DENTON, Texas– Peterbilt’s SmartLINQ technology is now in production, the company announced today.
The new technology is a factory-installed, fully integrated remote diagnostics system standard on all trucks equipped with a Paccar MX-13 engine. It was introduced in March 2015 and provides customers with real-time, at-a-glance fleet health to maximize uptime, keep deliveries on schedule and manage service events.
“SmartLINQ gives customers the tools they need for greater profitability, efficiency and productivity,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “Our extensive pilot testing of this time and money saving technology proves SmartLINQ provides customers with greater uptime and a new level of vehicle supervision and management. In addition, we are enhancing customer convenience with an exclusive new smartphone and tablet SmartLINQ app for both Android and iOS platforms.”
Woodall added that trucks with SmartLINQ (which includes a complimentary two-year subscription to the service) are fully supported by Peterbilt dealers. The company also rolled out a new mobile app (available on Apple devices through the Apple Store) that gives fleet managers and truck owners full access to the new technology’s portal.
“SmartLINQ strengthens the connection between our customers and dealers,” said Woodall. “Remote diagnostics technology provides customers with maximum uptime.”
The SmartLINQ app will be available for Android users later this month, Peterbilt said.
