Volvo Trucks North America has begun a partnership with Omnitracs, developers of routing and predictive analytics solutions for fleets, to develop future fleet management services for customers. The agreement allows the leveraging of Volvo’s Remote Diagnostics telematics-based proactive diagnostic and repair planning system to offer solutions that help fleets run their businesses more effectively.
Fleet management services provide trucking operations with vital information on their assets and operation, such as vehicle location, vehicle and driver performance data, regulatory compliance and more, helping fleets control costs, improve customer service and increase safety.
“Volvo’s integrated telematics capabilities are key to our industry-leading uptime services, but they also provide customers more options for powerful and cost-effective fleet management services,” said Conal Deedy, Volvo Trucks director of connected vehicle services. “This relationship with Omnitracs will advance our connected vehicle strategy by opening the door to another leading provider of services to help our customers run their businesses more efficiently.”
“By joining forces, Volvo and Omnitracs can deliver even more customer value than what the two leaders in their fields can accomplish independently,” said Richard Glasmann, Omnitracs vice president of OEM strategy, sales and marketing.
