Users can upgrade the inexpensive standard Pro Plan to take advantage of a suite of new features that unlock the full potential of MyGeotab
Toronto, Ontario — Febuary 17, 2016 – Geotab, the go-to leader in telematics with more than 450,000 vehicles in 70 countries on its roster of users, today announced that the comprehensive ProPlus monthly plan now includes the Hours of Service (HOS) tools needed by fleets to meet the new electronic logging device (ELD) regulations. In the past, Geotab charged separately for this feature, but in line with an approach to deliver more value and simple selections, it is now included with the ProPlus plan. This plan offers one of the most comprehensive fleet management solutions available today.
“Certain customers require up-to-the-second data for increasing safety, compliance and operational efficiencies,” said Geotab CEO, Neil Cawse.“ ProPlus provides three times more data for GPS fleet management than previous plans. This increase in speed and quantity of data points allows for the enabling of animated near live vehicles on a map and better utilization of our in-vehicle driver coaching solution GO TALK.”
With the recent release of FMCSA's Hours of Service Final Rule, drivers will be required to move to Electronic Driver Logs by December 2017. Geotab Drive, Geotab’s HOS ELD and vehicle inspection application featured in ProPlus, helps to make the transition as seamless as possible. Featured on the Geotab Marketplace and available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for Android, Geotab Drive connects to the Geotab GO Device to provide an automated process for creating accurate records of the time a commercial driver spends in each duty status: On Duty Not Driving, Driving, Sleeper Berth, and Off Duty. The system is easy to use and offers drivers more time to complete daily tasks by simplifying the burden of documenting time.
With the ProPlus plan, Geotab customers can now take advantage of:
- Active Tracking for live vehicle tracking on the map
- More current and accurate GO TALK for spoken word feedback to drivers to alert them of dangerous driving behaviors
- Support for usage of high data IOXs, which is ideal for temperature tracking and collision avoidance systems
- Limited Lifetime Warranty, which includes free device replacement to reduce impact of future wireless network changes
- Geotab Drive HOS
- Garmin HOS, Messaging and Routing
