Mack named Commercial Vehicle Maker of the Year

TU-Automotive has awarded Mack Trucks with the 2015 Commercial Vehicle Maker of the Year Award for Mack GuardDog Connect, its integrated telematics solution, and Mack Fleet Management Services.

“Mack is honored to have been selected as the TU-Automotive Commercial Vehicle Maker of the Year,” said David Pardue, Mack vice president of aftermarket business development. “Our groundbreaking approach to telematics and data integration is enabling our customers to effectively and efficiently manage their operations and improve vehicle uptime.”

GuardDog Connect is a proactive diagnostic and repair planning solution that monitors critical fault codes that could potentially shut down a truck or lead to an unplanned visit to the dealer. Available and standard in Mack Granite, Pinnacle, Titan and TerraPro concrete pumper models, GuardDog Connect now monitors more than 25,000 Mack models and has maximized customer uptime by reducing diagnostic and repair times by 70 percent and 21 percent, respectively.

Mack Fleet Management Services combines data from the integrated GuardDog Connect telematics hardware with cloud-based intelligence software, initially offered through Telogis, to help fleet owners enhance their operational performance, reduce costs and increase safety.
