Geotab Routing and Advanced Routing
available from GPS Tracking America
Geotab features a built in routing feature that come standard with the system. It allows you to dispatch your vehicle using the Geotab drive app. Geotab also features the unique marketplace, where you can find advanced routing partner such as Route4me.
Built-in routing with Geotab:
In the Geotab fleet management software, users can easily create a route consisting of multiple zones on a map, which the driver can then see from the GPS device in their vehicle (Garmin) with Pro plan and with propitiatory cable. You can also receive it on the phone via the Geotab Drive app included in the Base Plan pricing.
Routing will include arrival time estimates for road speeds and traffic, when using the Geotab Drive smartphone app, because Geotab Drive is using Google Maps to calculate routes.
Geotab also provides a simple way to compare the planned versus actual routes, as well as important information such as:
- Expected arrival time
- Actual arrival time
- Stopped zone
- Idling duration
- Route optimization
In addition, managers can access the Route Summary Report to find out the number of routes that have been followed over any given time period. This will allow them to acquire a complete summary of the entire fleet. Through the Route Summary Report, users also have access to important routing information such as:
- The route name
- First departure
- Last arrival time
- Office duration
- Home duration
- Driving distance
Advanced integrated routing with Geotab marketplace partner Route4me:
We have partnered with a Geotab marketplace provider called Route4Me to provide advanced routing for an extra charge.
