Now in Canada GM Commercial Link makes vehicle management easier
General Motors has announced it is expanding its Commercial Link fleet management tool into the Canadian market. This fleet management solution was specifically designed for small and medium sized businesses and allows business managers to access key vehicle information such as location, fuel level, distance driven and maintenance needs at any time.
"Our customers are always looking for ways to increase the productivity of their vehicles, while at the same time saving money to become a better business," said Peter Bagnall, director, General Motors Fleet in Canada. "Commercial Link provides an up-to-date component so that they are always in touch with their vehicles' performance and location, no matter where they are."
The platform harnesses the connectivity of the OnStar hardware, avoiding the added cost and time required to add aftermarket hardware to GM vehicles in order to access key vehicle information. Through the power of OnStar connectivity the business owner can access a detailed, near real-time view of their vehicle operations that will allow them to more efficiently manage their fleet.
Commercial Link is available on most 2015 model year and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles with factory installed OnStar. The Commercial Link tool can give small business customers, with an active OnStar account, instant access to vehicle information through a responsive website and mobile solution, compatible with web-enabled Android and Apple mobile devices. Access to Commercial Link costs $12 (plus taxes) per vehicle, per month and requires no long-term contract.
Commercial Link can be customized around the needs of each user, allowing for personalization of account dashboards and the ability to set up text or email alerts around sensitive items, such as if a driver is low on fuel or requires vehicle maintenance.
