Volvo Trucks has developed Volvo Connect – a flexible, long-term digital solution – to support all aspects of a transport business by connecting important functions and applications in one user-friendly platform.
Volvo Connect can be accessed anytime, anywhere from a full range of devices and screen sizes. The intuitive interface allows users to plan routes, manage driving and resting times and monitor the locations of trucks to track their progress. It is also easy to find service schedules and check the repair and maintenance history of vehicles, helping to reduce unplanned stops and keep trucks moving.
Subscribers can view insightful reports that analyse the key elements of their operation, such as driver performance, fuel efficiency and environmental impact. The reports also highlight where improvements can be made and provide recommendations on how to make them. The platform is also useful for dispatchers and drivers who need to stay in contact and share relevant information, such as traffic delays or faster routes.
“By combining connectivity and data analytics, we’re opening up new opportunities to support our customers. And that’s what Volvo Connect is all about.”
Crucially, the Volvo Connect interface is flexible and can easily be tailored to suit individual needs. Reports can be configured based on the parameters that are important to an individual business and information can be viewed and arranged according to personal preferences.
The ‘Marketplace’ – where users can subscribe to a growing number of innovative services from Volvo Trucks and its partners relevant to their business – ensures Volvo Connect will constantly evolve and remain at the forefront of digital services for truck operations.
“By combining connectivity and data analytics, we’re opening up new opportunities to support our customers. And that’s what Volvo Connect is all about,” says Karin Falk, Senior Vice President, Services & Customer Quality.
