Allison Transmission has collaborated with Geotab, a provider of telematics and fleet management solutions, to deliver transmission health information that can include prognostics to monitor various operating parameters, oil and filter life and diagnostic transmission information to fleets. Allison said this partnership is the first step on a journey to provide fleets with actionable information to support its fourth- and fifth-generation Allison transmissions.
“We are committed to powering the global connected vehicle ecosystem for our customers with the insights they need, through the partners they trust. Our partnership with Geotab shows our unwavering commitment to our existing customers,” said John Coll, senior vice president, global marketing, sales and service with Allison Transmission.
Geotab provides open-platform fleet management solutions to businesses of all sizes. The company’s solutions help businesses better manage their drivers and vehicles by extracting accurate and actionable intelligence from real-time and historical data. Collecting more than 3 billion data points from more than 1.25 million connected vehicles every day, customers rely on Geotab’s technology to provide measurable management data.
“We are looking forward to providing our customers with health information for their Allison transmissions,” said Scott Sutarik, Geotab’s associate vice president, commercial vehicle solutions. “With MyGeotab, our web-based fleet management software, customers can see all of their vehicle and driver information in one place to help make quicker, better-informed decisions for their business.”
