The telematics software company hopes to provide fleet operators with a turnkey connectivity solution from their collaboration with BMW.
The partnership also hopes to enable valuable analytics to feed into sustainability efforts as well as the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) report, which will be mandatory for certain companies in the EU from 2024 onwards.
The Geotab platform processes the collected data sets into useful information, providing fleet managers with all the insights they need to better understand the performance of their fleet. It also provides fleet operators with a single point of access to make informed decisions and provide connectivity solutions for fleets of all sizes.
The software integrates fully electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) as well as conventional internal combustion engines (ICE) and takes the relevant data points for each powertrain into account.
Christoph Ludewig, Vice President OEM Europe at Geotab, said:
“Cooperating with a major globally renowned and leading brand like BMW Group marks an important milestone in our strategy to become a trusted partner for OEMs.
OEMs do not have to build their own infrastructures for data analysis and visualisation but can rather feed their data into the telematics platform via the cloud using modern APIs. Customers still receive all OEM-specific data pointsㅡ optimally processed and integrated with other fleet data to provide a rounded, 360-degree view of their fleet operations.”
The MyGeotab platform can now integrate proprietary OEM data from a range of manufacturers, including BMW, Renault, Ford, Peugeot, Citroen, Opel / Vauxhall, DS, and Mercedes-Benz.
