Geotab, Ford Announce Integrated Telematics Solution

Geotab, a global provider of IoT and connected transportation, has announced the availability of the Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles, the company said.

Integrating Ford vehicle data into the MyGeotab platform, fleet managers gain access to one dedicated portal with powerful tools that can process data from vehicles with an embedded modem as well as those which require a third-party device.

Through this integration, Ford Data ServicesTM will securely transfer data from Ford vehicles with a factory installed modem (or Ford Plug-In Modem, where required) to Geotab´s cloud environment, eliminating the need for third-party hardware in Ford vehicles.

Simplifying the task of mixed-fleet management, the latest solution from Ford and Geotab provides fleet managers with the ability to oversee their entire fleet in one portal while also presenting the added benefit of access to the Geotab Marketplace, a portfolio of mobile apps, hardware Add-Ons and software Add-Ins that enable Geotab customers to further customize their fleet management solution.

With this solution, fleet managers will be able to access rich, proprietary, Ford-specific data available for all Ford 2020 or newer models in the United States.
