MiX Telematics announced it is collaborating with Hino Trucks' Edge to become an authorized Hino data services partner.
This collaboration will provide MiX customers in North America that operate Hino trucks with rich data sets, informing decision-making regarding vehicle maintenance, safety, efficiency, and compliance. It also removes the need for the installation of aftermarket hardware in associated vehicles.
"The future of commercial vehicle telematics lies in successful OEM integrations," said Charles Tasker, COO at MiX Telematics. "MiX is rapidly accelerating working with leading vehicle OEMs to ensure clients can easily access rich data needed to optimize fleet and driver safety."
There is an increasing demand for telematics software that's augmented by additional capabilities and robust data analytics.
"We are pleased to add MiX Telematics as a data service partner," said Glenn Ellis, Hino Trucks' senior vice president of customer experience. "Our Edge telematics open platform allows partners like MiX Telematics to access core vehicle data to enhance the operational and actionable analytics they provide their customers through the MiX Telematics platform."
