Integrating with Innovation
As a key focus for the business, Geotab is continuing to push its emphasis on electric vehicles. In addition to integration with Tesla, BMW and Kia/Hyundai, we are having a number of exciting conversations with more electric vehicle manufacturers and participating on projects supporting sustainable infrastructure.
Another important partnership for the business is that with Adgero S.A.S. which uses Geotab telematics as part of its Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) on rigids and semi-trailers to gather information on fuel consumption, vehicle performance and geo-localisation. This data allows Adgero S.A.S. to offer a real value-add to its HGV operators clients through maximum fuel economy gains.
Working Towards a Greener Economy
Geotab recognizes innovation, development and evolution as necessary to staying ahead, and this is reflected in the organization’s core values of “developing for the future,” “embracing change” and “innovation.” These values also extend to the available solutions, which are designed and built so they can be used for decades thanks to the quality of work happening at each stage of the development process.
Geotab also acknowledges its environmental responsibility with regards to protecting and promoting a green economy and is continuing efforts in the innovation and efficient use of materials to help preserve the earth’s natural resources.
