Allison Transmission is collaborating with Westfield IN-based LHP Telematics to improve remote support of its fourth- and fifth-generation transmissions.

LHP creates custom white-label telematics solutions focused on OEMs and dealer networks in the off-highway, on-highway, construction, motor coach and agriculture markets.

“Partnering with LHP Telematics is the next step in our commitment to extend Allison’s growth in the connected ecosystem,” said John Coll, senior vice president of global marketing sales and service at Allison.

“More of Allison’s customers will receive remote access to critical information about their transmissions from sources they know and trust.”

Allison says it’s committed to powering the global connected vehicle ecosystem with telematics system providers, fleet management software providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support existing and new customers with connected capabilities.

The company also said it’s planning support for additional vocations and global regions.

“The Allison partnership further enhances our ability to offer custom CAN-enabled solutions to our OEM customers that have additional value propositions above and beyond standard telematics,” said Travis Jones, CTO of LHP Telematics.

“The transmission is one of the most complex and expensive components on most equipment and this service can reduce costs and downtime at the OEM, dealer and end customer.”
