There are dozens of sound business reasons that you should implement GPS tracking into your fleet – from increasing productivity to providing better customer service. But one thing that should never be overlooked is the safety of your drivers.
Geotab fleet tracking is one of the best steps you can take to improve on this. Here is a look at some of the top features provided by Geotab that can help make your fleet safer.
Dangerous driving monitoring:
Geotab comes pre-loaded with best-in-industry features designed for both the operator of the vehicle, and the manager of the fleet. This starts with active monitoring of the vehicle which can detect instances of:
- Harsh acceleration
- Harsh braking
- Harsh cornering
Driver safety scorecard:
Having access to data is one thing – quickly and easily analyzing it is another. That’s where Geotab really beats out the competition on the market today. Features like our driver safety scorecard make it easy for you, as a busy fleet manager, to quickly take stock of your drivers’ behavior. Check out more info on the basic driver score report here as well as a more advanced scorecard, available free through the Geotab marketplace, here.
Integrated Hours of service (for regulations but also for driver fatigue):
Fatigued drivers are a huge cause of accidents and problems on the road; regularly scheduled breaks are essential — and the law. Integrating your unit with the Geotab Drive software is the easiest, most effective hours of service solution on the market today.
Should the worst happen, and one of your drivers is involved in a collision, the fleet manager can receive an instant notification. In addition, the unit can collect data surrounding the collision, which can help you defend the company in the event of a dispute over the accident.
Using the data to set ongoing standards for drivers:
Collecting data on your drivers behavior can be the first step towards actually improving your drivers’ behavior. Check out this recent post on using GPS tracking to improve driver standards.

Beyond all the great functionality and resources that Geotab provides out of the box, there are a whole bunch of apps and add-ons that are downloadable through the Geotab Marketplace to take your fleet safety to the next level.
