Watch: Remote diagnostic services will save you time in the shop

By notifying drivers and fleet managers instantly, remote diagnostics systems indicate fault code severity levels and allow for more informed decisions about whether a truck is inoperable and if a service event should be started immediately.

There’s no doubt that today’s advanced telematics systems are improving vehicle uptime. Along with providing information that helps streamline operations, these solutions are proving to be a critical part of eliminating guesswork about the severity of events requiring service.

By notifying drivers and fleet managers instantly, remote diagnostics systems indicate fault code severity levels and allow for more informed decisions about whether a truck is inoperable and if a service event should be started immediately. Similarly, they can point to whether service is needed as soon as possible or if it can wait until the next preventative maintenance interval.
