Trimble has been ranked as the number one telematics service provider for commercial vehicles by ABI Research for a third consecutive year.
The annual survey analysed 20 global vendors serving the commercial telematics industry. They were assessed based on a variety of 'implementation' and 'innovation' criteria withTrimble ranked as the top provider for both, which included market share of subscribers, vertical segmentation, quality and reliability, range of product features and organisation health.
ABI Research said that Trimble's success can be attributed to its geographical footprint, wide range of innovative solutions and technology versatility, organic growth, acquisitions and increasing subscriber base. Through its strategic acquisitions, no other company offers the same depth and breadth of products and services to as many verticals in as many countries as Trimble.
"We are extremely pleased to be recognised as the leading telematics service provider by ABI Research for a third consecutive year," said Brian McLaughlin, president of PeopleNet, a Trimble Company and part of the transportation and logistics division.
"The ultimate metric of our success is to provide added value to our customers by developing best-in-class solutions that deliver significant operational efficiencies.
"While we operate globally, our fleet mobility technology is tailored to meet the individual needs of the customers and regions that we serve, ensuring that customer service, driver and vehicle safety and regulatory compliance are met at the highest possible level."
