General Motors announced a partnership with Spireon today to provide a telematics solution to GM fleet customers.

Using the OnStar 4G LTE hardware embedded in GM vehicles, Spireon will offer a customized version of its FleetLocate fleet management system on Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles. The new system will be available in May 2017.

Spireon’s FleetLocate system joins other GM Fleet business solutions that include a version of Telogis Fleet for GM and GM’s proprietary Commercial Link tool.

“Connectivity is the future for fleets of all sizes because the opportunities to help improve safety and reduce operating costs are so great,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “With OnStar 4G LTE technology and sophisticated software — whether it’s developed by us or by leading third-party providers — we can deliver innovative business solutions that work for any customer.”

“Our customers want choices and no other automaker has the combination of services, experience and connectivity GM and OnStar offer,” said Greg Ross, OnStar Business Development and Alliances director. “The Spireon collaboration is the latest example of how we’re well-positioned to adapt to our customers’ ever-changing needs with both products and services.”

Spireon, the largest aftermarket telematics provider with 3.75 million active U.S. subscribers, offers web-based fleet management solutions to monitor vehicle and driver performance. These solutions are designed to help fleet operators reduce fuel costs, idle time, labor, fleet mileage, and maintenance-related downtime, as well as provide insights into driver behavior, according to the company.

“FleetLocate connected by OnStar helps make it fast and easy for fleet managers to gain valuable vehicle and driver insights from their fleets wherever they are, with no installation downtime,” said Kevin Weiss, CEO of Spireon. “We’re excited to offer our GM customers a ‘push-button’ onboarding experience for FleetLocate, enhanced by exclusive diagnostics and data that only come from OnStar.”
