Fleetsoft customers in the school bus industry can now access OnCommand Connection's real-time insights into vehicle health and maintenance requirements.

OnCommand Connection Advanced Remote Diagnostics has been integrated with Fleetsoft’s fleet maintenance and inventory management software, the companies announced on Monday.

OnCommand Connection is offered by Navistar, the parent company of school bus manufacturer IC Bus. The integration will provide Fleetsoft's customers in the school bus industry with OnCommand Connection's real-time insights into vehicle health and maintenance requirements.

"Fleetsoft's integration with OnCommand Connection, which provides the industry's most comprehensive GPS and telematics solutions, gives Fleetsoft's customers access to all the information they need to manage their entire fleet," said Kurt Claussner, president of Fleetsoft. "This partnership is designed to create a seamless, integrated user experience like no other."

With OnCommand Connection, Fleetsoft customers gain access to real-time data on engine fault codes, vehicle status, vehicle location, and odometer readings. Fleetsoft is also integrated with OnCommand Parts Catalog On-Line and the International Service Portal, for retrieval of vehicle information. In another feature that will be launched this fall, Fleetsoft customers will be able to send purchase orders directly to Navistar's Fleet Charge purchasing program.

"Our 'Better Together' approach means that this integration delivers incremental benefit not just to Fleetsoft customers, but to customers of our OnCommand Connection, as well," said Sean Slyman, Navistar's director of connected services, bus solutions. "By integrating with Fleetsoft's system, OnCommand Connection can continue to grow its Advanced Remote Diagnostics offerings to its customers, providing a whole new dimension of efficiency and proactive maintenance for the school bus industry."

    This is great for the big districts. What about the small districts with 10 to 20 buses and one technician? The districts that can't afford to buy the new buses and can barely afford to keep their buses running. OnCommand would be a great tool for those district also.
