Integration bridges MyGeotab platform and Dynamics 365 through Microsoft Azure IoT Hub
Toronto, ON – November 27, 2017 - Geotab, an award-winning globally recognized leader in telematics technology, today announced Fleet365 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 is now available on the Geotab Marketplace. Fleet365 brings Geotab data into Dynamics 365 to provide an integrated fleet management solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Services customers.
Joining a suite of over 150 Marketplace solutions, Fleet365 transfers Geotab telematics events as field service alerts into Dynamics 365 via the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. With Fleet365, Dynamics users can access data and events from their MyGeotab platform in one, integrated location. Exception events such as customer arrivals and hard braking, vehicle fault events and diagnostics, and location and trip data are made accessible within Field Service customers’ Dynamics 365 accounts through Fleet365.
“If you are a Dynamics 365 Field Services customer and want to or are already using Geotab as your fleet management solution, Fleet365 eliminates the gap by bringing your live Geotab data into Microsoft 365,” says Ben Vollmer, Worldwide Field Service Lead, Microsoft.
Acting as a connector between Geotab and Microsoft 365, Fleet365 also allows Geotab telematics data to be consumed by the Azure IoT Hub. This enables customers to utilize their fleet’s data for additional applications including business analytics, machine learning, Microsoft Power BI or any other Microsoft offering available as part of their cloud services. Fleet365 is also available on Microsoft’s AppSource.
“The addition of Fleet365 to the Geotab Marketplace provides Geotab and Microsoft customers alike with an integratable solution to help them manage their fleets’ data,” says Joey Marlow, Geotab’s Executive Vice President of U.S. Operations. “Dynamics 365 is an undeniable leader in the field service space and we look forward to working with their team on joint telematics and field service opportunities moving forward.”
