Hino Trucks introduced Hino Edge, the company's all-new, third-generation connected vehicle solution. Hino Edge combines the digital connection between the fleet customer, dealer network, telematics service providers (TSPs), and Hino Ultimate Support Center, to provide customers a competitive edge.
This new solution replaces Hino Insight and is included on qualifying 2022 model-year and newer Hino conventional trucks as standard equipment.
Hino customers will receive five years of complimentary access to Edge's fleet management web portal and mobile hub app named Hino Ultimate. The fully integrated connectivity ecosystem delivers vehicle location tracking, a live fleet performance dashboard, vehicle health monitoring including real time fault notifications with severity ratings, simplified service experience with case communication, and the flexibility to add-on a third party advanced telematics service from one of Hino Trucks preferred partners.
"The enhanced suite of capabilities from Hino Edge and the wealth of assistance it provides are key advantages to our customers through unmatched operational efficiencies. Then there is the new addition of the Hino Ultimate app, putting real-time actionable information in the palm of your hand. It's the complete solution customers are asking for and we are excited to deliver!" said Dominik Beckman, director of marketing, Dealer Operations, and Connected Vehicle for Hino Trucks.
Hino Trucks has partnered with top TSPs to integrate business systems with Edge. Customers may elect to have vehicle data directly sent to the TSP of their choice - saving the cost of purchasing telematics equipment and increasing the amount of vehicle information accessible by TSP's, enabling higher value reporting. Current partners include Geotab, MiX Telematics, and Samsara with more TSPs being added.
Hino partnered with T-Mobile to deliver the communication speed, capability, and reliability needed today. Now, Hino customers will benefit from T-Mobile's combination of network quality and portfolio of resources that go beyond convenience into critical, real-time vehicle communication and business empowering solutions.
