Geotab Overview

  1. 1. FLEET AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT W W W . G E O T A B . C O . Z AMember of The Gerber Goldschmidt Group
  2. 2. “YOU CAN’T MANAGE WHAT YOU DON’T MEASURE” sums up our attitude to Fleet Management. We do not believe in quick fixes and only integrate auxiliary devices that will add value for our customers and not affect the quality of our installations in their vehicles.GEOTABGeotab™ was formed in 1998 and has been primarily involved in the FleetManagement industry since then. A member of the Gerber Goldschmidt Group ofcompanies we are financially stable and enjoy a reputation of being the supplier ofchoice with a number of global corporates.Geotab™ has local representation in some 32 countries including; North America,Australia and various countries in Africa, the Middle East and Europe. As ourproducts have been met favourably around the world we continue to expand ourinternational footprint. With over 350, 000 vehicles monitored by Geotab™ we arerecognised as being an established force in our industry.Corporate offices are located in Johannesburg, Toronto, Cape Town and Durban.Authorised distributors, dealers and fitment centres continue to be established tofacilitate our rapid growth.With the advent of GO4™, GO5™, GO Recover™ and Mobile Witness™, Geotab™has been able to expand our area of focus to include the measurement of Driver Member of The Gerber Goldschmidt GroupBehaviour alongside our legendary Fleet Management.YOU CAN’T MANAGE WHAT YOU DON’T MEASUREWith an enviable reputation for both the accuracy of data, and virtually unbreakablehardware, Geotab™ has become one of the leading providers of electronic fleetmanagement worldwide. Our success can be attributed to an obsession-likecommitment to quality.In the run-up to the launch of GO4™ in Africa we completed in excess of 2 millionkilometres of on-road travel tests, without any issues or concerns being recorded.We only launched GO4™ after the testing process was completed.In our opinion it all comes down to accuracy. With trip data accurate in excess of99.9% of the actual distance travelled [measured independently] we believe wecan honestly say that all our hardware platforms stand in a class of their own. 2 000 000 KM
  3. 3. W W W . G E O T A B . C O . Z A x-act ™ X-ACT™ ACCURATE LOGGING We track vehicles using the 50 channel u-Blox 5 GPS engine with SuperSense® Indoor GPS. Add this to our patented X-Act™ Intelligent Logging Processor and you have access to Geotab’s legendary Trips & Activity detail. Using superior positional accuracy, distance reporting and trip profiling we stand head and shoulders above traditional systems. Complex, built-in algorithms monitor GPS speed, orientation and time on a second- by-second basis and ensure that positioning relates to actual driving conditions. No interface with the vehicle odometer or other components is required. Customers are assured of accurate, comprehensive and clutter-free trip profiling and driver behaviour information that reflects only relevant data.S TAT I C A N D M O B I L E A S S E T M A N A G E M E N T
  4. 4. CHECKMATE™ “THE SOFTWARE SUITE OF CHOICE”W W W . G E O T A B . C O . Z A From the simple, yet vitally important trips and activity of your vehicles, through the more complex measurement of driver behaviour, predictive engine management and essential accident data management, Checkmate™ handles the data in a seamless, easy-to-manage method.Our logic is simple and even the most challenged computer operator quickly learnstheir way around Checkmate™. The Checkmate™ User interfaceRISK MANAGEMENT REPORTS AND DRIVER RATINGSDriver risk management reports and tools are available within Checkmate™, ourproprietary software suite. The reports illustrate a complete view of a driver’sprofile, and drivers are assigned a score based on their driving habits. This catersfor a fully automated process that identifies risky drivers; the reports include topspeeds, harsh acceleration, harsh braking, sharp turns and more.

  5. 5. DANGEROUS LANE CHANGES AND BRAKINGState-of-the-art built in accelerometers in our devices ensures exact g-forcemonitoring that allows for the monitoring of Driver Behaviour, with a twist – a builtin buzzer alerts the driver to infractions, allowing for the drivers to actively adjusttheir driving habits as they drive!Identifying aggressive on-road behaviour which is often evident in dangerous,sharp lane changes and harsh braking, will help you profile hazardous drivinghabits, allowing for training and coaching that will minimize the risk of collisions andaccidents before they occur. Putting a stop to poor driving behaviour will help youachieve safety with your drivers, and other vehicles on the road.ACCIDENT RECORDING AND INSTANT NOTIFICATIONSIf an accident occurs, be one of the first to know and take timely action steps.With Geotab’s unique algorithm, you will receive a detailed view of the last 100minutes, broken down into second-by-second detail of the event. This will help youunderstand what lead up to the accident, and allow for accident reconstruction.Additionally, if a vehicle is hit while parked, it would prove no-fault on the driver.If a collision should occur the Geotab™ device installed in the vehicle will automaticallydownload accident data, in second-by-second resolution, allowing for a full andcomprehensive investigation to be carried out by the relevant personnel in yourcompany. Comprehensive mapping options - OpenStreet, Bing, Bing Hybrid and Google Street ViewBUREAU SERVICEGeotab™ offers a fully supported bureau service to assist clients in managing theirfleet management solution.

  7. 7. IN OUR OPINION W W W . G E O T A B . C O . Z A “IT COMES DOWN TO ACCURACY” With trip data accurate in excess of 99.9% of the actual distance travelled [measured independently] we believe we can honestly say that all our hardware platforms stand in a class of their own. MOBILE WITNESS™ The introduction of Mobile Witness™ has brought in-cab cameras within the reach of fleet managers, at an affordable price. Two devices are available, catering for ™ single [road ahead] and dual view [in-cab and the road ahead] images to be recorded. As soon as a pre-set parameter is broken Mobile Witness™ creates an Exception in Checkmate™ allowing the end user to quickly view the data around which the event occurred, rather than spend hours viewing video files, looking for incidents. Both devices have an emergency button that allows the Driver to ‘record’ an event for subsequent viewing, such as their arrival or departure from premises. All events are both time and position stamped within Checkmate™ allowing for exact positioning of an event. IRIDIUM GPS DATA MODEM [CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFER] The introduction of the Iridium GPS Data modem with GO4™ has enabled Geotab™ to offer a cost-effective alternative to costly data roaming, when vehicles leave their country of origin. The Iridium unit is connected to a standard GO4™ platform ™ and automatically assumes the data transfer [using the GPS satellites as the data carrier] when the GSM modem disconnects from the network in the country of origin. Added functionality allows for the vehicle to be positioned in a number of ways. Polling as and when required by the end-user, automatic time-based positioning [for example 4 positions per hour] or a combination of the above. A further enhancement is the ability to enable a distress call via the Iridium unit allowing for communication alerts should the driver encounter difficulty when cross-border. GO4™ automatically records the trip movement of the vehicle to its on-board memory whilst roaming. Upon re-entry into the country of origin the GSM modem automatically reconnects to the local network and ‘dumps’ the entire cross-border trip onto the customers database.S TAT I C A N D M O B I L E A S S E T M A N A G E M E N T
