Geotab And Ford Launch Integrated Telematics Solution

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, today announced the availability of the Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles. Integrating Ford vehicle data into the MyGeotab platform, fleet managers gain access to one dedicated portal with powerful tools that can process data from vehicles with an embedded modem as well as those which require a third-party device.

Through this integration, Ford Data ServicesTM will securely transfer data from Ford vehicles with a factory installed modem (or Ford Plug-In Modem, where required) to Geotab’s cloud environment, eliminating the need for third-party hardware in Ford vehicles. Simplifying the task of mixed-fleet management, the latest solution from Ford and Geotab provides fleet managers with the ability to oversee their entire fleet in one portal while also presenting the added benefit of access to the Geotab Marketplace, a portfolio of mobile apps, hardware Add-Ons and software Add-Ins that enable Geotab customers to further customize their fleet management solution.

“Ford Data Services provides the ‘Power of Choice’ so that businesses can get manufacturer-grade vehicle information from the telematics provider of their choice, such as Geotab,” said Michelle Moody, Director at Ford Commercial Solutions. “With the launch of Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles, fleets are able to access vehicle information such as fuel usage, vehicle health and driver behavior, through the Geotab platform for vehicles with a Ford modem.”

With this solution, fleet managers will be able to access rich, proprietary, Ford-specific data available for all Ford 2020 or newer models in the United States.

“The Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles will allow fleet managers to benefit from the combination of Geotab's actionable data insights and powerful rules engine with the rich diagnostic data from Ford's factory-fitted modem,” said Geotab’s Sherry Calkins, Vice President, Strategic Partners. “This means that regardless of whether they are utilizing an embedded or externally installed telematics solution, the entire fleet can be managed from one platform."
