Geotab reported April 27 it has surpassed 2,000 government customers. From small municipal fleets to state and federal fleets, these government agencies are made up of a combined 250,000 vehicles using a range of Geotab telematics solutions to improve overall operating efficiency, reduce traffic related injuries and fatalities, streamline public services, and reduce harmful environmental impacts.
As the ongoing pandemic continues to rewire transportation networks and communities, government agencies are facing new challenges to traditional operations. Government fleets are being used in new ways to respond to public safety challenges and adapt to widespread changes in population densities. Geotab is helping to address these challenges with solutions like Active Tracking, which gives situational awareness to first responder fleets, while Geotab’s Public Works solution allows public service fleet managers to monitor winter street clearing efforts, street cleaning operations, and waste collection performance and level of service. Geotab’s Keyless solution provides remote vehicle access and management tools to help increase utilization and reduce costs.
Geotab’s track record with government agencies ranges from providing fleet management solutions to the U.S. General Services Administration’s GSA Fleet’s Program, to working with the City of Seattle to help meet its goals of cutting carbon emissions by 50% by 2025 and being fossil fuel free by 2030.
Geotab’s reputation as the solution provider for all levels of government across North America includes achieving Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization for its cloud-based telematics platform, which validates the company’s ability to meet stringent encryption requirements set forth by the U.S. federal government and enables Geotab to offer its fleet management products and services to the GSA and other federal, state, and local government agencies. Ensuring rigorous security measures that meet industry best cybersecurity practices, Geotab also achieved ISO 27001 certification in 2020, and also achieved FIPS 140-2 validation for its cryptographic library in February 2019.
