Geotab launches public works solution for government fleets

July 2, 2020
According to Geotab, by providing public works departments with improved fleet management capabilities, fleets can accurately measure material usage, allowing government fleet managers to feel confident that community roads are not over or under-serviced.

Geotab has launched its Geotab Public Works solution in North America. The solution offers fleet managers visibility into the operational data of all government vehicle types on one platform and provides the tool sets to effectively remain compliant, reduce costs and maintain road safety, according to Geotab.

Designed to help government agencies better manage vehicles such as salt spreaders, snowplows, street sweepers and waste management vehicles, the Geotab Public Works solution is integrated with an extensive number of spreader controllers. The solution is built to support key government business drivers including material management, compliance, accountability and liability.

“Empowered by an industry-leading number of spreader controller integrations alongside various geospatial capabilities, the Geotab Public Works solution is designed to help government fleets optimize both their seasonal and ongoing fleet operations,” said Chris Jackson, associate vice president of business development of public works and smart cities.

According to Geotab, by providing public works departments with improved fleet management capabilities, fleets can accurately measure material usage, allowing government fleet managers to feel confident that community roads are not over or under-serviced. With Geotab Public Works, government fleets are better able to control costs while reducing the impact that excessive material usage can have on the environment, the company added.

“Spreader controllers provide fleet managers with rich insights that can help government agencies ensure that their fleets are adequately servicing roads without sacrificing the health of the environment,” said Jackson.

Available as a configurable "add-in" on the MyGeotab platform, the Geotab Public Works solution allows governments, including municipalities of all sizes, to customize their database to help meet the specific needs of their fleet. In addition, users can add further value and customization through access to the Geotab Marketplace, an extensive portfolio of mobile apps, software "add-ins" and hardware "add-ons" that enable Geotab customers to further customize their fleet management solution.

“With high-frequency, near real-time reporting, the Geotab Public Works solution allows governments to know where their fleets are and how they are operating at all times, enabling fleet managers to more efficiently leverage their fleet data to provide better and more transparent services to their residents," said Jean Pilon-Bignell, vice president of business development of government and smart cities at Geotab.
