Geotab Announces New DEV Channel for Developers Looking to Join the Telematics Ecosystem
Developers of M2M and IoT Applications for Business use of Telematics Now Have an Online Forum with Video Tutorial Content
Toronto, Ontario – July 15, 2015 – Geotab, a leading global provider of premium quality, end-to-end telematics technology, today announced the launch of the Geotab DEV Channel.
The Geotab DEV Channel is a video site that assists business software application developers in their use of the Geotab Software Development Kit (SDK). The DEV Channel complements the existing resources available to developers who want to leverage a world leading telematics tool.
“The Geotab DEV Channel is meant to encourage developers to focus not only on a leading dataset that collects over 600 million pieces of telematics data daily on behalf of 12,000 business customers, it helps connect developers to real world business problems to encourage building relevant applications or add-ons that the global business community is looking for,” says Colin Sutherland, VP Global Sales for Geotab. “Developers are a key focus for Geotab in the ongoing pursuit of advancement and innovation across industries that utilize our telematics solution,” Colin Sutherland continues.
As an example of third party developers working with the Geotab, Navistar recently integrated Geotab data into the Navistar OnCommand Connection program and commended Geotab for having a very extensible API in terms of being able to attach new data points (PGN’s) to the feed as needs change.
They viewed Geotab’s extensibility of data as future proof and for its ease-of use and will be showcased at the Geotab BUILD Marketplace Conference to happen at CTIA Wireless (Sept 9-11) together with several other third party applications that have been created using the Geotab SDK.
The new DEV Channel program is a further demonstration of Geotab’s commitment to providing customers with leading end-to-end telematics technology. The MyGeotab platform, an intuitive, full-featured platform assists businesses of all sizes to better manage drivers and vehicles by extracting accurate, actionable intelligence from real-time and historical trips data to improve productivity, optimize fleets through the reduction of fuel consumption, enhance driver safety and achieve stronger compliance to regulatory changes.
More than 600 million telematics data-points are collected on MyGeotab every day, deeming the platform as one of the world’s leading global telematics platforms, in which unique data collection from vehicles can be used for intelligent benchmarking to improve overall performance and safety for any fleet.
