Geotab has announced the availability of GeoTach by Evestel on the Geotab Marketplace.
Developed by technology company, Evestel, the solution provides a Remote Data Downloading (RDD) system for European digital tachographs which integrates with Geotab’s telematics solution.
This integration will help fleets remotely manage driver and vehicle tachograph data, allowing them to ensure compliance with EU regulations as well as host intelligence from their digital tachographs in one central platform, it said.
Many fleets currently face issues with disparate systems and data silos which make vital data difficult to access and action.
By providing up-to-date, insightful data on driver working hours straight into a smart, central system, GeoTach says it will aid fleet managers in ensuring that their commercial vehicles are being used safely and securely, keeping both their drivers and other road users safe.
Alongside this, GeoTach will help fleets ensure compliance with regulatory changes in advance of the introduction of Smart Tachographs, mandatory from June 15.
Compatible with all digital tachograph brands, GeoTach supports the new regulation and its RDD eliminates the need for time-consuming manual downloads, helping improve overall productivity, it says.
“GeoTach is the complete solution for fleets looking to automate the way they manage their vehicle and driver data,” exlained Francisco Bastida, CEO at Evestel.
“We are excited for the opportunity to provide Geotab customers across Europe with a solution that will not only help save them time, but will improve the overall operation of their fleet.”
Stefano Peduzzi, director for Europe at Geotab. added: “Data has long been critical in fleet management and the use of tachograph devices helps to maintain integrity and safety on our roads.
“Our partnership with Evestel is an exciting one and we’re looking forward to bringing GeoTach and its capabilities to our customers in order to help them meet European tachograph compliance.
“GeoTach is a state of the art solution, helping turn fleet data management from a cost centre into a truly smart profit centre.”
Geotab will be demonstrating the new GeoTach solution at the upcoming CV Show at the NEC Birmingham from April 30 to May 2.
