At its customer conference Beyond, Samsara Inc., announced it will work with General Motors (GM) to give shared customers a holistic view of commercial fleets; it will also help them operate more efficiently. Through this solution, properly equipped GM vehicles will gain connectivity to Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud with no installation required.
This integration is now available for fleet customers in the US with General Motors MY2015 or newer OnStar equipped vehicles. Additionally, the integrated solution will streamline and increase the visibility of vehicle data through a single dashboard on Samsara’s platform. This holistic view of vehicle insights—including fuel levels as well as usage, fleet vehicle location, speed, and tire pressure—alongside additional operations data on Samsara’s platform, will help optimize fleet productivity and safety, simplify workflows, and improve efficiency.
Michelle Calloway, director of OnStar Business Solutions at GM, says fleets value the opportunity to protect assets and increase productivity. Through the integration, fleets now have access to a singular platform making operations efficient and seamless, Calloway says.
“At Samsara, we’re building integrations that help our customers digitize their physical operations and provide streamlined access to critical, real-time data” explains Chris Mozzocchi, Senior Director of Product Management at Samsara. “Our work with GM will help fleet managers quickly and easily connect their OnStar embedded vehicles to our Connected Operations Cloud, consolidate their data, and better manage their day-to-day operations.”
Further, this integrated solution is currently available in early access for eligible GM vehicles in the United States.
