Geotab, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) and connected transportation firm, is partnering with Free2Move, the global fleet mobility and connected data company of Auburn Hills’ Stellantis to deliver integrated telematics solutions.
The collaborative solution, announced at Work Truck Week 2022, will use embedded telematics in Stellantis vehicles to enable the seamless integration of vehicle data from Free2Move servers into the MyGeotab platform.
With access to one unified and easy-to-use telematics dashboard, fleet managers can generate reports and measure key metrics to help optimize fleet performance and improve mobility.
“Geotab and Free2Move share a common goal to improve mobility and enhance fleet efficiency,” says Rob Minton, associate vice president of connected car development at the Ontario, Canada-based Geotab. “As one of the top operating systems for connected fleets, the solution from Geotab, in collaboration with Free2Move, will supply fleets with a telematics solution that is simple to activate, cost effective and will help fleet managers better manage their fleets.”
The embedded telematics device provides fleet owners with Stellantis vehicles — including Ram, Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler — with access to rich data insights and no additional hardware or installation.
Fleets also can reduce costs and maximize uptime, boosting profitability and increasing efficiency. The solution also presents the benefit of access to the Geotab Marketplace, a portfolio of mobile apps, hardware add-ons and software add-ins that enable Geotab customers to tailor their fleet management solutions further.
“Free2Move is excited to partner with Geotab to provide enhanced fleet management through an embedded telematics solution,” says Benjamin Maillard, general manager Free2Move North America. “We are focused on innovation and improving mobility. With the new solution for Stellantis vehicles, we are delivering unique value by merging traditional fleet management with enhanced mobility solutions.”
Launching later this year, the solution will be compatible with eligible connected Stellantis vehicles, including select 2018 and newer models and all 2022 and newer models, through a basic or premium connectivity plan. The solution will be available starting in the U.S. with plans for global availability in the coming years.
