Technology Focus: Hino Connect
Hino Motors Sales (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (HMSM) reckons that the success of a logistics business depends on a constant, consistent, and reliable fleet management solution.
With this in mind, HMSM proudly introduces the new smart telematics device called ‘Hino Connect’ to support operations and fleet managers to take care of their trucks. Featuring a 7-inch touch screen monitor, Hino Connect is designed to support transport companies in improving operational efficiency in terms of increase of profit and revenue.
It offers improved safety and security via a 24-hour call centre assist. The system also encourages good driving behaviour, reduces unplanned downtime and can be used to monitor truck maintenance schedules by understanding the key elements and characteristics of the asset (vehicle). Besides featuring basic functions such as radio, bluetooth, and USB port, the main element in Hino Connect is the SOS button. The driver can use this in case of an emergency when it is not possible to make a call out.
Working towards being technologically savvy, HMSM has also developed its proprietary mobile application called “myHINO”. Hino Connect, the telematics device, is linked to myHINO, where users can access their truck’s information at any time through a smart phone. myHINO application offers customers with benefits, rewards, and assistance at a touch of a button.
