BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Buying a car in Canada? Take advantage of ExpatRide's new Canadian expat auto financing program. Car financing without the need of a Canadian credit score for foreign nationals. Lease a used car in Canada or a new car. When trying to get an auto loan in Canada as a newcomer, it can be very frustrating not having a Canadian credit score (Beacon score). When it comes to expat car leasing and car loans in Canada ExpatRide has now solved this problem.
ExpatRide is expanding its successful expat program developed for the U.S. market to expatriates in Canada. The idea for ExpatRide came from the founders own expatriate experiences with moving to North America and trying to lease a car, getting a credit card, a cell phone or renting a home -- all activities that require having a local credit history to be able to be approved by most providers of these services.
With the ExpatRide program foreign nationals do not have to worry about not having a Canadian credit score. They can arrange for a car before or after they move to Canada. With ExpatRide's program there are no restrictions on when to start the process. ExpatRide provides car financing (lease and purchase) for new and used cars to individuals and businesses without a Canadian credit history. The customer can find the car themselves at any dealership in Canada or let ExpatRide find the vehicle for them.
ExpatRide's expat lease car program is tailored to expatriates moving to Canada interested in car financing in Canada. The expatriate car financing program solves the challenges that many expats face daily in Canada when it comes to being approved for a car loan or car lease in Canada. Especially after 2008, it has been very difficult for foreign nationals to obtain credit. The Government of Canada offers a free publication called "Understanding Your Credit Report and Credit Score" that explains the challenges in detail.
This "No Canadian Credit Score Program" takes into consideration the foreign individual's historic credit profile from former countries of residence. This is very different from other financial programs in Canada as they generally only give the person credit for their Canadian assets and credit history.
ExpatRide's program consists of 3 services that will make finding, financing and insuring a new vehicle an easy task:
Financing for the lease or purchase of any make or model of new or used vehicle from any Canadian dealership.
Personal Car Shopper Service (free service): According to the customer's wishes, ExpatRide and its partners will search, find and negotiate the price and check the condition on any type of vehicle nationwide. This ensures that the customer gets the best price and a vehicle in good condition (if pre-owned).
Insurance: Get competitively priced insurance for new or used cars. No Canadian driver's license needed in most provinces to set-up coverage.
ExpatRide offers flexible financing option that lets the customer get out of the agreement without hassle as the product is tailored for expatriates. The agreement can also be easily extended when the customer's assignment is extended or visa renewed.
Long term rental car program is also part of ExpatRide's services. If the customer needs a car for period shorter than 12 months, ExpatRide offers great rates on rental cars. Go to the ExpatRide website for more information.
With ExpatRide, customers can choose new or pre-owned cars from any car dealership nationwide. There are no limits to what makes or models are available: Acura, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Fisker, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Lotus, Maserati, Maybach, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Panoz, Fiat, Pontiac, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, SAAB, Scion, Smart, Subaru, Suzuki, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
ExpatRide's services are available nationwide in the following Canadian provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.
About ExpatRide: ExpatRide is a preferred supplier of many relocation and destination service companies in North America -- and a favorite amongst global mobility divisions for corporate relocation. ExpatRide is also a preferred vendor on www.24expat.com and expat resource platform.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
