OAKVILLE, ON, Oct. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - 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.
