ABI Research ranks Trimble top provider of fleet telematics

Trimble announced that the company received a top ranking in ABI Research’s 2013 Commercial Fleet Telematics Competitive Assessment.

Trimble announced that the company received a top ranking in ABI Research’s 2013 Commercial Fleet Telematics Competitive Assessment. Out of the 19 fleet telematics service providers assessed on “Innovation” and “Implementation,” Trimble was the only provider that ranked among the top three in both categories.

“The transportation industry recognizes telematics as the gold standard for delivering exceptional return on information. We are steadfast on our focus to deliver added value to customers, which is the ultimate metric of our success,” said Ron Konezny, general manager of Trimble’s Transportation and Logistics (T&L) Division. “While Trimble operates internationally, we focus on utilizing local resources to provide innovative, best-in-class solutions and services to meet our customers’ needs. Our global market leadership in delivering telematics through advanced, integrated fleet mobility systems can improve regulatory compliance management, driver safety and customer service and reduce fuel and operational costs, which can ultimately positively impact an organization’s bottom line.”

The assessment results acknowledge that Trimble’s strategy of acquiring key telematics companies in the trucking sector is paying off. Gareth Owen, principal analyst at ABI Research, said, “Its recent acquisition of PeopleNet and Punch Telematix has boosted its presence in the trucking sector, particularly the enterprise sector, while its acquisition of ALK Technologies enables Trimble to offer more sophisticated navigation services compared to its competitors.”
