International Truck Introduces Telematics Advancements

March 24, 2015

At the Mid-America Trucking Show, International Truck introduced advances to its OnCommand Connection open architecture remote diagnostics system. OnCommand Connection works with a customer’s existing telematics provider, pulling diagnostic-related data to create vehicle health reports. Visibility into the operational health of the vehicle empowers customers to understand the severity of vehicle issues and determine the appropriate actions—ultimately leading to increased uptime.

The updates include:

  • OnCommand Connection is Now Standard

OnCommand Connection will now be available as a standard, no-charge feature on all new International trucks. In addition, fleets with International trucks or competitive vehicles, model year 2007 and newer, with partnering telematics providers, will also have the opportunity to obtain OnCommand Connection through International truck dealers, free of charge.

  • Telematics Hardware and Data Bundle on International Branded Vehicles

The company announced a “credit” for base model telematics hardware and two years of data service on International branded vehicles upon activation. For customers choosing to upgrade from the base telematics hardware, a retail parts program is available to offset the incremental cost to customers. This bundled offering will be available in July 2015.
