Sprint delivers Geotab fleet management solutions to government customers
Sprint, in partnership with Geotab, is offering plug-and-play fleet management solutions to local and state government agencies and authorized non-profit organizations.
The solutions will be available to entities entitled to purchase products under the Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA/NASPO) cooperative purchasing contract.
WSCA/NASPO contract is formed by a consortium of states designed to help states and local government entities avail quality services in a cost effective and efficient manner.
Geotab solution features GO6, which supports any type of vehicle with the use of a special J-BUS adaptor and expands capabilities with Garmin navigation, Iridium satellite, sensors and other add-ons using a special expander cable called the IOX.
The device plugs into the vehicle’s OBDII (OBD2) port – where it then reads and sends vehicle health, location, and driving style information back to the Geotab Web-based application.
The fleet management solution combines the plug-and-play feature with analytics, as well as Web-based user tools and reports to help customers effectively manage their fleet by tracking and monitoring vehicle locations and identifying driving behaviours.
Fleet managers can also optimize driver dispatch and routing and improve the overall health of their fleets with maintenance reminders and alerts. It offers the ability to track each driver even if they are driving different vehicles.
Geotab telematics technology has garnered greater adoption in public sector. The fleet management solution helps lower fuel costs, prevent vehicle wear and tear, prioritize vehicle maintenance, and qualify for insurance discounts.
Sprint delivers Geotab Connected Fleet solution as part of their portfolio providing a powerful and easy-to-use tool for driving impactful savings and efficiencies. Geotab solutions align well with Sprint’s commitment to safe and secure driving, said Ben Vos, vice president and general manager, Emerging Solutions Group, Sprint.
Sprint’s secure network supports the delivery of an expansive range of telematics applications. To ensure the growing demand for telematics and other advanced solutions is met, Sprint has embarked on Network Vision, a multiyear network initiative designed to enhance customers ‘experience with faster data speeds, improved voice quality and easier connectivity.
