O2 Track and Go and O2 Smart Tracking uses Geotab’s GO7 telematics data capture device and the MyGeotab platform. The device can be quickly and easily installed into the on-board OBD-II diagnostics port in vans and cars, either overtly or covertly. It simply plugs in: there is no need for any wiring, so it can be easily removed when a vehicle is de-fleeted and instantly becomes ready to install in a new vehicle. The devices have been deployed in more than 450,000 vehicles, says Geotab.

The technology will serve verticals such as car rental, leasing, courier, beverages and utility fleets to improve their on-road productivity, on-road safety, and ecological efficiency, in addition to optimizing fleet performance to reduce fuel costs, says O2. Fleet managers will gain more intelligence across multiple vehicles giving them the data and insights needed to make more informed business decisions in real-time. Furthermore, drivers will have more insight over their individual vehicles.
“Telematics is now a must-have for all organisations looking for the most accurate data about their business vehicles. O2 Track and Go and O2 Smart Tracking can help fleet decision makers achieve significant operating efficiencies,” said David Taylor, managing director of Machine to Machine for O2 in the UK. “Through our partnership with Geotab we’re looking forward to expanding our existing relationships with fleets, leasing and rental companies to embrace fleet management.”
“Fleet, rental and leasing companies need reliable and secure fleet management solutions that are easy to install, manage and switch out as the fleet is changing rapidly,” said CEO Neil Cawse, Geotab. “We are excited and honoured to be selected to support O2’s telematics offering in the UK and look forward to help serve O2’s fleet customers with our end-to-end fleet management solution,” Cawse continued.
