The collaboration with automaker GM hopes to reward fleets with cost reduction, higher safety and efficiency.
Fleet, asset and mobile workforce IoT services provider Fleet Complete announced they will collaborate with General Motors to bring IoT-enabled services to On-Star equipped OnStar-equipped 15 MY and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles in the U.S owned by small businesses and commercial fleets.
“Connectivity is the future, and fleets of all sizes are rapidly embracing innovative, data-driven business solutions that can help them improve safety and reduce operating costs,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet. “The combination of OnStar connectivity 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.”
