October, 20 2013 – Geotab announced today a strategic partnership with Navistar’s ONCOMMAND Web Service to offer a single remote diagnostic portal. Through the OnCommand Connection proprietary portal, customers can more efficiently manage their fleets through an integrated vehicle service monitoring system that connects fleets, dealers, Navistar’s Technical Service and OnCommand Repair Advocate. TheONCOMMAND Portal gets real-time vehicle information from the Geotab GO6 in-vehicle hardware device and sends the data to the ONCOMMAND web servers.
The Geotab Software Development Kit (SDK) is utilized by Navistar to send vehicle diagnostics information to the Navistar OnCommand Web Service. The Geotab In-Vehicle platform has the ability to process data from a variety of vehicle systems including the engine and transmission as well as other electronic systems tied into the vehicles electronic control unit (ECM).
With this partnership our customers will be able to react to maintenance and repair issues, which will help to keep their fleets on the road. This service will expedite repairs, and help with warranty issues while reducing downtime and roadside breakdowns.
According to Jon Shapiro, Geotab VP of Commercial Vehicles, “The newly launched partnership with Navistar will help to grow our presence in the heavy duty vehicle market and will afford our customer more “real-time” diagnostic information. This service is all about making sure that our commercial truck customers are on the road with the latest vehicle information. We are very excited to be working with the ONCOMMANDNavistar Team to provide this service to our customers and we are looking forward to expanding our relationship with Navistar.
