ELD Solution Spotlight: Geotab Drive

March 20, 2017 - Products


Geotab Drive is a smart mobile app that combines the benefits of multiple devices in one solution.

Geotab Drive provides one user-friendly platform for managing hours-of-service (HOS), driver vehicle inspection reporting (DVIR), Driver ID, as well as messaging and routing. The app syncs data between the Geotab GO device and a smartphone or tablet to provide automatic duty status changes, violation alerts, a complete end-to-end inspection workflow, and more.

Users can add and remove add-ons from the Geotab Marketplace to fit their needs, such as integrating Geotab Drive with their transportation management system (TMS) for accounting, dispatch, and operations. The Geotab software development kit (SDK) and APIs provide secure, open access to the data, so fleets can create applications or pull data into their own systems.

Geotab Drive is available as a free download on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and is compatible with off-the-shelf Android- and iOS-based devices. Drivers can use their own phone or tablet with a data plan and location services activated.

The dashboard is also easy to use and navigate. Compliance can be monitored via the MyGeotab web-based fleet management software portal, with reporting on driver logs, violations, and remaining hours.

Additional benefits of Geotab Drive include full FMCSA compliance, alerts for violations and drivers not logged in, over-the-air (OTA) software and firmware updates, and easy plug-and-play installation.
