Global  fleet management and telematics provider, Geotab has announced it has launched  its  Geotab Marketplace Order Now program in Australia which it says  features Sensata Insights video telematics solution as its first participating partner.

Geotab says its Order Now program is a new and simple way for its customers to order solutions from the Geotab Marketplace.

The company said that as part of its ongoing expansion and development efforts, third-party hardware and software solutions will be available through the Marketplace’s Order Now program, saying that it will make the process easier  for customers.

The company says that  the Order Now has been designed to enhance the user experience, and will provides its customers with a ‘seamless ordering, delivery, and after-sales support for solutions’,  and allow customers to expand their fleet management solutions with the click of a button.

Geotab says that safety and video solutions are becoming increasingly important to fleets as part of their safety programs which is why it has chose to kick off the launch of Order Now in Australia with video telematics solutions from Sensata Insights.

Geotab says that Sensata Insights’ video telematics solutions seamlessly integrate with the Geotab platform, enabling customers to easily set up safety rules and view video footage within one unified platform.

“Drivers are a fleet’s greatest asset and their safety is a top priority, so using video telematics adds a layer of insight into what is happening on the road, allowing fleet operators to feel confident that they are helping keep their drivers safe,” said Aaron Kim, director of product strategy at Sensata Insights.

“Adding our solutions to the Order Now program, starting with our KP2 camera, enables Geotab customers to choose a video telematics solution that best serves their fleet and provides them with intelligent insights that can help improve driver safety as well as video footage to help protect themselves against ligation,” Kim said.

According to Geotab, the Sensata KP2 is a modular HD road-facing dash cam that offers road and optional driver-facing visibility. It also includes an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) with notifications that focus on supporting drivers, including forward collision warnings, lane departure warnings and tailgating warnings. When equipped with a powerful video telematics solution, fleets can get a better picture of what is happening on the road, allowing them to better support and protect their drivers, and  improve overall fleet safety and performance.

“Order Now allows Geotab customers to access a marketplace of solutions with deeply integrated capabilities to the Geotab telematics platform, providing the best user experience,” said Sean Killen, vice president Latin America, Asia and ANZ at Geotab.

“We chose Sensata Insights to launch the program in Australia based on our customers’ demand to have streamlined access to a high-quality video technology to help improve fleet safety, reduce insurance-related costs and support drivers while on the road.”
