Fleet managers benefit from responsive add-on to intuitive web platform.

According to a Telecommunications Industry Association survey, nearly half of U.S. businesses use IoT technology, with usage expected to grow by more than 90 percent within two years. As a result, leading telematics solutions provider, Geotab, has launched the MyGeotab App, allowing fleet managers that are often off-site to manage their fleets from an internet-enabled mobile phone or tablet device.

A new generation of technology has become a vital resource for many fleet management and transport services. By on-boarding mobile devices into their businesses, fleet managers can ensure their operations are streamlined and running more efficiently.

The implementation of fleet management software and mobile applications has quickly become the industry standard. Mobile apps are helping fleet and transportation businesses meet their operational goals by providing GPS technology, in-cab communications, fleet tracking, fuel management, and mileage tracking. Implementing these technologies has given companies a competitive edge and has helped to improve customer service, capacity, and on-time delivery.

“At Geotab, we understand that regardless of business size, having the flexibility to easily and effectively manage fleets via a mobile app is a necessity,” said Geotab CEO Neil Cawse. “The MyGeotab software app offers users a heightened level of convenience that translates into better operational efficiency, whether in-office or on the go.”

MyGeotab includes advanced fleet and driver reporting; customized rule creation for events like speeding or idling; real-time GPS vehicle tracking on a map; driver behavior management; engine health and maintenance monitoring; route optimization; and open platform, allowing for additional data integration and customization.
