Commitment towards Product Integrity and Safety
At Geotab, innovation is driven by five core pillars: Safety, Productivity, Fleet Optimization, Compliance, and Expandability. Their goal is to develop tools that help businesses better manage their fleets, and also create a means of making society a more productive and safer place. Telematics and vehicle-integrated technology can address large-scale challenges such as carbon emissions, traffic congestion, and road safety. No matter how the industry changes, Geotab will always stay true to its commitment to product integrity and safety.
From their inception, Geotab remained focused on their core strengths of software and product development. They grew profitably and organically by outsourcing all non-core components of the business. By setting up channel distribution instead of selling direct to customers, they concentrated on the product roadmap and leveraged best of breed sales partners to engage customers. They have now created a sales and product distribution ecosystem that reaches diverse markets and is international. Staying focused on their core competencies and remaining profitable without private investment made it possible to evolve and lead. Geotab concentrates on doing what’s best for the long term, for the company, partners, and above all, customers.
Big Data Boosts Fleet Optimization
Telematics will become more and more important to the way business is done. In particular, organizations will rely on Big Data to gain a more accurate picture of the health and efficiency of their fleet. Big Data enhances fleet optimization by providing visibility of fuel usage, traffic conditions, weather patterns, etc. Geotab is leading the way in helping fleets take advantage of Big Data, by making it possible to collect and analyze quality data, which results in more informed decision-making.
