New Wireless Tool Offered by GM
Qualifying GM commercial vehicles and fleet customers can elect to receive a one-year subscription to a new wireless mobile productivity tool upon the purchase of a vehicle through either the GMC Fit for Profit or Chevrolet Commercial Customer’s Choice promotional programs. The wireless tool is Gearworks’ etrace xt application, which is used to dispatch mobile workers. Running on Nextel’s Java technology-enabled i58sr phone with global positioning system (GPS) capabilities, etrace xt provides field workers GPS-based driving directions and the ability to manage job schedules and receive information from headquarters; a web-based system for dispatchers allowing them to quickly locate vehicles, track the entire fleet, determine job status, and reporting tools to measure worker performance.
Qualified fleet customers will receive a GPS/Java-enabled Nextel i58sr phone and a one-year subscription to a Nextel Total Connect data plan when they select the etrace xt package. Eligible vehicles that offer the etrace xt package are the GMC Sierra/Chevrolet Silverado and HD pickups, Savana/Savana Pro and Express/Express Access vans, Astro/Safari, and S10/Sonoma pickups.
