FORDLiive – a New Commercial Vehicle Uptime Accelerator to Maximise Productivity for Businesses
FORDLiive – a new connected uptime system designed to help Ford commercial vehicle operators increase their productivity by maximising vehicle uptime.
FORDLiive promises to transform the way Ford customers run and maintain their vehicles, by reducing the number of breakdowns, enabling fewer time-consuming visits to dealer workshops, and achieving quicker servicing and repair times. Ford projections show FORDLiive can potentially reduce vehicle downtime by up to 60 per cent. 1
Connecting Ford’s commercial vehicle customers, the Transit Centre network and the automaker itself, the system uses real-time vehicle data 2 to individually optimise the productivity of each vehicle in a customer’s fleet. Around 500,000 connected Ford commercial vehicles are already operating on Europe’s roads, with more than one million anticipated by mid-2022.
FORDLiive will be available free-of-charge, with small businesses and larger fleets able to access its benefits through the FordPass Pro app 3 and a dedicated version of the Ford Telematics tool 4 respectively.
“Our customers’ businesses stop whenever their vehicles are off the road,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “Combining the benefits of real-time connectivity with our commercial vehicle know-how, FORDLiive is the ultimate tool to optimise uptime. We won’t rest in our pursuit of 100 per cent operating uptime for all of our customers.”
