Tavant, a leading provider of Service Lifecycle Management solutions, and Daimler Truck North America LLC the largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer in North America and a leading producer of medium-duty trucks and specialized commercial vehicles, are thrilled to announce their latest partnership to transform DTNA’s service operations to enhance customer experience and dealer productivity. This collaboration signifies a significant expansion of a decade-long global technology partnership between Daimler Truck Group and Tavant.

DTNA sought a cutting-edge solution to modernize its existing warranty system with advanced features for its employees and partners.

This partnership reaffirms our commitment to providing advanced, customer-centric solutions to deliver value-driven outcomes and support DTNA’s strategic goals.
