New GPS Tracking Capabilities Through Geotab and DICKEY-john Integration

Using Geotab’s IOX-DJ unit (shown below), the DICKEY-john Control Point® Control System can be connected to receive information on distances, time, as well as the amount of granular (sand/salt) and liquid materials being spread during winter storm events.

This data is captured by the IOX and relayed to the MyGeotab fleet tracking software where exceptions/rules can be created and material quantities and spread areas determined.
