Geotab unlocks telematics potential for SAP clients

Geotab has launched a new integration app aimed at SAP software users, who now get access to fleet analytics and vehicle maintenance data insights. The app is available on the SAP App Center.

With this new partnership, Geotab’s MyGeotab API Adapter can push near real-time data into the SAP Cloud Platform, allowing for easy integration into other SAP systems. 

Create and merge
This allows customers who use both SAP and Geotab solutions to create and merge telematics data into analytics reports, enhance their predictive maintenance and access Vehicle Inspection Reporting and other critical operational information.

The range of possibilities includes end-to-end digital supply chain visibility, reporting on ROI, improved asset management, plus insights into vehicle health and driver safety. 

Because these are visible on the SAP Cloud Platform, this allows users outside fleet management teams (for example C-suite, finance and others) to better visualise how vehicle data may impact other areas of business.

Next level
“Working with SAP will help take enterprise-level telematics to the next level, by giving customers worldwide the opportunity to easily access and integrate their telematics data into their SAP-powered systems,” says Neil Cawse, CEO at Geotab. 

“As a leading telematics provider, Geotab has a proven track record of helping global companies better manage their fleets and operations with valuable vehicle insights and driver behaviour data,” says Peter Mason, Global Vice President at SAP. 

Deloitte offer
This partnership is hot on the heels of the announcement that Deloitte will offer Geotab’s product portfolio as part of its consulting, integration and analytics offering to the Canadian and Latin American markets. 

“By working both individually and collectively with SAP and Deloitte, we are not only expanding the business footprint for valuable telematics data,” added Sean Killen, Vice President, Global Business Development at Geotab. “But more importantly, we are helping companies better optimize their overall operations by enabling them to integrate Geotab’s vehicle and data insights into their existing enterprise platforms.”
