Weather Telematics, an Ottawa-based smart mobility company, has released the E-Horizon Road Weather Hazard Alert Service on the Geotab Marketplace. This service provides customers with a proactive accident avoidance system that transmits verbal and visual warnings of weather-related road hazards to both dispatchers and drivers. E-Horizon is designed to provide a full toolkit for fleet managers and telematics service providers to manage the impact of weather hazards on fleet logistics, while saving money on costly repairs and mitigating risks for drivers and fleet assets, according to the company.
The Geotab Marketplace is a complement to the MyGeotab platform that provides customers with business-focused applications and add-ons. Utilized by companies with large and small fleets, the Marketplace offers applications to more than 14,000 Geotab customers and is on track to feature over 200 third party applications by the end of the year.
“Fleet and driver safety is one of our major focal points at Geotab, which makes E-Horizon an excellent addition to the Geotab Marketplace,” said Geotab CEO Neil Cawse. “With its proactive weather alert capabilities on both a verbal and visual level, we anticipate that Marketplace users from fleets of all sizes will reap significant benefits with E-Horizon.”
