Enabling location, driver safety performance analysis, time and attendance, customer management, and route assistance, Global Resource Group is able to service customers who desire a bundled, all-inclusive solution at a low monthly investment by utilizing Geotab products. How reliable is Geotab? Geotab is the #1 supplier of telematics to enterprise fleets and is implemented in some of the world’s largest fleets.
Geotab provides turnkey hardware and software solutions, stating it works closely with its re-seller network to provide customers with a “whole-company approach” to telematics. Fleets can utilize Geotab software and hardware platform to help maintain their fleet maintenance budget even while fuel costs increase, according to the company.
Based in Canada, the company now operates on a new platform that enables fleet managers to receive e-mail notifications when vehicles exhibit high engine fault and low battery voltage and coolant; monitor vehicles that park offsite or in branch locations to reduce unplanned fleet expense; and perform fuel-saving options ranging from idling reduction to mileage optimization.
The GO5 hardware device, Geotab’s newest product line addition, utilizes plug-and-play technology. It is self-contained and can be self-installed. Geotab has also added a new G-Force sensor to better profile vehicle and driver performance. The interactive audible alert in the vehicle informs drivers when they are excessively idling, accelerating too rapidly, or braking too hard so they can drive more safely and fuel-efficiently.
Another feature the Checkmate software platform provides customers with is user customization of the 30-plus possible reports to meet specific fleet needs. In most cases, customers can create a performance dashboard chart that is displayed on their software or e-mail it to themselves.
