ZF Aftermarket Introduces ZF Bus Connect In North America
ZF Aftermarket recently introduced its advanced digital solution, ZF Bus Connect. The new digital product provides a cloud-based tool for bus fleets, service providers and OEMs to increase safety and efficiency, improve uptime and decrease total cost of ownership (TCO) by turning remote vehicle data into actionable insights.
ZF Bus Connect consists of three elements: a small, on-board unit in the vehicle, the cloud, and a web-based portal or mobile app. Users can configure this all-in-one solution as a package, or use their own compatible on-board unit to connect to the cloud and access the information via the ZF Bus Connect portal or app.
ZF Health Check, a module within ZF Bus Connect, enables aftermarket providers to identify and address maintenance needs for ZF transmissions, reducing the risk of unexpected breakdowns and minimizing downtime.
“With ZF Bus Connect we are empowering fleets, service providers and OEMs to leverage vehicle data to improve operations, lower their costs and better serve customers,” Anuj Gupta, Head of Digital for ZF Aftermarket in North America, said. “It’s a powerful digital tool that helps users bring greater value to their customers while moving toward a more sustainable model of operations.”
ZF Bus Connect is compatible with city buses and coaches with both electric and combustion engines, or hybrid systems in a mixed fleet. Operators can use it to check every aspect of a vehicle in operation, including its location in real-time, current energy or fuel consumption, battery charge, brake wear, and the status of a vehicle’s parts and systems.
ZF Bus Connect was recently named a finalist for the Technology Innovation Award from MEMA’s Business Technology Council, the aftermarket’s leading business technology forum. The award recognizes companies in North America whose innovations advance the aftermarket. Visit ZF Bus Connect – ZF.
