Certification by US network operator Verizon has helped push sales of Geotab’s plug-and-play telematics device to 150,000 in six months.
Sales of Geotab‘s G07 plug-and-play telematics device are soaring, with the Canadian company reporting 150,000 sold in the six months from February to June, mainly in North America. The GO7 is a plug-and-play device that connects to the vehicle OBD port, collecting data from the engine, drivetrain, instrument cluster and other relevant subsystems to maximise productivity and minimise downtime.
Appeal has been boosted by the device being certified for use on the Verizon wireless network, says Geotab. Network operator certification is a major milestone in the US, says the company, because it enables the solution to be sold into a larger pool of potential customers, such as those that require specific geographic coverage or that prefer a particular network operator.
“Fleet owners value reliability, which is a major reason why the GO7 is their go-to solution for maximising productivity and efficiency,” said Geotab CEO Neil Cawse. “The GO7’s 99.89 percent reliability, combined with Verizon’s robust, reliable nationwide cellular network, gives them the peace of mind they simply can’t get with most other telematics solutions.”
