Geotab is now offering its MyGeotab platform for Ford vehicles in several European countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy.
Enabling the integration of Ford Data Services into the Geotab Integrated Solution is done without an installation of additional hardware required and provides customers with a single unified view of their entire fleet, which is designed to help increase visibility and boost productivity.
Through this integration, Ford Data Services will securely transfer data from enrolled Ford vehicles to Geotab’s cloud environment, eliminating the need for third-party hardware in Ford vehicles, according to the telematics provider. The Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles allows fleet operators to access their fleet’s data from within the MyGeotab platform while also gaining access to Ford-specific data available for all 2020 Ford models and beyond.
“Through this integration with Geotab, our hope is that customers across Europe will be even better equipped to deliver best-of-breed fleet management, spurring further innovation and driving down costs,” said Dave Phatak, the director of Ford Commercial Solutions Europe.
Built with both security and privacy as a priority, the Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles is compliant with the European Union’s GDPR principles.
Customers will also benefit from data-driven insights and electric vehicle (EV) capabilities as well as the ability to create custom rules, dashboards and alerts when using Ford Commercial Solutions data in MyGeotab. Users can also expand the solution's functionality further with access to the Geotab Marketplace, a growing portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-ins and hardware Add-ons ranging from asset tracking to apps for managing maintenance, fuel tracking and EV battery state-of-charge and degradation.
“We look forward to continuing to work with OEMs, like Ford, as we look to expand these essential relationships around the globe,” added Sherry Calkins, VP of Strategic Partners.
