DTNA partners with Geotab for integrated telematics solution

Geotab and DTNA integration

Geotab and Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) are partnering to simplify fleet management, the companies announced Thursday.

Through the integration of direct truck data from Freightliner trucks via DTNA's data-as-a-service (DaaS) technology, and Geotab's advanced fleet management platform, MyGeotab, fleets can now benefit from a solution that marries technology and convenience, thus solving the previously complex issue of collecting and transforming data from multiple sources into actionable insights.

The companies say this integration helps to simplify mixed-fleet management, making all data from various OEMs and Geotab's GO devices available in one unified platform. Customers will be able to tailor their experience to meet their unique needs via Geotab's Marketplace of hardware and software solutions. This integrated solution is activated remotely,  requires no additional hardware, facilitates access to enterprise-grade vehicle data and empowers companies to make decisions that can enhance safety, improve overall operations and boost sustainability, the companies add.

"We are excited to welcome Geotab to our growing data-as-a-service (DaaS) ecosystem. By powering Geotab's platform with high-fidelity data from DTNA's factory-installed telematics device and innovative DaaS technology, our customers will benefit from an enterprise quality integrated system that delivers comprehensive data-driven insights," says Anil Khanna, director of connected products at DTNA. "Through the DaaS innovation, DTNA is enabling new connectivity-led solutions for the end benefit of our customers. The integration of DTNA's DaaS technology with Geotab's platform is a notable step in maximizing convenience while unlocking value for our fleets."

As fleets' needs have continued to evolve, the companies note, many OEMs are in the process of adapting and enhancing their capabilities to fully harness the rich potential of data generated by their vehicles. This partnership seeks to accelerate that journey by tapping into a reservoir of expertise and resources that the Geotab platform readily provides, DTNA and Geotab says.

"In today's rapidly evolving fleet management landscape, the need for high-quality, accessible data insights has become paramount for streamlined, efficient, and adaptive operations. Our alliance with DTNA marks a significant stride forward in simplifying the complex data-driven, decision-making process that modern fleet operations demand," says Scott Sutarik, vice president Enterprise Solutions at Geotab. "Bringing together the capabilities of DTNA's factory-installed telematics with Geotab's robust platform, we are not only facilitating seamless data integration but also fostering a relationship that will help catalyze the global movement towards intelligent, efficient, and sustainable fleet solutions. Together, we are paving the way for a future where technology and convenience can coexist."
