The new digital tracking feature enables increased and real-time communication between drivers or fleet managers and roadside assistance providers so customers are better informed as to when help will arrive. This removes the guesswork about arrival times and allows customers to make more informed decisions.
“The digital tracker is modern, improves customer uptime and increases certainty and visibility during an unplanned stop," David Pardue, Mack Trucks vice president of connected solutions, said.
The expanded OneCall service features faster dispatching, which reduces wait time by offering an improved estimate time of arrival for roadside assistance providers through a digital platform. It also improves visibility and live tracking by allowing customers to see exactly when roadside assistance will arrive via an interactive map, similar to ridesharing applications. The expanded service also reduces additional phone calls as it enables customers to communicate and receive status updates directly via text messages.
