Fleet Complete announced today that it is partnering with Detroit-based General Motors Co. to accelerate the delivery of IoT-enabled services on OnStar-equipped (2015 model year and newer) Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles in the U.S. for small businesses and commercial fleets.
Fleet Complete’s CONNVEX platform, combined with OnStar connectivity, can help fleets of any size reduce expenses and downtime, improve driver behavior, and promote efficiency.
“Connectivity is the future, and fleets of all sizes are rapidly embracing innovative, data-driving business solutions that can help them improve safety and reduce operating costs,” says Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of General Motors Fleet. “The combination of OnStar connectivity and our built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot opens the door for people to put very sophisticated software and analytical tools to work quickly and efficiently.”
Some of the benefits of the GM/Fleet Complete partnership include the ability to leverage existing OnStar hardware, immediate onboarding with no long-term contract, and easy activation of Fleet Complete software.
“Working with GM Fleet is a major milestone for us as an organization, and we are very excited at the opportunity to jointly serve fleets well into the future,” says Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete.
“Our collaboration attests to the fact that integrated connected vehicles, especially in business, are becoming the new norm. Our IoT solutions are designed to offer fleets of all sizes and vehicle types the advantage of big data analytics. Working together with GM will simplify consumer access to connected vehicle technologies and help more fleet-owning businesses thrive.”
