GM to offer IoT services to OnStar-enabled fleets
- February 19, 2020
The decision comes after an initial launch in the U.S. last year, and is aimed at businesses and commercial fleets with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles from the 2015 model year or newer.
"We are a Canadian-based company, and we know the pain points of our fleet-owning customers in Canada first and foremost. This is why, together with GM, we believe it necessary to simplify consumer access to connected vehicle technologies and big data analytics in order to help more Canadian businesses and fleets thrive," said Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete.
Dave Watson, GM Canada’s director of fleet and commercial sales says fleets of all sizes can improve safety and reduce operating costs using these data-driven business solutions.
"OnStar and our built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot opens the door for people to put very sophisticated software and analytical tools to work quickly and efficiently, as our solution eliminates the need for additional hardware," Watson said.
Fleet Complete's IoT platform, combined with GM's OnStar connectivity, is meant to help fleets of any size reduce expenses and downtime, improve driver and vehicle safety, and promote operational efficiency.
The technology uses existing OnStar hardware already installed in GM Fleet vehicles, which makes activating the software easier, and the companies said in a press release that there will be no long-term contract requirement
