Allison Offers Diagnostic Information Through Geotab

Allison Transmission, the world’s largest manufacturer of fully automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced it has collaborated with telematics provider Geotab Inc. to deliver diagnostic codes and transmission information to fleets.

This partnership is the first step on a journey to provide fleets with actionable information to support their fourth- and fifth-generation Allison transmissions, according to the Indianapolis-based company.

“We are committed to powering the global connected vehicle ecosystem for our customers with the insights they need, through the partners they trust,” John Coll, senior vice president of global marketing, sales and service with Allison, said in a statement.

Allison is working with both telematics service providers and original equipment manufacturers to support existing and new customers with connected capabilities. Support for additional vocations and global regions is planned.

“With MyGeotab, our web-based fleet management software, customers can see all of their vehicle and driver information in one place to help make quicker, better-informed decisions for their business,” said Scott Sutarik, Geotab’s associate vice president for commercial vehicle solutions.

Oakville,Ont.-based Geotab collects more than 3 billion data points from over 1.25 million connected vehicles every day.
