Daimler Truck North America customers can access data-driven predictive insights to help reduce unplanned downtime and maintenance costs.

Daimler Truck North America  (DTNA) is embracing data-as-a-service (DaaS) for its customers. The commercial vehicle manufacturer recently entered into a commercial agreement with Uptake, a leading predictive analytics software-as-a-service (SaaS) specialist, that will enable the use of DaaS technology to power Uptake Fleet, Uptake’s comprehensive predictive maintenance and work order analytics technology.

Through this DaaS agreement and upon customer consent, DTNA will facilitate streaming of the necessary data to power Uptake Fleet. Uptake will administer the technology to help fleets optimize vehicle lifecycles and reduce repair costs using predictive vehicle maintenance. By analyzing information from subsystem sensors and work orders, Uptake can predict vehicle problems well in advance of a fault code and recommend corrective actions before they lead to costly repairs, delays or roadside breakdowns.

“Since its inception, Uptake has been focused on connecting data, assets and operators. Our agreement with DTNA will provide our customers and partners with even more data-driven insights to ensure fleets are fully operational, safe and reliable,” said Kayne Grau, CEO of Uptake.

“Daimler Truck North America is committed to using cutting-edge technologies so our customers can get the longest and most impactful life from their vehicles,” said Sanjiv Khurana of DTNA. “It is encouraging that Uptake is exploring new ways of leveraging data to optimize the performance of our trucks, and we are excited to explore the potential this brings.”
