The recent influx of multiple on-board technologies has created a complicated footprint, the need for on-going maintenance of multiple systems, and data discrepancies across platforms. All of this results in extra costs and extra time to you and your fleet. Not to mention that inconsistent data across platforms and hardware can cause confusion and missed opportunities to optimize your fleet’s performance. For example, did you know that seemingly simple data points such as a timestamp can be off by seconds, minutes, or even hours across technologies? Imagine how this plays out in litigation and decision making across your organization.
On December 18th, join SmartDrive and Geotab product experts as they share stories from fleets that benefit from convergence. They will show how a single source of truth helps ensure consistency, simplicity and savings.
As Fleet Owner reported earlier this year, “Convergence of Technologies will Transform Transportation.” Convergence is here; it’s time to learn how it will transform your fleet.
