Toronto, ON - March 11, 2019 – Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, today announced the availability of its new GO9 telematics device. Joining the company’s award-winning suite of fleet management solutions, the GO9 is Geotab’s newest product designed to help businesses better manage their fleets. With better acceleration tracking, a more accurate GPS, better support for vehicle-generated data and for new vehicle types, Geotab’s GO9 device is designed to enable businesses to drive more information from their fleet.
Maintaining its small form-factor design and ability to self-configure for most vehicles, Geotab’s GO9 device offers current and prospective customers a solution that quickly becomes an effective business tool and helps to lead their fleet into the future. Complementing a wider range of vehicles compared to previous iterations of the device, the launch of the GO9 helps to position Geotab to effectively expand globally and be utilized in new vehicle types including electric vehicles.
“We are excited to have launched the next generation of Geotab’s flagship product,” said Neil Cawse, CEO, Geotab. “We see this as one of the most important iterations in the history of our product line as the GO9 not only makes running your fleet simpler and more productive, but it allows Geotab to extend our capabilities and expand our presence globally.”
With increased code space, memory and a more powerful processor, the GO9 enables fleets to do more, allowing for the continued addition of new features such as fuel reports as well as the introduction of add-ins for years to come. Additional new features and benefits include:
The GO9 device's cryptographic module is FIPS 140-2 validated, a milestone achieved by the company for all GO devices in its suite of solutions earlier this year. FIPS 140-2 validation is the benchmark for cryptographic modules protecting sensitive information in computer and telecommunication systems for U.S. Government, Canadian Government, and Military use.
“We have always prided ourselves on providing our customers with the best possible solution to help them better manage their fleets,” added Cawse. “The new GO9 device will not only enable them to improve productivity, efficiency and safety of their fleets and drivers but is a platform on which we will continue to add new features and capabilities in a unique and innovative way.”
