How Geotab Asset Tracking Improves Your Fleet Management

If you’re looking for ways to improve efficiency within your vehicle fleet, a modern Geotab asset tracking solution is one of the best investments you can make.  Asset tracking in a fleet goes beyond simply tracking the vehicles.  You can monitor almost every individual component on each vehicle, opening new ways to significantly improve efficiency while reducing safety risks as well.

Asset tracking makes your life as a fleet manager easier while helping you look great.  Here are just a few ways that can happen.

Four Benefits to Geotab Asset Tracking In Modern Working Fleets

1 – Oversee your vehicles moment-by-moment 

You’ll have more data than ever on where and when your vehicles move around.  This information can be used to optimize your operations and vehicle utilization.  It also helps you ensure that your drivers and operators are making the best use of each vehicle.  Plus, should a driver ever go off-route, you’ll know instantly and be able to investigate the issue.

2 – Improve proactive preventative maintenance

Asset tracking systems can be granular down to the component level, which is a huge benefit for preventative maintenance.  You’ll know the expected lifespan of each major component, with optional alerts when a part is nearing its end-of-life.  This allows you to proactively replace these parts with minimal disruption, rather than waiting on them to fail while in use.

3 – Improve regulatory compliance

Maintaining a working fleet requires a lot of paperwork – and it becomes a lot easier with a robust asset tracking system.  You’ll have instant access to virtually every statistic and performance indicator you need to manage the bureaucratic elements.  You’ll also be able to prevent issues such as emissions problems which could potentially keep a vehicle off the road.  All this adds up to smoother, easier regulatory compliance.

4 – Reduce the risk of human error

Possibly the best aspect of Geotab asset tracking systems is that they offer far fewer opportunities for human error to cause issues.  They’re pulling data directly from the computer systems on the vehicle.  You don’t have to rely on people to report hours, mileage, and similar data.  Everything is captured directly and is much more likely to be error-free.

Is My ELD Data Secure?

Is My ELD Data Secure?

Telematics devices generate a large amount of data daily. ELD devices are tracking all vehicle and driver activities necessary for reporting as well as for the business to control fuel and maintenance costs. Protecting this data is important on many levels as it may contain customer accounts, schedules, shipment data, assets, and personal information.

It is clear to see that not only is this data is extremely valuable to the small business owner, the fleet manager, the CIO, and the CEO, it is valuable to everyone involved, including clients. How your telematics data is handled and protected from cybercrimes is critical.

GEOTAB – THE LEADER IN TELEMATICS

At VLC, we have partnered with the leader in telematics and the ELD industry, Geotab. Geotab takes a very rigorous approach to information security and they are continually improving upon their security measures. In addition, they provide recommendations to clients and partners to ensure all Geotab telematics systems are resilient to intrusion and uncompromising with respect to information security.

Here are key recommendations from Geotab for data security for your telematics system:

  • Secure data transfer
  • Digital signatures for updates
  • Hardware code protection
  • Use of cryptography
  • Third-party security audits
  • Limit server access
  • Keep software & firmware updated
  • Verify & test

COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY MEASURES

Your data must be secure across all aspects of your telematics ecosystem. Starting with the design and manufacture of the telematics device itself and the firmware security controlling the device, you need reassurances that your device is free of malware or compromise from a malicious party.

Secondly, the data transfer to the central server, security in the cloud, and your corporate culture must be rigorous in practicing and refining security processes.

SECURITY BEST PRACTICES

In summary, protect your data with a telematics product that is steeped in industry best practices and comprehensive security processes. Pair that with a strong corporate culture and employee training in security to maintain a constant vigilance of your important assets.

Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. Let’s all do our part to keep data safe!
