Geotab and Ford expand integrated telematics solution into Europe

IoT and Telematics specialist Geotab has announced that it is expanding its Integrated Solution for vehicles of the Ford brand – already available in North America - into 15 markets across Europe.

The newest offering enables the integration of Ford data directly into the MyGeotab fleet management platform, giving fleet customers a single unified view of their entire Ford fleet, eliminating the need for and hassle of third-party hardware and increasing efficiency and productivity.

The solution covers all Ford vehicles from 2020 and beyond and is compliant with the EU’s GDPR principles around data privacy. The Geotab Integrated Solution for Ford Vehicles is available in Europe’s main fleet markets Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the UK, but also in the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Austria and Ireland.

“OEMs like Ford understand the value of telematics and the data behind fleets,” added Stefano Peduzzi, Vice President, Technology Solutions & Operations at Geotab. “Geotab will continue its efforts to collaborate with OEMs to better understand how we, as an industry, can improve fleet management services on both a customer and environmental level, while offering the most convenient and valuable solution for businesses on the market.”

“Ford Data Services is committed to the ‘Power of Choice’, ensuring our customers continue to get manufacturer-grade vehicle information from the telematics provider of their choice, regardless of where they may be,” said Dave Phatak, the Director of Ford Commercial Solutions Europe. “Through this integration with Geotab, our hope is that customers across Europe will be even better equipped to deliver best-of-breed fleet management, spurring further innovation and driving down costs.”

“We’re thrilled that Ford has chosen to broaden its work with Geotab across Europe, allowing its customers to access unique and valuable insights within our consolidated platform,” added Sherry Calkins, Vice President, Strategic Partners. “We look forward to continuing to work with OEMs, like Ford, as we look to expand these essential relationships around the globe.”
