LISLE, Ill. – Navistar’s OnCommand Connection remote diagnostics system has surpassed the 200,000-vehicle mark, with two-thirds of the vehicles in the system manufactured by other OEMs besides Navistar.
“OnCommand Connection continues to grow its subscriber base by proving its value to a wide range of customers who are seeking a one-stop telematics solution for their entire fleets,” said Terry Kline, Navistar senior vice-president and chief information officer. “Through our strategy of integrating with a wide range of leading telematics service providers, we are able to provide unique, single-portal access to fleet managers and other customers who want their fleet’s vehicle health information available through a single integrated portal. This open-architecture approach is helping many customers achieve significant uptime improvements, while also driving reduced maintenance costs.”
OnCommand Connection gets diagnostic trouble code data from telematics service providers and then interprets the data and creates vehicle health reports and recommended action plans, allowing fleets to better manage repairs and maintenance.
The OnCommand Connection is now available as a standard, no-charge feature on all new International trucks and an aftermarket solution supporting legacy International trucks and non-International vehicles.
