ABI Research recognizes Verizon, Trimble, TomTom Telematics for telematics excellence

ABI Research names Verizon, Trimble, TomTom Telematics as leading truck telematics vendors

The latest competitive analysis from ABI Research ranks Verizon as the leader among 12 commercial telematics suppliers considered, with Trimble and TomTom Telematics coming in second and third place, respectively. The top five companies, overall, listed by rank include Verizon, Trimble, TomTom Telematics, Omnitracs and Geotab.

Verizon recently expanded its capabilities by acquiring Fleetmatics and Telogis.

“Verizon, with the acquisitions of Fleetmatics and Telogis, will be the largest global commercial telematics vendor by an order of two times,” says Susan Beardslee, senior analyst at ABI Research. “Telogis brings a wealth of enterprise capabilities, OEM relationships, and long-haul fleets; while Fleetmatics brings a significant subscriber base in local field service, with a strong presence in Western Europe.”

“The industry will see continued transformation through strategic acquisitions, partnerships, and consolidation as suppliers shift toward more open platforms, connected solutions, and prognostics,” concludes Beardslee. “Examples of this include Geotab’s open API platform and certified channel partners, Omnitracs’ recent Intelligent Vehicle Gateway (IVG), and Trimble’s PeopleNet for built-in remote diagnostics.”
