General Motors Fleet is expanding its suite of industry-leading driver connectivity and fleet management solutions by adding Spireon to its telematics service provider roster.
Using the embedded OnStar 4G LTE hardware in the vehicles, Spireon will offer a customized version of its FleetLocate tool that will allow fleet operators to better manage their Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, beginning May 2017.
Spireon’s FleetLocate joins a roster of GM Fleet business solutions that includes a version of Telogis Fleet for GM and GM’s own Commercial Link tool. Each solution is turnkey, scalable and can help provide cost savings by eliminating unnecessary hardware costs and limiting vehicle downtime.
Spireon’s web-based fleet management solutions monitor vehicle and driver performance and give fleet operators insights to help them reduce fuel costs, idle time, labor, fleet mileage and maintenance-related downtime. They can also help provide insights into driver behavior.
Spireon’s telematics software is designed to help drivers identify and improve upon driving behaviors. It can also help customers manage their fuel purchases.
To drive further development and adoption of connected vehicle solutions, OnStar has an online portal that allows developers such as Spireon to work with GM to design, test and deliver relevant, customizable and seamlessly integrated automotive apps and services.
