automotive industry provide aftermarket shops with better tool and equipment
solutions. ETI surveyed automotive repair facilities to find out more
about their familiarity with TPMS and Telematics. This research was
designed to evaluate the market’s use and experiences with using TPMS and
Telematics, as well as their future business expectations in implementing TPMS
and Telematics services, and to find out what support the market needs to
implement or grow their TPMS and Telematics business. The Market Research

on. The speakers were outstanding and the information relayed was very
valuable to our members,” said Jessie Korosec, ETI Marketing Manager.
