Cummins Teams With Geotab for Rapid Engine Maintenance Support

Cummins Inc.’s Connected Diagnostics application is now available to customers using Geotab’s fleet management solution, according to these two major players in the trucking industry.

Geotab is one of the first technology providers in the telematics industry to support Connected Diagnostics, and provides improved fleet management, equipment maintenance and repair support to Cummins customers.

Connected Diagnostics leverages data from Geotab’s latest GO devices to provide immediate notification of urgent engine system faults, and provides actionable information and genuine Cummins recommendations in an easy-to-understand notification report. The innovative GPS-enabled GO7 is a plug-and-play device with internal antennas. It eliminates equipment out-of-service installation time, significantly lowers installation costs and allows immediate improvement of fleet productivity.

“We’re excited to be expanding the Geotab-compatible ecosystem, adding Cummins Connected Diagnostics application to our roster,” said Colin Sutherland, vice president of sales for Geotab. “Our joint solution will allow fleet managers to address faults within seconds, assisting with quicker mission management decisions, reducing progressive damage potential and improving efficient maintenance and repair scheduling. Cummins Connected Diagnostics, enabled by Geotab’s GO devices, allow fleets to easily access useful, real-time engine data, cut costs and make more informed business decisions.”

“Cummins is excited to integrate Connected Diagnostics with Geotab, and through its innovative platform, we can bring Connected Diagnostics insight to a broad range of Cummins customers in many types of applications,” added John Malina, executive director of product connectivity business for Cummins Inc. “We look forward to greater opportunities to support customer operations and repair processes in the near future through Geotab.”
