International Truck focuses on uptime with OnCommand Connection offerings

At the Mid-America Trucking Show, International Truck announced a number of advancements to its OnCommand Connection open architecture remote diagnostics system. OnCommand Connection works with a customers existing telematics provider, pulling diagnostic-related data to create easy-to-understand vehicle health reports. Visibility into the operational health of the vehicle empowers customers to understand the severity of vehicle issues and determine the appropriate action ultimately leading to increased uptime.

OnCommand Connection will now be available as a standard, no-charge feature on all new International trucks. In addition, fleets with International trucks or competitive vehicles, model year 2007 and newer, with partnering telematics providers, will also have the opportunity to obtain OnCommand Connection through International Truck dealers, free of charge.

“Customers currently enrolled in OnCommand Connection are experiencing real-world advantages every day with increased vehicle uptime and lower operating costs,” said Michael Cancelliere, Navistar senior vice president, global parts and customer service. “We believe, as a leader in technology integration, that we have a responsibility to make the uptime benefits of OnCommand Connection available to the entire industry.”

The company announced a credit for base model telematics hardware and two years of data service on International branded vehicles upon activation. For customers choosing to upgrade from the base telematics hardware, a retail parts program is available to offset the incremental cost to customers. This bundled offering will be available in July 2015.

“OnCommand Connection was developed on the foundation of integration and choice,” said Mike Cerilli, vice president and general manager, Navistar Connected Vehicle Business. “We’re proud to offer our customers the many benefits of OnCommand Connection through their preferred telematics provider.”
