Fleet managers face complex challenges with issues such as asset management, freight capacity, transparency and compliance with government regulations. Geotab has emerged as a leader in using innovative technology to create data-driven solutions for fleet management, asset tracking and reporting, DOT compliance and safety and preventative maintenance.
Geotab systems make fleets more efficient, effective and safe. The company’s telematics solutions are also giving fleet managers an edge on the competition even as they make a safer environment for drivers.
Here are some of the areas where Geotab has emerged as a leader in the industry.
Geotab Fleet Management Software
Fleet management software gives managers the chance to build upon the foundation of their software system. Geotab offers powerful software tools that generate new opportunities for growth, allowing businesses to leverage the power of their data. Available in seven languages, the MyGeotab software system enables companies to better interpret and extract useful information from data. Key features of MyGeotab include:
- Advanced reporting. Tailor reports to meet the needs of your fleet.
- Driver behavior management. In-vehicle feedback and coaching tools.
- Engine data. This includes engine RPM, engine light, seat belt, odometer, engine hours, emissions, vehicle identification number (VIN), and vehicle battery voltage.
- GPS vehicle tracking. Includes real-time location and trip history.
- Route optimization. Plan the best route, compare routes, and compare planned route vs. actual route.
- Engine health and maintenance. Provides alerts when potential issues are detected, schedules and provides reminders on proactive vehicle maintenance.
Asset Tracking and Reporting
These systems allow for tracking of containers, trailers, generators – any equipment you want to track. This allows fleet managers to know the real-time location of all assets and is a powerful tool for recovery of lost assets. The system uses the Internet of Things, attaching a rugged, weatherized sensor to the equipment that transmits a signal to your computer system. The system also provides a complete history on the location and movement of assets.
DOT Compliance Solutions
All fleet managers know that complying with federal Department of Transportation regulations is critical to their job. With the tracking and data collection tools in Geotab ELD, compiling information for the required Hours of Service (HOS), Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR), and driver identification is convenient and straightforward. The system minimizes violations with an alert system that includes in-app driver warnings and real-time alerts. Geotab makes it easier to comply with DOT regulations, improve driver safety and boost productivity.
Safety and Preventative Maintenance
Geotab’s fleet maintenance software allows managers to receive alerts about potential issues and prioritize maintenance through active diagnostic faults and engine data. The system allows managers to know about issues before they become critical. Geotab also offers a driver scorecard and coaching tools to improve driver performance and reduce wear and tear on the engine.
Improving safety is also a priority with Geotab. Dashboard monitors and vehicle data allow fleet managers to get to know a driver’s habits and provide coaching in areas that need improvement. Drivers benefit from alert systems in the cabin and advanced collision avoidance systems. Dash cameras also provide video that offers insights into what caused a collision or other accident. Geotab has become one of the top fleet management solutions providers because of the variety and quality of their systems, which make management of fleets more efficient and effective than ever. It’s allowed managers to develop more profitable, and safer, commercial fleets.
