We sell GPS Tracking Devices to a very wide range of businesses, from cleaning companies to HVAC Installers, to food distributors. One of the things are clients unanimously love about Geotab, and one of its best features on the whole, is its total flexibility to suit the needs of your business.
The MyGeotab platform provides a powerful, intuitive dashboard for you to monitor your fleet of workers, and your vehicles’ usage and maintenance needs. Still, some of our customers require even more data, or more concise ways to organize and digest their data. It’s all about finding the best way to tailor the system, and the data received, to the particular needs of our customers’ business.
Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to attend the 2014 Geotab Dealer Conference in Florida. While there, we were able to meet lots of companies with amazing products and ideas that integrate seamlessly with Geotab. Here are three that really stood out to us.
Maps BI is an app that takes works directly with your existing Geotab data and makes it even more interactive and intuitive. Think of it as a plug-in which provides an advanced visual analytics dashboard. The whole idea of Maps BI (the BI stands for ‘business intelligence’) is to take a large amount of data, and make it as simple as possible to look at it, analyze it, and make a judgment.
The other great thing about Maps BI is that it allows you to import data from various sources. So if you use a CRM system like SalesForce, for example, you can integrate that with your Geotab data in one easy-to-read dashboard. We went into more depth about this app in a previous post, so check out some more information on Maps BI here.

But beyond these, there are many more third-party applications and add-ons for Geotab as well.
