Allison Transmission announced its partnership with Saucon Technologies, a leading provider of technology solutions for the passenger transportation industry, to deliver transmission health information to motorcoach, public transit, and school bus fleets. Transmission health information includes prognostics to monitor various operating parameters, oil and filter life and diagnostic transmission information. The partnership is part of an ongoing journey to provide fleets with actionable information to support their fourth- and fifth-generation Allison transmissions that are already in service.
“We are pleased to partner with Saucon Technologies as they extend new capabilities and value to existing customer fleets,” said John Coll, senior vice president, global marketing, sales and service with Allison Transmission. “We look forward to working with Saucon and seeing the great results that we can accomplish together.”
Saucon’s transportation management platform provides a full suite of cloud-based software, hardware and analytics tools — from GPS fleet tracking and onboard video to remote engine diagnostics.
“Our goal at Saucon is to be able to provide as much data from as many onboard systems as possible, in near real-time,” said Rich Shelley, Saucon executive vice president, sales and marketing. This allows our customers to manage the overall health of their vehicles through the use of our Cloud-based Portal. Allison’s expertise, in regards to their transmissions, turns the data into actionable intelligence, which can lower maintenance costs, reduce downtime and deliver improved vehicle performance.”
Allison is committed to powering the global connected vehicle ecosystem with telematics system providers, fleet-management software providers, and original equipment manufacturers to support existing and new customers with connected capabilities. The company plans to support additional vocations and global regions.
