CAWA: A Telematics Whitepaper Developed by the Aftermarket
Probably the most important issue in the automotive industry today, telematics, is something you need to understand. See the enclosed "white-paper" (here) which describes telematic systems and the possibilities with the data derived from this system. You should also know that CAWA and the Auto Care Association have developed a "white-board" video that explains telematics in its simplest form (and was financially sponsored by Vantage Marketing Global, Inc.)

Also, don't forget that ASCCA has created the ASCCA Telematics Guiding Principles flyer to share with members and customers.
