue and Relevancy, showed how connected car owners are transforming and disrupting automakers' past perceptions of value.

Covisint's cloud engagement platform offers a robust, secure and proven platform for driving additional revenue and customer loyalty through connected vehicle initiatives. With Covisint, CIOs, CMOs and line-of-business leaders can deliver a unified and global connected vehicle platform that aligns with their business strategies, through a single integrated experience across the car ownership lifecycle.
