Join the forefront of innovation, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).

Geotab is committed to developing brand new ways for businesses to continuously benefit from a data-driven environment and with the help of actionable insights. To help align with these goals, we have introduced Analytics Lab, which is now available as a default in MyGeotab 2102 or higher versions. 

What is the Geotab Analytics Lab?

Analytics Lab is a testing environment that allows fleet customers and Partners to engage with and influence the direction of Geotab’s data solutions. The experiments are shared in the form of Apps, or as APIs (application programming interface) hosted within the API Explorer app. The list of data experiments is always evolving.

Available experiments and benefits  

Fleet managers can take advantage of the following currently available experiments to make informed business decisions, gain a better understanding of their fleet performance and uncover trends. The experiments available will change over time as new ones are added. Keep checking back to see if there is one that interests you. 

Safety Benchmark: Investigate how your fleet safety score compares to similar fleets in the industry

For fleet managers who need to define and measure safety goals, Safety Benchmarks provides actionable insights by analyzing your fleet’s safety performance and comparing it to peer groups. 

 

Unlike typical benchmarking calculations that depend on surveys, the benchmarking analysis dynamically creates peer groups using artificial intelligence (AI). Therefore, the safety benchmarks are fact-based and empirical to help fleet managers make data-driven decisions.
