Geotab and Phillips Connect announced that StealthNet and SolarNet asset tracking and management solutions are now available through the Geotab Marketplace Order Now program. Phillips Connect solutions are fully integrated with the MyGeotab platform, which the companies said gives users faster access to analytics that help increase operational efficiency and lower operating costs.
StealthNet and SolarNet are IP67 rated, which Phillips Connect said makes them ideal solutions for capturing actionable data from trailers, chassis, containers, equipment, and light-duty vehicles that operate in harsh conditions. The company also said the devices are also easy to install, require almost no ongoing maintenance, and are expandable to interface with other sensors through hard-wire and Bluetooth connectivity.
“We’ve made work easier for our customers by integrating our most popular asset management solutions to be accessible, and interface seamlessly within MyGeotab,” said Phillips Connect VP of Customer Experience Jessica Smith in a release. “Phillips Connect and Geotab share a passion and expertise to deliver information that enhances our customers’ businesses.”
Why Integrate with MyGeotab?
Geotab’s integration infrastructure enables MyGeotab users to easily gather and analyze data through a single platform, rather than having to access multiple platforms and managing data separately, according to the company.
Economic and societal pressures are leaving commercial transportation businesses more vulnerable to the negative impact of issues that challenge the sector, such as trailer and cargo theft and loss, and inefficient asset and time management. Phillips Connect’s technology available through the Geotab Marketplace Order Now program helps users procure solutions quickly and conveniently, allowing them to make informed decisions that can help mitigate risk, improve productivity, and create cost efficiency.
Top Benefits of an Integrated Solution
Why use an integrated solution from Geotab and Phillips Connect? It gives users the ability to track assets to manage theft or loss, automate yard checks, and help identify maintenance issues before costly repairs are needed.
Key benefits of the integrated solution include:
- Allows for total awareness of trailer health with deep data insights and analysis in real time.
- Enables comprehensive monitoring of chassis sensors to receive status updates and notifications to help identify issues before they arise.
- Helps users monitor location and status of containers and cargo with real-time alerts.
- Provides visibility into location and status of small vehicles and heavy equipment with high-performance tracking.
“We see the needs of our customers changing as today’s inflationary pressures, labor challenges and a strained supply chain challenge their business. It’s our duty to continue to find ways to cater to the evolving needs of those we serve,” said Scott Sutarik, Geotab vice president, enterprise solutions. "By providing our customers with seamless access to leading asset management solutions at the click of a button, we empower them to make smart and nimble business decisions that yield tremendous value.”
Geotab and Phillips Connect began their partnership in 2019. Geotab launched the Order Now program in 2021, allowing users access to Marketplace solutions directly within the MyGeotab platform using the “Add to Cart” button.
Phillips Connect promoted a new VP in September 2022. Cliff Creech will be responsible for customizing telematics solutions to meet customer needs, leading product/feature development, and more. Additionally, in mid-2021, the company partnered with Velociti for the installation and post-deployment technology monitoring and repair service for its trailer telematics solutions.
