Volvo adding QR codes to all new trucks

| January 10, 2013

Volvo announced this week in Nashville, Tenn., that starting in April it will be incorporating QR Codes into all new trucks in an effort to reduce downtime for owners and drivers and increase efficiency of technicians.

Technicians will be able to scan QR Codes with phones or tablets and download information rather than wasting technicians’ time inputting vehicle data. Once scanned, a truck’s service records will be available to the technician via the company’s MVASIST (Mack Volvo automated service information system, introduced in 2008).

For more information on Volvo’s initiative, see Overdrive sister site CCJ‘s article.
