DAF expands DAF Connect functionality

DAF Trucks is adding new functionality to the online DAF Connect Fleet Management Platform.

A new feature within the DAF Connect Portal is the webshop which helps transport operators manage their DAF Connect subscriptions with just a mouse click.

As a result, contracts can be extended with additional services online, which adds to the user-friendliness and efficiency.

“The webshop makes managing subscriptions very easy”, states Jorg Wijnands, manager marketing at DAF Connect. “The online dashboard shows at-a-glance which applications are available for purchase or extension.”

Another innovation is the enhancement of the DAF Connect Open Platform, which illustrates the great advantages of DAF Connect over other fleet management systems. Based on trusted partnerships between selected 3rd parties, DAF Connect now supports easy integration with existing Fleet Management Systems (FMS) and Transport Management Systems (TMS).

The DAF Connect Open Platform also enables trusted 3rd party fleet management suppliers to retrieve data directly from Connect. This lessens the number of costly hardware modules in the vehicle and enables plug-and-play integration which reduces the total cost of ownership for our customers.

Wijnands concludes: “The DAF Connect Open Platform is the best flexible solution for hardware integration of professional transport solutions.”
