As forward-thinking managers, you have your eye on the future and where the business is going. Are you also taking note of who will be working alongside you on that path into the future? People are the engine of the organization, so it’s worthwhile to take some time to consider leadership development among your management tasks.
So you’re working with data to measure and optimize your fleet program. Have you also added data cleaning to your routine? Here is a quick overview to get you started.
The team recently attended GEOTAB CONNECT 2018 in Toronto, Ontario from June 11-13. We were extremely excited to meet and collaborate with fellow Marketplace partners, who are industry leaders in their respective fields. We were also anxiously awaiting new developments and innovations in the fleet management industry.
As a fleet telematics company that promotes safety and compliance for all of our customers, Geotab helps companies identify aggressive driving and correct the risky behavior, allowing them to increase the safety of their employees while reducing cost and risk within the company. By tracking parameters such as speeding, harsh cornering, and harsh acceleration — to name but a few — fleet managers can begin to detect some of the behaviors that can lead to safety and compliance issues. With this information, managers can provide coaching and feedback to those specific drivers.
Being a great fleet manager doesn’t come easy. You are responsible, not only for the operation of the fleet but for the safety of the drivers and others that use the roads, to mention a few.
Telematics makes for a great business tool by being able to identify single safety events, such as a driver speeding or not wearing a seat belt. All this helps fleets to train and work with drivers on reducing safety risks. But telematics can bring even more to the table by helping unfold a larger view on fleet safety.
Safety on the job is top priority for law enforcement and first responders. Teams in the security industry need technology that is dependable, secure, and provides real-time data. Geotab’s secure and sophisticated fleet management solutions offer insight, visibility, and actionable alerts. The latter transform operations and ensure driver and civilian safety.
Geotab has recently partnered with Integrated Software Solutions Company, Online Intelligence. Online Intelligence is the leading supplier of Enterprise Risk solutions across the African continent. The integration has been focused on their ‘Signal Tower’ Software. Signal Tower is a high volume, hardware independent alarm monitoring and management system. The integration has been designed in order to create the First Responder Solution.
Geotab’s Open Platform Fleet Management Solution has integrated with the Mobileye Advanced Driver System to bring driving schools and their learners a safer, more comprehensive learning experience.
Keeping drivers on board is necessary to stop the churn of solid, reliable drivers moving from one fleet to another – or even worse, leaving the industry all together. When looking at truck driver retention strategies, fleets should consider telematics.

Why do accidents occur? Reckless driving? Unforeseen circumstances? Unfamiliar territory?
