Geotab's Active Tracking and GO TALK have received a 2015 IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media, the telematics provider has announced.

The 2015 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.

"At Geotab, we focus on data and engineering so that we can continually provide our users with the most advanced solutions for fleet management," said Geotab CEO, Neil Cawse. "Active Tracking and GO TALK are examples of how we leverage new technology to provide fleets with tools for greater business insight and smart management."

Active Tracking is a feature available within MyGeotab (, Geotab's web-based fleet management software. With Active Tracking, fleet managers can see their vehicles driving live on an animated map in one continuous, fluid line.

While Active Tracking can be used by any fleet, it is ideal for those looking for real-time, accurate insights for emergency response purposes, such as ambulance fleets, and police services. Geotab's GO TALK is an in-vehicle coaching tool that provides instant, spoken word alerts and feedback to drivers. When paired together, GO TALK and Active Tracking leverage text-to-speech for more comprehensive behind the wheel driver coaching, such as warning drivers when they exceed the posted speed limit.
