Telematics in Asia-Pacific highlighted at Global Fleet Summit APAC

Attendees learned best practices for finding, selecting, and implementing the right solutions for their fleet and mobility business strategies.
Connected solutions are the key to logistics efficiency
David Brown, Geotab’s Channel Manager, Southeast Asia, led an engaging break-out session on Geotab’s Connected Solutions, where he explained why connected solutions are key to logistical efficiency, now and in the future. He explained how telematics can help companies maximize driver safety and reduce operational costs.

Brown also highlighted Geotab’s custom integrations:
“You can easily integrate your company’s TMS, ERP or other operating systems, with third-party programs through the MyGeotab Software Development Kit (SDK).”
