Isuzu releases updated software for truck specs
Isuzu's Simon Humphries says the ISIS software tool allows operators to buy a truck suited to their needs.

 

Isuzu has released updated software enabling customers to tailor a truck to their specific needs, calculate its performance under load and work out how much it will cost over a lifetime.

The Isuzu Sales Information System (ISIS) software can now also be used on a wider range of electronic devices.

"An essential part of the sales process for every new Isuzu truck, ISIS enables Isuzu truck dealers to utilise customer information to provide a superior, fit-for-application trucking solution," Isuzu says.

It says the latest version of the benchmark software – ISIS 8.0 – includes "optimised functionality" for the next generation of touchscreen tablets and laptops.

"Cloud" storage of quotes can also be accessed by Isuzu truck dealer sales staff on compatible devices at a later date.

Isuzu product strategy chief engineer Simon Humphries says ISIS 8.0 provides customers with a full electronic report on a truck’s performance and characteristics.

"The best Isuzu truck you can buy is always going to be the one that is best suited to your needs, and that is exactly what ISIS enables you to do," Humphries says.

"ISIS 8.0 allows full touch screen functionality on many tablets, laptops and hybrid devices operating on Windows 8.1 and above. This means the sales consultant can ‘build’ the customer their own Isuzu truck, in front of them – in any location.

"The new version of ISIS will also still function well on older desktop PCs and laptops without touch screens."

Humphries says the updated ISIS also boasts enriched vehicle graphics and content updates including the new 2015 N series models.

"All ISIS solutions generated at Isuzu truck dealerships can be stored onto a cloud server for access by customers operating on any Windows compatible device around the country," he adds.

"This also means Isuzu Australia can study what our customers are looking for and continue to fine-tune our product and service offerings into the future."

ISIS 8.0 has been updated with the new National Code of Practice for Heavy Vehicle Modifications checklist.

"Not only can ISIS provide you with detailed whole-of-life costing, we can also provide you with a full analysis of how that truck will perform once loaded and over varying road conditions," Humphries says.
