LAS VEGAS—Goodyear is keeping busy at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show.
At the big trade show this week in Las Vegas, the Akron-based tire maker unveiled AndGo, which it described in a news release as "a seamless vehicle servicing platform that combines predictive software and a trusted, national service network to enable consumer fleets to be ready to go when they are needed."
It's not just aimed at tire service. Goodyear said AndGo is designed to enable "full vehicle readiness, helping consumer fleets boost their performance. Through monitoring of service needs and quick and easy scheduling, AndGo activates Goodyear's vast service network for convenient scheduling to reduce downtime." AndGo users "will benefit from continuous care through routine inspections and tire monitoring leveraging Goodyear's intelligent tires," the company said.
The launch of AndGo comes as Goodyear also used the high-profile platform of CES to unveil the formation of a venture capital fund, Goodyear Ventures, with $100 million targeted for new investments in mobility initiatives over the next 10 years.
Goodyear said AndGo is available "in select U.S. markets," though it did not identify them. The platform, the tire maker added, "will expand to additional markets in mid-2020."
