General Motors Fleet is expanding its suite of driver connectivity and fleet management solutions by adding Spireon to its telematics service provider roster. Using the embedded OnStar 4G LTE hardware in the vehicles, Spireon will offer a customized version of its FleetLocate tool, allowing fleet operators to better manage their Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles beginning this May.
Spireon’s FleetLocate feature joins a roster of GM Fleet business solutions that includes a version of Telogis Fleet for FM and GM’s own Commercial Link tool. Spireon’s web-based fleet management solutions monitor vehicle and driver performance and give fleet operators insights to help them reduce fuel costs, idle time, labor, fleet mileage, and maintenance-related downtime.
“Our customers want choices and no other automaker has the combination of services, experience and connectivity GM and OnStar offer,” says Greg Ross, OnStar business development and alliances director. “The Spireon collaboration is the latest example of how we’re well-positioned to adapt to our customers’ ever-changing needs with both products and services.”
