Using telematics technology like Geotab’s, Sutherland says, can help fleets measure and improve vehicle and driver safety, reduce fuel costs, optimize fuel usage, and streamline the work of fleet managers — who already have their hands full with day to day operations.

Your driver, Tim, hops into the company vehicle at 8:30 am and ends his shift at 4:30 pm. During his shift, the vehicle generated data raging from ignition, seatbelt usage, speedometer, gear change, brake, fuel level, fuel fill up, engine warnings, location, vehicle diagnostics, RPM, accident log & other rich & accurate vehicle data. Now multiply that by over a million vehicles driving across the globe, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, that’s a lot of information! GEOTAB collects about 1 billion records a day, this allows Geotab to derive knowledge and insight for clients and the telematics industry.

Tracking vs. Fleet Telematics… How to choose?

By definition, Vehicle Tracking includes the automatic collection of vehicle location data, combined with software that collects these fleet data to provide the user with comprehensive info on the location of all their vehicles. Most Vehicle Tracking devices make use of GPS and/or GLONASS for accurate vehicle location. This GPS position will then be plotted on an electronic map, such as Google Maps, for the user to easily determine where their vehicles are at a specific moment in time. As such, the primary goal of Vehicle Tracking is to monitor the location of a business’ fleet.
