Samsara and General Motors work to optimize cloud-based fleet management
Samsara Inc. announced it will work with General Motors (GM) to give shared customers a holistic view of their commercial fleets and help them operate more efficiently. Through this integrated solution, properly equipped 2015 or newer GM vehicles with the OnStar embedded module will gain connectivity to Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud with no installation or additional hardware required.
Samsara’s integration with GM vehicles is now available for fleet customers in the U.S. with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac MY2015 or newer OnStar equipped GM vehicles. Access to GM’s connected vehicle data through Samsara’s integrated solution will streamline and increase the visibility of eligible GM vehicles through a single dashboard on Samsara’s platform. This holistic view of vehicle insights – including fuel levels and 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.
“We know our fleet customers value the opportunity to protect their assets and make their business operations more productive,” said Michelle Calloway, Director of OnStar Business Solutions at GM. “By leveraging OnStar’s embedded hardware for our integrated solution with Samsara, fleet managers will now have access to a singular platform that includes valuable insights, helping to make fleet operations more seamless and efficient.”
“At Samsara, we’re building integrations that help our customers digitize their physical operations and provide streamlined access to critical, real-time data,” explained 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.”
