Toronto, ON – June 23, 2020 –  Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, today announced the North American launch of its Geotab Public Works solution. The all-in-one solution offers fleet managers full visibility into the operational data of all government vehicle types on one single platform and provides the toolsets to effectively remain compliant, reduce costs and maintain road safety.


Designed to help government agencies better manage vehicles such as salt spreaders, snowplows, street sweepers and waste management vehicles, the Geotab Public Works solution is integrated with an extensive number of spreader controllers. The solution is built to support key government business drivers including material management, compliance, accountability and liability.  Providing public works departments with improved fleet management capabilities, fleets can utilize the solution to more accurately measure material usage, such as salt, allowing government fleet managers to feel more confident that community roads are not over- or underserviced. With Geotab Public Works, government fleets are better able to control costs while reducing the impact that excessive material usage can have on the environment.


“Empowered by an industry-leading number of spreader controller integrations alongside various geospatial capabilities, the Geotab Public Works solution is designed to help government fleets optimize both their seasonal and ongoing fleet operations,” said Chris Jackson, Associate VP of Business Development, Public Works and Smart Cities. “Spreader controllers provide fleet managers with rich insights that can help government agencies ensure that their fleets are adequately servicing roads without sacrificing the health of the environment.”


Available as a configurable Add-In on the MyGeotab platform, the Geotab Public Works solution allows governments, including municipalities of all sizes, to customize their database to help meet the specific needs of their fleet. In addition, users can add further value and customization through access to the Geotab Marketplace, an extensive portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-Ins and hardware Add-Ons that enable Geotab customers to further customize their fleet management solution.


“As many governments continue to look for ways to optimize their operations, Geotab Public Works is the type of robust, scalable, secure solution that provides real value by giving government fleet managers and local constituents unprecedented visibility to their public services,” said Jean Pilon-Bignell, Vice President of Business Development, Government and Smart Cities at Geotab. “With high-frequency, near real-time reporting, the Geotab Public Works solution allows governments to know where their fleets are and how they are operating at all times, enabling fleet managers to more efficiently leverage their fleet data to provide better and more transparent services to their residents.”
