Control over your vehicle fleet


Connect is compact and easy to use; it is a Windows-based vehicle maintenance package that has been developed from the ground up for vehicle fleets of all sizes. Connect provides you with direct visibility of the maintenance and costs of your complete vehicle fleet and your parts stock.

Connect is the right tool for the job!

Connect is a maintenance package designed to manage repair costs, maintenance schedules, parts stock and sourcing for an entire fleet of vehicles. This program does not require any investment in high-performance computer systems. It is user-friendly and uses barcode scanning to reduce the likelihood of input errors, enabling you to work more efficiently. The maintenance information relating to your vehicle fleet can be accessed quickly and easily at all times, regardless of time or place.

Your immediate benefits:

  • Immediate and clear insight into maintenance and costs for your vehicle fleet
  • Simple, efficient and quick to use
  • Information is always up-to-date
  • No system administration or maintenance
  • Data management by a leading IT company, always available; virus-free, so no risk of data loss.

Connect has been specially developed for DAF Trucks working in co-operation with our customers. Together, we have the expertise and the power to develop innovative and progressive solutions for the transport sector. An unbeatable combination!

Connect is ideal for customers who maintain their vehicle fleet themselves. As a fleet owner with your own repair facilities, you will be able to make the best use of this workshop management program.

A good example here is MCB Nederland: The company has been working with Connect for some time now, to its complete satisfaction.

"Connect is a program that is simple to use and saves us time in practice. A major benefit is that we are able to record everything in the program that happens with the truck fleet. Based on the history that we continue to build up day by day, we can carry out analyses at any time on costs incurred and potential savings. In order to make the most of working with Connect, it is important that the database is as complete as possible from the outset. Once all vehicles, employees, maintenance schedules, parts etc. had been entered by the Connect team, we began to reap the rewards of this system immediately."
