Geotab’s intuitive, full-featured solutions help businesses better manage their drivers and vehicles by extracting accurate and actionable intelligence from real-time and historical trips data. With more than 600 million data points collected by Geotab devices and delivered to the platform per day, Geotab helps companies access actionable business intelligence and benchmarking data accessible to improve productivity, optimize fleets through the reduction of fuel consumption, enhance driver safety, and achieve stronger compliance to regulatory changes. The company’s products are represented and sold worldwide through its Authorized Geotab Resellers.

 

Geotab provides a number of valuable IoT products and services, and when it comes to fleet management, it all starts in the vehicle. The Geotab GO7 is a small form-factor device that simply plugs directly into a vehicle’s OBDII port, and starts tracking as soon as driving begins, providing second-by-second data accuracy of ignition, trip distance/time, idling and speed. Fleet managers can audit use and identify risky driving habits, preventing accidents and improving safety.  If a vehicle or truck does not have an OBDII, an adapter can be used instead. The installation process is quick, easy and doesn’t require any special tools or the assistance of a professional installer.

 

A second product of note is MyGeotab, web-based fleet management software that is available to all Geotab customers under any feature package: Base, Pro and ProPlus. It takes the complexity out of collecting data and transforms it into useful information that businesses can act on. For example, most Geotab customers want to understand how fuel consumption is impacted by driving habits, time of day spent driving, and the vehicle make and model. Furthermore, MyGeotab incorporates a rules feature that is configured and ready for use with a simple ON selection. Fleet managers can get started quickly by selecting or customizing rules, assisting them in measuring events surrounding five core areas: productivity, safety, fleet optimization, compliance, and expandability. Once a rule is selected, managers can choose from a range of reliable notification options, from email or pop-ups to in-vehicle coaching and alerts.

 

As a robust complement to MyGeotab, the Geotab Marketplace provides an extensive ecosystem of valuable business-focused applications and add-ons to more than 14,000 Geotab customers, featuring over 200 optional solutions. Valuable to businesses of all sizes, the Geotab Marketplace enables users to significantly extend the use-case of their fleet management and telematics services, and further reap the benefits of the MyGeotab platform.
