ROLLE, SWITZERLAND and ALISO VIEJO, CALIF., USA – Oct. 4, 2016 – Nissan Europe and Telogis, a Verizon company, have partnered to offer next-generation connected vehicle technologies and services to Nissan commercial customers in Europe. The new NissanConnect Fleet powered by Telogis offering will connect customers’ vehicles, people and the work that is being done, helping to make drivers safer, providing higher levels of service, while improving sustainability and operational efficiency.
“The time has come for Nissan commercial customers to benefit from the visibility and operational intelligence they gain by connecting their business,” said Philippe Guerin-Boutaud, Corporate Vice President, Global LCV Business Unit, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. “From empowering workers on the road and in the field to help them be safer and more efficient, to optimising daily delivery routes, NissanConnect Fleet will have a transformational effect on the way Nissan customers do business.”
The introduction of the new NissanConnect Fleet service marks an important step in advancing Nissan’s connected services offering across Europe, and also forms part of the brand’s Intelligent Mobility strategy that is guiding Nissan’s product and technology development to create a safer and more sustainable future.
Utilising hardware that has been factory-fitted or installed by a certified Nissan dealer, NissanConnect Fleet connects the vehicle to Telogis’ Mobile Resource Management (MRM) software platform. This platform receives and analyses proprietary Nissan data from each vehicle including driver and vehicle performance history, and turns it into actionable information to help companies of all sizes make more informed business decisions.
“Customers will experience near-immediate return on investment by utilising the built-in connection in their Nissan vehicles,” said Kevin Moore, Vice President, Global OEM Automotive Sales at Telogis. “Telogis delivers mission-critical applications that enable Nissan commercial customers in Europe to connect, optimise and automate their operations, improve the lives of their drivers and provide a higher level of service to their own customers.”
Many of the world’s largest and most well-known commercial fleets connect their vehicles, assets, people, customers and the work that’s being done outside the four walls of their business through the Telogis MRM platform. Once connected, Telogis software will optimise and automate work and processes to drive safety, productivity, efficiency and sustainability in businesses of all sizes.
The NissanConnect Fleet powered by Telogis offering will be available in Europe this autumn supporting the following initial vehicles (with more to come):
- All crossover range Qashqai, X-Trail and Juke
- Medium-compact car Pulsar
- New Navara One Ton Pick-up
- NV200 light commercial vehicles (LCV)
