Designed with next-generation safety technology, you can gain incredible insight into your driver’s on-road behavior with Geotab’s informative safety management reports. Risk and safety scores are assigned to individual drivers and are based on various key indicators – speeding, seatbelt usage, harsh braking, sharp corner turns, over acceleration, and after-hours vehicle use.
In-Vehicle Driver Coaching
Making it easy for your drivers to immediately improve their on-road driving behavior, the in-vehicle audible alerts notify drivers of unsafe or potentially risky driving events. Once the driver has corrected his or her driving behavior, such a reduction in speed, the interactive in-vehicle alerts will stop beeping. Helping your firm develop a fleet-wide safety program that works, you can easily view this information in real-time email or text message alerts.
Ensuring Seatbelt Usage
Along with a world of other advanced safety feature options, our platform makes it possible for you to ensure your drivers are wearing their seatbelts. An automatic driver and passenger seatbelt detection feature reminds drivers to put their seatbelt on. This unique Geotab feature not only reduces the potential for driver injuries, but also ensures compliance with the law and your firms safety initiatives.
Instant Accident Notifications
From immediate notifications to detailed second-by-second reports, the patented recording algorithm helps you take timely action steps in the event of an accident. Through in-depth data reporting you can immediately see what occurred within the last 30 seconds leading up to the accident. If your vehicle has been hit while parked, the GO6’s unique recording technology can help you prove no-fault to your insurance provider.
Garmin Dispatch and Messaging
As a Garmin partner, Geotab has effectively transformed the GPS devices into powerful messaging and dispatching tools. You can send route information to the Garmin device which will automatically navigate drivers to the correct destination. Making it even easier to identify your drivers, you can also set driver statuses to ‘on the job’ when they arrive on site, and have the vehicle colors change on the map based on their status. Our system is affordable and effective.
Our GPS tracking system enables fleet dispatchers to communicate new jobs and optimized routes to their drivers’ on-board Garmin navigation. Verified, time-stamped messaging means employees are motivated to turn jobs around promptly.
Trips and Activity Reporting
Geotab stores your trips history information, letting you re-create any of your trips at any time, and for any date specified. The reports provide in-depth views for various events, such as time spent at the office vs. driving vs. at customer locations, helping you identify accurate work time allocations.
NFC Driver ID
Geotab has incorporated the latest in RFID technologies - Near Field Communications (NFC) - to deliver Driver Identification for drivers that switch between vehicles. Driver ID allows Management to have a full view into their drivers regardless of what vehicles they are driving - generating reports, rules, and exceptions by driver OR vehicle. Driver ID can be combined with vehicle immobilization, meaning a valid Driver ID keyfob must be touched to the reader before the vehicle will start.
