The FINANCIAL -- Stuttgart - The third generation of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter defines the top echelon in the Large Van segment – also with respect to digitisation and connectivity.
The new Mercedes PRO fleet solutions are being activated to coincide with the market launch of the new Sprinter and are available to customers purchasing the new Sprinter. These solutions are even available free of charge in Germany until September.
Mercedes PRO – the new platform for connectivity solutions
According to Daimler, Mercedes PRO is the brand by Mercedes-Benz Vans for all current and future services, solutions and digital services for daily business. Designed for fleets, Mercedes PRO optimises communication between fleet manager, vehicles and drivers. The connectivity solution allows online controlling of orders and practically real-time retrieval of vehicle information such as location, fuel level or maintenance intervals. Its advantages range from minimised downtimes as a consequence of proactive maintenance and repair management to clearly presented data for business analysis purposes. All fleets can benefit from the web-based service - from small businesses to key accounts.
The technical basis is the communication module (LTE) that is installed in all Sprinter variants, which forms the interface between fleet manager (web-based vehicle management tool) and driver. This gives the driver a game-changing solution that helps the fleets achieve greater transparency and efficiency, according to Daimler.
The optional MBUX – the Sprinter's all-new Human Machine Interface (HMI) that is leading the way in the van segment – is particularly user-friendly for the Sprinter driver.
