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!

Five steps to a partnership with RIO

Step 1: Fill in the form for the interface request.

Step 2: We will process your request as soon as possible and send you an offer.

Step 3: Once you have accepted the offer, you will receive the specifications for the interfaces and access data to the fleet of our first collaborative customer.

RIO obtains the declaration of consent from our collaborative customers for use of their data.

Step 4: Next you simply integrate the interfaces into your system. You can now successfully call up the first customer data sets.

Step 5: After integrating your first customers, you will be listed as a partner on the Marketplace.

As a RIO partner you will be able to tap into new customer segments and network with other specialist companies.

“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.”

Richard Faust, Founder of Softproject AG TachoPlus
