Pushing the Limits on Automotive IoT


MDL began in 2006 with a basic vision in mind: Utilize RFID technologies as the DNA behind building automotive specific applications designed to provide an enhanced customer experience through personalized attention, create new sales touch points between sales / service, and track key operational processes. Our automotive industry “specialists” understand your unique challenges.

In the 10 years since, we have expanded our reach and continue to innovate with our latest solutions revolving around Bluetooth beacons for vehicle location management. Our Bloodhound™ product is the industry’s first Bluetooth beacon solution to require no powered infrastructure enabling an installed solution for a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

MDL also believes strongly in the value of partnerships, and have partnered with the best providers in the industry. And with our proprietary web-based MDL software and engineered turn-key solutions, you get a company that covers the entire spectrum of product and services for using innovative communication technologies across numerous areas within the retail dealership.

Finally, we encourage you to contact us to arrange a visit of one of our working deployments and speak to our customers.You will see and hear, first-hand, the value proposition our solutions provide and what it is like to work with a partner that truly values its clients and is dedicated to outstanding customer service.

Clients routinely tell us that they have never worked with a company with such great support. Our support staff are truly responsive when you need help. Of all reported issues, 96% are resolved the same business day.

Our automated system monitoring has been engineered into our products to automatically report on site issues with any installed MDL equipment. Readers and antennas are both constantly monitored and capable of automated text messaging of issues within minutes of an encountered error.

In addition, with national technician presence, on site help is available for any equipment or installation issues. Don’t just take our word for it, ask our clients!


MDL visits your store on a periodic basis for process retraining and overall on-site support.  It’s part of our DNA to make sure we stay top of mind both with on-site and remote support.


MDL automated error reporting alerts our support center for any perceived equipment issues usually before a client is even aware


A comprehensive collection of tutorials, demo, and instructions that will leave no questions unanswered. On demand training of new store employees via webinars to keep your store up-to-speed.


Not only are we always refining our code base, but we are also adding improvements, features, and options to improve every aspect of your business.

During the execution of the project, MDL provides numerous deliverables that ensure predictable and repeatable results. Quite simply, we ‘plan the work’ and ‘work the plan’.
