Renault and Geotab launch integrated telematics collaboration in 21 countries

Renault and Geotab have announced a partnership aiming to boost fleet optimisation across Europe by connecting all Renault models built-in 2010 and later to Geotab’s telematics platform MyGeotab. 

The collaboration is a significant step to boost efficiency in corporate and commercial fleets of any size, as it will enable fleet managers to make data-driven decisions and optimise the management of fleets of any size. 

Renault models compatible with the telematics integration will get a factory-fitted or retrofitted telematics solution, resulting in a seamless connection between OEM servers and the MyGeotab platform, enabling fleet managers to process high-quality data without the need for additional hardware. 

Integration to the MyGeotab platform is now available in 21 European countries, including France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Poland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.

Available for all Renault car and van fleets 

Integration of the data from Renault vehicles and data analytics capabilities of the MyGeotab fleet management platform will provide critical insights into productivity, compliance, efficiency, optimisation and driver safety by:

  • Providing OEM-specific vehicle information,
  • Accessing third-party software through Geotab Marketplace for fleet-specific requirements,
  • Keeping the connectivity capabilities in future to benefit from data-driven insights.   

The solution can instantly be activated in the compatible models, causing no downtime in the integration process. The integrated solution thus will help fleet managers in route optimisation, fuel efficiency and eliminating idle times. 

The connectivity capabilities of Renault vehicles can be activated via remote or contactless access, enabling customers to record brand-specific data points, including electric vehicles (EVs). The solution is available for all Renault cars and vans, operating in any field from construction to food delivery while setting optimal conditions for managing mixed fleets of any size. 

Christoph Ludewig, Vice President of OEM Europe at Geotab, says the internal combustion engine (ICE) and EV technology will continue to co-exist in the coming years and fleet managers need a solution to handle both seamlessly on one platform. “The ability to handle mixed fleets is essential as we transition to an EV future.”
