LAS VEGAS–Sionic Mobile, a cloud-based connected commerce provider, and Xevo Inc., the global leader in data-driven user experiences for the automotive industry, today announced from the CES conference they have partnered to bring major restaurant, fuel, and retail brands to the connected-car experience for multiple automotive manufacturers. For both Sionic and Xevo, this partnership accelerates initiatives in progress with General Motors, and expands an already robust merchant network of participating brands.

“Connected cars are the future of the automotive industry, and a personalized journey is the future of the automotive user experience,” said Dan Gittleman, CEO of Xevo. “We’re working with some of the largest retail brands and automobile manufacturers in the world to deliver an advanced connected car platform that seamlessly connects drivers and their vehicles to engaging infotainment and commerce services, while unlocking new revenue opportunities for our partners. Partnering with Sionic Mobile to expand the merchant network further enhances the consumer’s in-car experience.

“By combining Xevo’s strong merchant partnerships and years of automotive software expertise in vehicle applications, cloud and mobile software, machine learning, and data analysis with Sionic’s app and mobile rewards expertise, we’re able to deliver an engaging connected-car experience,” said Gittleman. “Together, we are helping merchant brands strengthen customer loyalty and increase satisfaction. Automakers can now offer people the opportunity to connect and interact with their favorite brands from the car, in a safer and more convenient way.”

Xevo provides connected car technology and automotive telematics for the world’s largest auto manufacturers, and its technology is deployed in millions of vehicles worldwide. Xevo Market, its merchant-to-driver platform, connects customers with their favorite brands by delivering highly-contextual offers through the touchscreens of their vehicles and their vehicle-branded mobile apps. Sionic Mobile’s award-winning Mobile Rewards Marketplace® is a digital loyalty co-op where brick-and-mortar merchants deliver offers, perks, and rewards to consumers, and accept their loyalty currency as cash at the point of sale, driving digital engagement between consumers and merchants and providing millions of drivers access to more nationwide retailers, restaurants, hotels, spas, and cinemas than any other program in the market today.

“Working closely with Xevo, a known leader in driver connectivity, we’re creating a simple, yet robust consumer experience that we believe will help shape the future of the automotive industry,” said Ronald Herman, CEO of Sionic Mobile. “The in-vehicle experience is evolving quickly, and consumers want the same conveniences from their infotainment systems that they can get on their smartphones. The Xevo Market platform delivers these conveniences and more. With a few simple taps or voice commands, drivers will be able to place an order at their favorite restaurant, pay for it in advance, then pick up the completed order curbside. We are thrilled to have Sionic Mobile’s merchant partners join this network, offering people the opportunity to connect with more of their favorite brands while on the go.”

ATLANTA — Sionic Mobile, a cloud-based connected commerce provider, today announced it has expanded its Advisory Board with the addition of three new members: veteran airline and travel executive, Jeff Potter; payments entrepreneur, Linda Rossetti and global electronic payments innovator, Joe Cohane.

Potter, founder and CEO of Beskapes, brings more than 30 years of experience in the travel and transportation industry including the former CEO of Frontier Airlines, CEO of Surf Air, CEO of Exclusive Resorts, and various positions with McDonnell Douglas Corporation, Pacific Southwest Airlines, Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines. Under his leadership, Frontier Airlines emerged as one of America’s most successful low-cost carriers.

Rossetti, founder and president of Bluestone Payments, is a well-known payments expert, consulting with payments companies and the investment community on numerous strategic opportunities. Prior to establishing Bluestone, she served as the president of third party relationships and the senior vice president of strategic initiatives for Global Payments (NYSE: GPN) and was a founding executive of NOVA (now Elavon). Throughout her payments career, Rossetti has held various sales and management roles, building organizations to create strategic partnerships with clients including financial institutions, national merchants, independent sales organizations and integrated payments providers.

Cohane, partner at Relevant Payment Consulting, brings more than 32 years of international experience in the Electronic Payment Industry with unique knowledge of both the card issuing and merchant acquiring business lines. He played a key role in the development of three successful start-up companies creating valuations in excess of $2.5 billion and was the founder of Veracity Payment Solutions (Vanco) which was recognized as one of the top 50 merchant acquiring companies in North America. Additionally, he has held senior management positions in global processing firms including Citibank, Global Payments, Elavon, U.S. Bancorp and Vanco Payment Solutions.

“Having a strong and engaged advisory board is paramount to Sionic Mobile’s continued growth,” Herman explained. “Jeff’s proven success in the airline industry will be invaluable, as we expand even further into the hospitality and travel industry. And, of course, payments continue to have a vital role in the evolution of Sionic Mobile’s connected commerce platform. Having the unique industry insight and expertise of two widely respected payments executives like Linda and Joe positions the company for explosive growth and ensures we continue to develop and deploy technology that disrupts the current market. I am proud to welcome our newest Advisory Board members and look forward to working with each of them in the coming weeks and months.”

Potter, Rossetti and Cohane will be advising Sionic Mobile Board members Ronald Herman; William E. Clift (retired), CTO, Cingular Wireless; Bill Lamar, CMO (retired), McDonald’s USA; Robert G. Hisaoka, principal, RRR LLC and Patrick Gahan, principal, Alder Asset Management and co-founder Enduring Hearts.
