A Texas research firm has ranked 60 providers of fleet tracking solutions on an index that includes Verizon Connect, AT&T (Fleet Complete), Spireon (FleetLocate), Geotab, and Omnitracs at the top of the list.
The telematics and connected-vehicle companies appeared on the CompassIntel A-List Index released on Dec. 19. The San Antonio-area firm sought to rank companies that provide products and services to support the fixed and mobile tracking of fleets including vehicles that support in the delivery of products and goods, service/maintenance/repair, and other trucking (light and heavy commercial vehicles) and transport solutions, according to a release.
Products would include use of GPS/satellite, sensor modules, camera systems, user dashboards, software, and other technologies to track, trace, monitor, and locate fleets as well as provide onboard intelligence and fleet information.
Compass Intelligence narrowed its scope to 60 companies from an initial list of several thousand. It eventually ranked the top 25 after assigning each company a score based on "a proprietary research framework and model evaluating company performance and metrics, product portfolio and features, market and brand strength, client successes, and other metrics," according to the firm.
Other companies that made the top 10 include Inseego, T-Mobile, Vodafone, and Sprint.
The next group of 10 included TomTom, Telefonica, Globalstar, Alphabet, Trimble, NexTraq, SkyBitz, GPS Insight, BlackBerry Radar, and Pedigree Technologies. The final five included FleetUp, Lytx, Zubie, Arvento, and GPS Trackit.
