Allison Transmission said it is collaborating with LHP Telematics, a Westfield, Indiana-based provider of custom white-label telematics solutions focused on OEMs and dealer networks in the off-highway, on-highway, construction, motor-coach and agriculture markets.
The collaboration will help improve remote support of fourth- and fifth-generation Allison transmissions, according to the company.
“Partnering with LHP Telematics is the next step in our commitment to extend Allison’s growth in the connected ecosystem,” said John Coll, senior vice president, global marketing, sales and service at Allison Transmission. “More of Allison’s customers will receive remote access to critical information about their transmissions from sources they know and trust.”
Travis Jones, CTO of LHP Telematics, added: “The Allison partnership further enhances our ability to offer custom CAN-enabled solutions to our OEM customers that have additional value propositions above and beyond standard telematics. The transmission is one of the most complex and expensive components on most equipment and this service can reduce costs and downtime at the OEM, dealer and end customer.”
In a news release, Allison said it “is committed to powering the global connected-vehicle ecosystem with telematics-system providers, fleet-management software providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support existing and new customers with connected capabilities.”
