Toronto, Ontario (September 19, 2023) - Geotab Inc. (“Geotab”), a global leader in connected vehicle technology and a member of the Google Cloud Ready - Sustainability program, launched its video series “Sustainability On Board-The Power Of Data Insights” that shares insights on the trajectory of sustainability outcomes. Featuring Michael Clark, Vice President, North America Regions at Google Cloud and Neil Cawse, Founder and CEO of Geotab, the video series puts a spotlight on “management by measurement” as the demand for accountability and transparency in delivering on sustainability goals continues to grow.

 

“Leaders are seeking pragmatic guidance from partners they can trust as their sustainability journey evolves to include improved reporting, regulatory requirements and greater board oversight,” said Neil Cawse, Founder and CEO of Geotab. “Geotab is supporting customers across the globe to improve their business performance and deliver better outcomes for the planet with quality data insights. We are particularly excited with the potential of generative AI and large language models, where we are seeing faster speed to insight and greater transparency, which hinges on quality data inputs.”

 

Geotab is a global leader in connected transportation solutions and is using data and insights to effectively plan, manage and measure the impact of fleet electrification and sustainable transportation, and Google Cloud’s sustainable infrastructure creates a multiplier effect. Together, Geotab and Google Cloud have created a sophisticated solution focused on the climate and ESG ambitions of our mutual customers.

 

“Users of Geotab’s climate-focused solutions will benefit from new capabilities, powered by Google Cloud’s generative AI capabilities,” said Michael Clark, Vice President, North America Regions at Google Cloud. “By building with Google Cloud’s powerful models, Geotab can enable its customers to activate more sustainable transportation operations and address ESG goals that were not otherwise attainable.”

 

For fleet operations, the availability of dependable data sources for decision-making and reporting is essential to meeting sustainability goals and ESG reporting requirements. There is more to be accomplished, a survey conducted by Geotab among fleet managers reveals that 73% of respondents rely on fleet management solutions and telematics data to monitor and enhance fleet sustainability, yet only 24% utilize telematics data to facilitate regulatory reporting. Against the backdrop of mounting regulatory and public pressure for accelerated carbon reduction, harnessing data insights for decision making and measuring success has become even more critical.

Geotab was also honored to receive the Google Cloud Cross Customer Award - Communications and Service Providers Industry, announced earlier this week. For more, visit this link.
