Finding the right Geotab partner
Geotab relies on a partner ecosystem to enable the technology that we develop to be effectively represented, deployed, and to evolve with customer needs.
Geotab relies on a partner ecosystem to enable the technology that we develop to be effectively represented, deployed, and to evolve with customer needs. So how does a fleet choose which telematics provider is best for their needs in the short term AND the long run?
Here’s our view of how to sort it all out and it’s based on a quick quiz:
Will the information that is collected for your business be used by more than one department (fleet maintenance, fleet management, sales CRM, field force dispatch, risk management, claims management, government compliance, finance)?
Is your IT team looking to standardize the various software programs needed to run a business today (payroll, CRM) along with some industry specific programs (route scheduling, IFTA)?
Does your company have the in-house resources to watch the overall health of all deployed data collection telematics devices – ensuring uptime of all installed units?
Does your company have the in-house analysts to inject your collected data into your company’s evolving business objectives?
If you answered yes to ANY of the 4 questions, Geotab may well be your best choice of a technology solution to rely on. If you answered yes and have already deployed with a different telematics provider, we’re happy to talk with you about making a change. As a business, your freedom to operate and evolve is essential and that’s what the Geotab telematics operating system with our delivery partners is all about.
Our partners are diverse. Some are value-added resellers (VARs) who resell our technology with additional applications and services like fleet management, while other solution partners develop solutions as add-ins or services that any customer can choose to build on.
Our Authorized Geotab Resellers receive routine weekly training on best practices in deploying Geotab technology, business case studies, new features, and upcoming developments on the horizon. We work with our partners daily and score them on their product knowledge and performance. We expect our partners to keep you informed and evolving with the data and your objectives.
For businesses, there is a fog of telematics companies who on the surface appear to offer the same features and functions. But focus on the 4 questions and think of how together we will provide new business intelligence for you to act on.
