Inside the truck data integration: Volvo Trucks, Geotab

Every truck data integration is different. That’s true whether you’re integrating your own data with new telematics service providers (TSPs) or OEMs are integrating with TSPs, which has been a growing trend over the past couple of months. TSPs are receiving data direct from OEM-installed hardware, but how does it work and what does it mean for you as the fleet end user?

I connected with Conal Deedy, director of connected vehicle services for Volvo Trucks North America, and Scott Sutarik, Geotab’s vice president of commercial vehicle solutions, to find out. They walk us through both sides of the data connection, highlight the driving force behind deeper truck data integrations and hint at other integrations and features that could be on the horizon. Watch the video above for all of the info.
