The partnership enables Telefonica to complement its telematic portfolio to cater for large corporations and small and medium sized companies.  The agreement brings Geotab’s leading fleet transport telematics solutions to Europe, with initial markets being Spain, Germany and the UK.

The solution, which includes Geotab’s plug-and-play device, offers real time fleet management and the ability to develop a number of alerts, notifications, and review driver trip and activity reports. Advanced features also include on-board diagnostics through engine indicators to return feedback, such as engine failures, or an in-depth engine fault code diagnosis; detect accidents and retrace cause of the accident; and allow add-ons such as a navigational device, NFC driver ID key, sensors and more. The technology will help businesses improve their on-road productivity, on-road safety, and ecological efficiency, in addition to optimizing fleet performance to reduce fuel costs, said Geotab in a statement.

Geotab claims that its telematics solution have been deployed in over 400,000 vehicles and currently supports 40% of the top ten fleets in North America.
