Vodafone Business and Geotab have agreed a strategic collaboration to create a new fleet management tool.
The partnership combines Vodafone’s autonomous connectivity and service delivery capabilities and its expertise in vehicle safety and security with Geotab’s telematics platform to create Vodafone Business Fleet Analytics.
This will give customers access to vehicle data and insights to monitor and enhance the safety, performance and security of their drivers.
The companies say the tool also has the potential to allow organisations to develop shared mobility solutions, where companies rent their vehicles to the public or other businesses when not in use.
Vodafone says this has possibilities for fleet in a range of sectors, such as car rental and leasing, construction and heavy equipment management.
Gion Baker, CEO of Vodafone Automotive, said: “Creating safer and smarter mobility for people everywhere is a shared vision for Vodafone Automotive and Geotab.
“By working together, we will not only support our customers in boosting the efficiency and safety of their vehicles, but will also help introduce new and sustainable mobility models.”
Neil Cawse, CEO of Geotab, added: “Together, as we continue to invest in electric vehicles, big data and connected vehicle solutions, we believe this partnership helps to deliver a complete solution by combining the strengths of each organisation to benefit customers and society.”
Vodafone Business Fleet Analytics will launch in all European markets currently served by Vodafone Automotive, starting with the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
- Geotab has announced that it is a headline sponsor of Fleet Live, which is the Fleet Live is the UK’s leading event for the fleet management community and gives decision-makers the chance to face future challenges and opportunities together with two days of learning, sharing and networking. This takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, on October 8 and 9.
