TORONTO & BARCELONA – Mobile World Congress, Hall 3, Stand 3J20 – March 2, 2015 – Geotab, an industry leading telematics engineering company, today announced that it will be showcasing its newest telematics technology and make it available to all attendees to experience a simulated end-to-end in-vehicle telematics solution.

The interactive display is designed to provide attendees with an in-vehicle driving experience, complete with verbal driver coaching, interactive buzzers and alerts, and driver identification tools. The display will detail the vehicle trip data in MyGeotab, the company’s cloud-based software platform, to indicate what the fleet manager or dispatcher sees back at the office. Features include productivity management, fleet optimization, driver safety, and compliance.

Geotab’s entire end-to-end solution, including the GO7 OBD-II hardware and MyGeotab software platform, has been named a finalist by the Global Mobile Awards judges in the category of “Mobile Innovation for Automotive.” The award ceremony, hosted by John Cleese, will take place from 14:30 - 16:30 on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 in Hall 4, Auditorium 1 at the Fira Gran Via.
