Volvo Trucks North America has launched Omnitracs for Volvo Trucks, a new option for fleet management built on Volvo’s integrated Remote Diagnostics hardware.

Omnitracs for Volvo Trucks uses critical information such as GPS location, road speed, idle duration and cost from the vehicle’s built-in diagnostics hardware. The system can provide an in-depth analysis of driver performance based on historical and current data and location.

The system can also send text message- and email-based alerts for a detailed summary and exception reporting.

“Omnitracs for Volvo Trucks combines the vast fleet management knowledge of Omnitracs with Volvo Remote Diagnostics hardware to unlock productivity and visibility advantages gained from data analytics,” said Conal Deedy, director of connected vehicle services at Volvo Trucks. “It also enables customers to focus on improving road safety by monitoring driver behavior and performance.”

Omnitracs for Volvo Trucks is now available as a subscription option on every new Volvo truck and can be retrofitted to older vehicles equipped with telematics hardware. For more information, click here.
