SmartGPS, our telematics solution, combines the same GeoTab technology found in today’s top fleets with the power and ease of our innovative, web-based SmartRisk platform.

Most importantly, we make it easy to turn data into documented, behavior-changing actions like training, in-cab alerts and one-on-one conversations.

SmartGPS is just one part of an integrated suite that also includes industry-leading tools across the entire driver lifecycle: pre-hire screening, on-the-road monitoring, a comprehensive online training library, automated MVRs, a distracted driving solution, and more.
