Geotab has announced the availability of Geotab Roadside, which offers roadside- assistance management to customers in the U.S. and Canada.

Geotab Roadside combines the company’s GPS data service with a large network of service vehilces, allowing fleets ton access fast and accurate service from anywhere. Leveraging Rapitow, Geotab Roadside requires only a few steps to request assistance through MyGeotab or the Geotab Drive app, providing fleet managers and drivers with full insight into estimated arrival time and location of the service vehicle that is on its way.

Services including battery boost, fuel delivery, towing up to 25 miles, and more are complimentary for light-duty vehicles on Geotab’s ProPlus Plan. For ProPlus customers requiring additional services, or for those with medium- or heavy-duty vehicles, payment is collected directly within MyGeotab or the Geotab Drive app.

“Geotab Roadside will add a new level of convenience for our customers, reducing time spent on the phone and waiting on the side of the road to get you back to what you do best -- running your business,” said Neil Cawse, CEO of Geotab. “Leveraging telematics to make the service even better adds a new wrinkle to roadside assistance.”

Geotab Roadside is avialable on the Geotab Marketplace
