Navistar announced Monday its OnCommand Connection Advanced Remote Diagnostics has been integrated with the software of Fleetsoft, a leading provider of fleet maintenance and inventory management software.
Navistar states the integration will immediately provide Fleetsoft’s customers in the school bus industry with OnCommand Connection’s actionable, real-time insights into vehicle health and maintenance requirements, enabling a proactive maintenance approach that delivers increased reliability, reduced maintenance costs and improved uptime.
“Fleetsoft’s integration with OnCommand Connection, which provides the industry’s most comprehensive GPS and telematics solutions, gives Fleetsoft’s customers access to all the information they need to manage their entire fleet,” says Kurt Claussner, president, Fleetsoft. “This partnership is designed to create a seamless, integrated user experience like no other. We look forward to working together moving forward.”
With OnCommand Connection, Fleetsoft customers now gain access to real-time data on engine fault codes, vehicle status, vehicle location and odometer readings, Navistar says. Fleetsoft also is integrated with OnCommand Parts Catalog On-Line and the InternationalService Portalsm for easy retrieval of vehicle information. In another feature that will be launched this fall, Navistar adds Fleetsoft customers will be able to send purchase orders directly to Navistar’s Fleet Charge purchasing program.
“Our ‘Better Together’ approach means that this integration delivers incremental benefit not just to Fleetsoft customers, but to customers of our OnCommand Connection, as well,” says Sean Slyman, Navistar’s director, Connected Services, Bus Solutions. “By integrating with Fleetsoft’s system, OnCommand Connection can continue to grow its Advanced Remote Diagnostics offerings to its customers, providing a whole new dimension of efficiency and proactive maintenance for the school bus industry.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Fleetsoft, and look forward to developing additional solutions and features that will benefit both companies’ customers.”
