General Motors launched Commercial Link just last year, but it’s moving up north. GM Canada announced the fleet management service will become available this coming fall and is specifically designed for small businesses.
Key information such as location, fuel level, miles driven and maintenance needs can be monitored at any time. The platform is powered by embedded OnStar hardware and aims to provide a factory-installed approach to a system without adding aftermarket equipment.
“Our customers are always looking for ways to increase the productivity of their vehicles, while at the same time-saving money to become a better business,” said Peter Bagnall, Director, General Motors Fleet Canada. “Commercial Link provides an up-to-date component so that they are always in touch with their vehicles’ performance and location, no matter where they are.”
As a fun fact, Commercial Link was actually born from an Australian start-up company, which GM quickly bought into and helped the technology flourish.
In Canada, like the United States, most 2015 model year and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles will be capable of supporting Commercial Link.
