Geotab Opens Platform To Third-Party Telematics Devices

April 06, 2017 - Press Release

Geotab has launched its Third-Party Device plan, which allows customers to bring a third-party telematics device and enjoy the advanced notifications, reporting, dashboards, and data analytics offered by the MyGeotab software, according to the company.

This new plan is an open Internet of Things (IoT) platform. By treating the platform as the foundation, customers have the ability to leverage the functionality of the MyGeotab platform without overhauling their existing telematics device implementations.

"We believe that regardless of the telematics device, fleets should have the ability to use the fleet management platform that best addresses the needs of their business," said Neil Cawse, Geotab's CEO. "An open approach has always been our focus with a SDK and open APIs already available. Taking a hardware agnostic approach was the logical next step."

Once third-party telematics devices are integrated, all devices can be viewed together through a single MyGeotab interface. In addition to the rules engine and reporting, these devices will send data to MyGeotab including vehicle position, speed, date and time, ignition state, and engine diagnostics depending on the third-party device capabilities on the new rate plan.
