DAF introduces PACCAR Connect

PACCAR Connect launched as an advanced online fleet management platform, offering seamless integration and real-time vehicle insights.

Technology

With its wide range of information and industry-leading ease of use, the new PACCAR Connect sets the benchmark for online fleet management platforms. PACCAR Connect is easily accessible and allows simple integration with existing third-party software. Every new DAF XB, XD, XF, XG and XG+ is supplied as standard in combination with no less than 10 years of PACCAR Connect.

PACCAR Connect consists of a number of components: hardware and software in the truck, a detachable tablet (optional) in the cab and an online portal that can be accessed on almost any fixed or mobile device. PACCAR Connect can provide real-time information any time, anywhere, on the performance of individual vehicles and the entire fleet, logistical processes and the performance of drivers, thereby helping operators to optimise their returns.

One of the major benefits of PACCAR Connect is that existing logistical applications from so-called ‘third parties’ can use data from the online portal. This makes it easier to monitor logistical processes and the performance of a fleet from a computer, laptop or even a tablet.

The PACCAR Connect Tablet also helps make the work of the driver easier and more efficient, as it can connect the mobile services of PACCAR Connect to the DAF navigation system. This means that new routes drawn up by the operator’s home base can be sent directly to the DAF Truck Navigation system. PACCAR Connect makes it possible to view all truck and fleet performances 24/7 online or to send them via e-mail through the ‘Report Scheduler’ at any given moment. The route and fuel reports can be displayed on the dashboard according to individual preferences. PACCAR Connect also makes use of ‘geofencing’, which notifies the home base whenever a truck is nearing a delivery location or is fully operational again after undergoing maintenance at a dealer.

Fleet owners who require more comprehensive information can choose the optional Eco Score and Vehicle Health modules. The former provides detailed information on the driver’s performance, while the latter focuses on the condition of the vehicle – including real-time dashboard signals and an indication of when the vehicle will require its next service.
