Seamless solutions that transform fleets

Learn how the transportation industry is transforming

We’re taking another big step forward in the world of connected fleets.

Business customers with eligible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles in the US can soon activate both a fleet management solution and 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot in vehicles together. We’re making this possible through our work with General Motors and Fleet Complete.

That means GM commercial fleet and government customers can for the first time enjoy the benefits of a comprehensive fleet management solution when they purchase a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle with connected services. By activating AT&T-enabled 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspots (provided by AT&T, not OnStar/GM), their fleet vehicles can become mobile offices on wheels.

An introductory offer priced at $45 per month – taxes and fees not included; additional details to be provided at launch – including Fleet Complete and 5 GB of AT&T 4G LTE Wi-Fi® data per month is coming this summer.

I talk to a lot of fleet managers. Many have been reluctant to take the jump into fully connected fleet vehicles. They have had to take vehicles out of service to install fleet management hardware. That can be a logistical challenge and the costs mount up. Until now.

Now it’s simple – no need to worry about hardware installation.

Businesses with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicles and AT&T accounts can activate AT&T Fleet Complete services and 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspots with minimal effort. They can also add the new services to existing AT&T corporate accounts. And we offer the flexibility for fleet customers to visit one of our 5,000 retail stores across the U.S. to sign up.

Businesses that utilize Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles get seamless access to a web-based portal that enables streamlined GPS routing and location of assets, better management of fuel costs, workforce management, driver safety and more on their connected vehicles.

With Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspots, road warriors get all the benefits of high-speed connectivity to access enterprise solutions. That means connections for up to seven smartphones, tablets and laptops up to 50 feet from the vehicle, sharing of real-time information in the field and shared data plan capability.

This is a combination that will be transformative – and stay tuned for even more innovative fleet solutions in the future.

Now is the time for fleet managers to join the massive transformation of the vehicle solution and transportation industries. This is just the beginning!
