Agents help diagnose issues and use Mack ASIST to schedule repairs and confirm that needed parts are in stock and ready to install, all while a truck is still on the road. GuardDog Connect also enables Mack Over The Air on Mack models equipped with Mack 2017 and newer engines to deliver software updates directly to customers with minimal interruptions to their operations. Mack has also certified its 117th dealer location as a Mack Certified Uptime Center, an accreditation signaling that the dealer has met demanding requirements to improve service, increase uptime and keep trucks on the road.
