Seattle, Wash. – December 21, 2020 - Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, has been named a silver winner in the Most Innovative App of the Year category for its OTAir solution and a bronze winner in the Marketing Campaign of the Year category for its COVID-19 resource site and information campaign. The Best in Biz Awards are a well-recognized independent business awards program and were judged this year by prominent writers from Barron's, Consumer Affairs, USA Today and Wired, among others.

"We are very excited to be continuously recognized for our commitment to innovation and safety," said Michael Gould, chief operating officer at Zonar.

Zonar's OTAir Brings Innovative Over-the-Air Programming to Commercial Vehicles

The Zonar OTAir mobile app offers vehicles with Cummins engines over-the-air programming using a smartphone or tablet devices – on the go, just like commercial trucking. Cummins Connected Software Updates through Zonar's OTAir app allow customers with Cummins engines more control and convenience over the performance and management of their fleets, saving time and costs associated with traditional calibration methods. The collaboration between Zonar and Cummins delivers on Zonar's commitment to providing innovative solutions that ensure fleets with Cummins engines perform at optimal levels.

Zonar OTAir enables maintenance personnel to update several vehicles at once in a yard, and drivers can update their vehicles when they're stopped during the day, whether during rest breaks or as part of pre-trip inspections. Besides convenience, Zonar OTAir offers Cummins engine users other benefits, such as reduced downtime, cost savings, increased vehicle health, ease-of-use, rapid updates and increased fleet control.
