Geotab taps EU, Asia Pac telematics

North American fleet telematics firm Geotab is establishing a foothold on Europe and Asia Pacific through a deal with machine-to-machine specialist Telenor Connexion.
Geotab has completed certification testing of its GPS-based GO7 device on the Telenor subsidiary’s global network, opening the door to 100 countries in Europe and Asia. The device tracks vehicle location and driving behavior, provides route information, and offers maintenance alerts and reminders.
The firm joins firms including Volvo, Securitas and Hitachi on Telenor Connexion’s books.
George LeBron, the telco’s head of market development for the Americas, says Geotab is one of the “fastest growing telematics firms” in the world, and the firm is now positioned to “target new enterprise customers.”
