Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has added Geotab to its list of telematics platforms that can support SafetyDirect, the company announced at Geotab Connect 2020.
The integration will make SafetyDirect available to Geotab-equipped commercial vehicle users, including those deploying earlier versions of Geotab technology.
Rollout of the integration has begun and should be available to all fleets by the middle of 2020.
“A Geotab-equipped fleet will be able to transfer SafetyDirect data over that channel,” said TJ Thomas, Bendix director of marketing and customer solutions, Controls. “Our fleet customers spec’ing the Geotab platform have expressed great interest in this capability, and we’re excited to provide this solution. It speaks directly to our shared mission of helping fleets increase safety, productivity, and efficiency.”
SafetyDirect provides fleet operators with comprehensive feedback on their fleet and drivers, as well as videos of severe events. SafetyDirect also gives fleets key insights into common driving behaviors and trends across their operation. The system wirelessly transmits the driver performance information and event-based data to a secure web portal.
