Skypatrol to Showcase Defender 2.0 at the American Towman Expo

Skypatrol set to show its powerful Defender 2.0 platform to the vehicle towing industry in Baltimore at the American Towman Expo, November 21-23 at booth 1102

Skypatrol, a global leader in GPS integrated tracking solutions, announced that it is attending the American Towman Expo, at the Baltimore Convention Center, in Maryland. The Skypatrol team plans to show off all the tools and capabilities of Defender 2.0 Including the new DVT (Data Verification Tool) and the one click Repo tool.  Skypatrol is also recruiting sales agents from this industry to enhance its sales team to the auto dealers and finance companies to offer Defender 2.0, the #1 vehicle finance risk mitigation software platform.

Developed for the vehicle finance business, Defender 2.0 has the DVT (Data Verification Tool), a unique feature that makes it possible to verify customer data right from the platform, quickly and affordably, resulting in better lending decisions. In addition, ‘One-click Repo’ mode (patent pending) lets users securely send critical information about a vehicle’s whereabouts to the repo team along with the ability to use the Defender 2.0 Platform.  These tools give Defender 2.0 users a clear advantage when it comes to tracking and protecting their collateral.

“When you talk about technology solutions like ours with folks in the towing industry, their close ties with lenders is always a key topic. We are constantly receiving requests for us to demo the Defender 2.0 platform for their customers. Defender 2.0 just makes the whole repo process run a lot smoother, and that is in everybody’s best interest.  That’s why we think that working with towing businesses as agents makes a lot of sense.  We are looking forward to making a lot of new friends at the show,” says Robert Rubin, Skypatrol CEO.

Defender 2.0, awarded “Best Vertical Platform” at the M2M 2014 Conference, offers many ways to improve portfolio performance for its vehicle finance customers. One is the ability to send ‘payment reminders’ by email or text message.  This is an important feature that results in more on time payments and a stronger cash flow.  Always working to offer the best vehicle finance solutions, Skypatrol recently announced new Defender 2.0 capabilities: its innovative ‘Installation App’ that not only allows faster installations, but also provides the ability to test the GPS function right on site; and, its ‘Data Verification Tool (DVT)’ that helps lenders quickly and inexpensively check critical customer background information.

Skypatrol announces DVT (Data Verification Tool) a game-changing background verification report for automobile dealers & vehicle lenders

Skypatrol’s DVT allows lenders to quickly and inexpensively access critical information to help verify prospective and existing borrower information. For subprime lenders this tool can be more helpful than a traditional credit check.


Skypatrol, a global leader in GPS integrated tracking solutions, announces the introduction of their game-changing DVT (Data Verification Tool) for its Defender 2.0 users. DVT utilizes the latest technology in advanced data base lookup techniques to quickly gather and sort critical information about a prospective borrower or an existing customer.

DVT reports, designed to help Defender 2.0 users improve their lending decisions, can be used in conjunction with credit reports. In fact these DVT reports provide enough valuable data to stand on their own.  This powerful tool is integrated into Skypatrol’s award winning GPS vehicle finance platform – Defender 2.0 – giving users immediate access.

“We worked closely with our customers to design these DVT reports and capabilities.  We invested many hours to understand the needs and requirements of the independent auto dealers and vehicle lenders. Then, with the help of the best data compilers in the world, our development team built this comprehensive and reliable data verification tool. This means that our Defender 2.0 users will have a way to quickly and inexpensively verify key information and put together a comprehensive risk assessment of prospective or existing borrowers,” said Robert Rubin, Skypatrol CEO.

Skypatrol’s DVT, with three levels of reports, Basic, Comprehensive, and Expanded Verification, is more helpful than a traditional credit report when it comes to evaluating a subprime borrowers likelihood to repay a vehicle loan. Verifying data, like a steady job and a stable residence is often a more telling indicator than a FICO score.

The addition of DVT for Defender 2.0 users makes it easier and quicker for them to build high yield portfolios while at the same time reducing lending risk. Skypatrol is committed to providing its vehicle finance customers with the most innovative tools and capabilities available in the growing Internet of things (IoT) space.

Skypatrol is deploying DVT today with the latest Defender 2.0 update.  This introduction comes right on the heels of the installation app introduction and is a harbinger of things to come.

Skypatrol GPS Vehicle Installation App Makes Reliable GPS Installations Less Work

Skypatrol GPS Vehicle Installation app is the first in a series of companion applications designed to complement Skypatrol GPS tracking solutions.

With this new app a vehicle installation team is able to scan and associate various key vehicle data points such as VIN, dealer stock number, and GPS serial number.

Miami, September 2014.- Skypatrol, a global leader in GPS integrated tracking solutions, is proud to announce the launch of its GPS Vehicle Installation app today, that brings much needed automation to the GPS vehicle installation process, and removes the guess work associated with a successful GPS installation with a set of comprehensive validation tests.This app is the first in a series of companion applications designed to complement the suite of Skypatrol GPS tracking solutions.

With this GPS Vehicle Installation app Skypatrol customers will be able to eliminate most if not all of the manual data input involved in an installation by simply scanning key data points like VIN, stock number, and GPS device serial number securely into the system. The data is then transmitted to the Skypatrol platform where it is decoded and saved to the account. Once the scanned VIN number is uploaded to the platform, the Skypatrol VIN database is able to populate the customer file with comprehensive vehicle data.

“We are excited to announce that our innovative GPS Vehicle Installation app is ready for release. This past year we won the best platform award with Defender 2.0, as the best risk mitigation software serving the nonprime vehicle finance industry. Now, with this smart mobile application, we are adding huge efficiency to our package of solutions. Using this tool, our customers are going to experience a faster installation process and accurate vehicle identification data from the installers with no data input or keystrokes required. Just a scan and the data is securely imported to the customer’s platform without the data entry expense,” said Robert Rubin, Skypatrol CEO.

Skypatrol customers can use this new app to deploy installers with confidence knowing there is a robust security system in place that only allows the installer access for a limited time, further ensuring privacy and security.

For installers, this new app boosts efficiency and allows them to work more quickly without sacrificing accuracy. When a GPS is successfully installed a notification is sent through the system, easily and efficiently closing the loop.

The new Skypatrol installation app successfully completed its beta trials last month. The app was rigorously tested as an integrated component of Defender 2.0 and Protek GPS two of Skypatrol’s most advanced platforms.
