Geotab ties up with Mercedes-Benz on installation-free telematics
Geotab has signed a deal that will enable Mercedes-Benz car and van customers to get in-depth telematics insights without the need for additional hardware or after-market installations.
The tie-up with Mercedes-Benz Connective Services, part of Mercedes-Benz AG group, will enable data from Mercedes-Benz vehicles to be incorporated into the MyGeotab platform.
This will provide operators with a wealth of tools such as activity reports, trip history, GPS tracking, fuel consumption and engine system information, helping them to streamline their operations, reduce fleet costs, strengthen compliance and potentially generate more revenue.
The new OEM telematics programme, which follows a similar partnership with Ford, is available to order for Mercedes-Benz cars and vans across 20 countries in Europe, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, and will be rolled out to other countries and regions including the Americas.
Edward Kulperger, senior vice president, Geotab Europe, said: “We know that by integrating our core competencies with Mercedes-Benz connected vehicles, businesses large and small will greatly benefit by being able make better-informed, data-driven decisions to better run their fleet operations all within one common platform.”
