Geotab Selected as Sole Telematics Provider by the State of California

World’s connected transportation leader to roll out telematics
technology throughout the State of California

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/california?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#californialt;/agt;–Geotab,
a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, today announced it
has been awarded a single-source Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to
supply the State of California and participating local government agency
fleets with a fully integrated, best-in-class telematics solution. As
part of the State’s goal to promote a reliable, environmentally
responsible and cost-effective fleet, Geotab’s award-winning technology
will be available to all state, municipal and county fleets.

“This award comes after a rigorous three-year process with contributions
from many state and local agencies and departments,” stated Neil Cawse,
CEO, Geotab. “Being selected as the sole-source telematics provider for
the State of California helps to formalize Geotab’s position as the
trusted leader preferred by state, local and federal government agencies
throughout the U.S.”

The State of California has recently introduced several green
initiatives
targeted at improving fleet operations, and in
particular reducing harmful environmental impact. To measure success,
ensure effectiveness and improve overall fleet efficiency, the State’s
Sustainability Roadmap identified that a centralized telematics program
is needed to help reduce fossil fuel usage, improve vehicle utilization
and reduce operating costs.

Having recently announced the launch of its GO9
telematics device
, Geotab’s solution is unique to the industry,
equipping fleets with the ability to do more with their data today and
into the future. Through this new contract, Geotab has the opportunity
to equip California state and municipal agency vehicles with its
award-winning fleet management solution. Adding to the company’s recent
contract-winning portfolio, Geotab announced earlier this year that the
General Services Administration (GSA) awarded the company the largest
telematics contract
in history, right on the heels of the industry
leader becoming the first telematics company to receive FIPS
140-2 validation
for its cryptographic library.

“Geotab is uniquely positioned to offer California state and local
agencies an open telematics platform that can be used to help improve
efficiency, intelligently electrify their fleets, reduce GHG emissions,
optimize winter operations, streamline regulatory reporting and
compliance and much more,” added Jean Pilon-Bignell, Associate Vice
President, Government and Smart City at Geotab. “We are confident that
this partnership will not only help optimize fleet operations, but will
also give regional governments unprecedented access to a leading edge
computing and analytics platform that can put connected-vehicle data to
use within a myriad of smart city and smart state initiatives.”
