WHG Strikes Partnership With Automotive Group RPM

Telematics provider WHG has announced a strategic partnership with automotive aftermarket supplier RPM Automotive Group.

RPM is a leading player in the Australian automotive aftermarket, comprising several businesses involved in importing, wholesaling and retailing of tyres, mechanical repairs, motorsport apparel and safety equipment, niche manufacturing and a roadside assistance service for the transport industry.

Headquartered in Melbourne, WHG is a leading supplier of telematics, IoT and tailor-made technology solutions including vehicle and asset tracking, fleet management, fatigue, and driver safety technology, with more than 35 years of experience supplying innovative tech solutions to various industries.

The companies claim the partnership will make cutting-edge technology more affordable and accessible, improving the safety and efficiency of commercial fleets nationwide.

Leveraging both companies’ strengths, the arrangement introduces a comprehensive SaaS (Software as a Service) product suite tailored for heavy commercial fleet customers – as well as a new recurring revenue stream for RPM, that is expected to become a significant contributor to the company’s future earnings over the next 36 months.

Together, RPM will offer the full WHG connected ecosystem of telematics, smart on-board mass, fatigue control, and a suite of related services designed to meet and exceed current safety and compliance standards.

WHG Director and Australia CEO Dylan Hartley says: “WHG is a market leader in the cost-effective adoption of technology across different market segments and industry verticals.

“The RPM Group was identified as a leader that plugs directly into the heart of Australian trucking. Its diversified offer in the automotive space makes RPM the perfect partner.

“This partnership will unlock benefits for fleet customers and opens a new technology-based recurring revenue stream for RPM. Our partnership with RPM is exciting, and we expect significant growth as the partnership matures.

“The average age of a truck in Australia is over 14 years and as an industry we are responsible to support operators by responding to industry safety, regulatory and compliance changes, making technology accessible and affordable as a retrofit to the Australian truck fleet.

“This partnership allows us to use our WHG trusted brand and products to enable technology adoption and uplift the safety of the fleet.”
