Fleet Complete helping to bring IoT to GM vehicles
TORONTO — Fleet Complete has announced today that they are working with General Motors to bring IoT-enabled services on OnStar-equipped vehicles to Canada. This will benefit Canadian small businesses and commercial fleets with 15 Model Year and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles to improve operations, safety, and overall fleet management through data analytics.
“Today, our partnership with GM has a proven success track record in the US, and we are very excited to offer the same solution to Canadian businesses,” comments Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete. “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.”
Fleets of all sizes are rapidly embracing innovative, data-driven business solutions that can help them improve safety and reduce operating costs, said Dave Watson, fleet and commercial sales director, GM Canada. “Embedded connectivity is the future, and with over 21-years of experience, 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, helps fleets of any size reduce expenses and downtime, improve driver and vehicle safety, and promote operational efficiency to ignite business growth.
