Detroit Connect Portal to Deliver More Data to Fleets
Since 2011, Detroit™ Connect Virtual Technician℠ has led the way in delivering quick, actionable engine and aftertreatment fault diagnosis information to fleet customers. Virtual Technician alerts fleets when an engine fault occurs. The system interprets the fault code and sends an automated email to the fleet advising the proper course of action. If it is a severe fault – “Service Now” – event, an expert at the Detroit Customer Support Center sends a follow up email within 30 minutes with a more thorough assessment about what is causing the problem with their Detroit engine, what parts are recommended to fix the problem, and where to find nearby service locations with those parts.
