Become a RIO partner

Let us identify how together we can do more for our customers.

Your benefits as a partner at a glance

Standardised interfaces

REST-based APIs combined with our OAuth extension, specifically developed for our partners and used for authorisation and authentication purposes, simplify access for partners and users. We make life easier for you and your customers, because we transform every signal from the connected vehicles into a cross-manufacturer data format.

Collaborative marketing

Together we make a bigger impact. RIO offers its partners a variety of marketing and communications measures. We integrate our partners on our Webshop – the RIO Marketplace, where all of the services are presented and can be ordered in twelve languages. We also proudly present our partners on the RIO website and on our social media accounts.

Smart data exchange

We exchange data with our partners and use this data to directly enrich the RIO platform and our partners’ systems. Because we process and combine data in an intelligent manner, new application opportunities are created for both parties – for our partners and for RIO. Ideally, this even leads to the collaborative development of a new product!

“For idem telematics, the Internet of Transport is an important matter. That is why we didn’t hesitate in seizing the opportunity to be the first trailer telematics provider on the RIO platform. For our customers, the integration of different systems is playing an increasingly important role. Throughout our collaboration, we have come to recognise the RIO team as an incredibly competent development partner and are looking forward to new functions and joint customers.”

“RIO provides an innovative telematics concept which enables applications from different providers to be integrated into a solution tailored to the customer. In this context, TachoPlus can be used for the precise evaluation of tachograph data as per the statutory requirements. It offers the transport company a reliable and lawful means of archiving vehicle and driver data, including fine calculation, driver instruction and statistical analyses, and a way of depicting these in full. As the interfaces are fully automated, it is incredibly easy for the user to use.”
