Easy Plug-&-Play Installation
The Geotab GO device is a small form-factor vehicle tracking device that simply plugs directly into your vehicle’s OBDII port. If your vehicle or truck does not have an OBDII, an adapter can be used instead. The installation process is quick, easy, and does not require any special tools or the assistance of a professional installer.
Fleet365 for Dynamics 365
Fleet365 is a web-based integration service that brings Geotab fleet telematics right into Microsoft Azure Cloud and Dynamics 365.
Microsoft Azure is an open, flexible, enterprise-grade cloud computing platform. It’s a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through a global network of datacenters.
Fleet365 - What it does
Fleet365 brings Geotab fleet telematics into Microsoft Azure by creating a bridge between the customer’s MyGeotab platform and Azure Iot Hub. If you are a Dynamics 365 CFS (Connected Field Services) customer and want to use or are already using Geotab as your fleet management system, Fleet365 brings live Geotab data into Dynamics 365.
Fleet365 transfers Geotab telematics events into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connected Field Services solution as field service alerts which can trigger workflows. For example a harsh braking event can trigger an alert to a Safety Manager, or a Dispatcher can get alerted as to when a technician arrives at a customer location.
Fleet365 also makes Geotab event telematics available to be consumed by the Azure IoT Hub to allow you to utilize your fleet's data for additional applications such as business analytics, machine learning or any other Microsoft offering available as part of their cloud services.
Fleet365 - Geotab data
Fleet365 consumes the following data and events from the MyGeotab platform making it available in Dynamics 365:
- Exception Events (i.e. nearing customer, customer arrivals, departures, long stops, hard braking, reversing when leaving, etc.)
- Fault Events (i.e. engine overheating, DTCs, or other engine faults)
- Location Events (i.e. location updates from your vehicle)
- Status Events (i.e. engine status, diagnostics, etc)
- Trip Data (i.e. vehicle history)
