Business management in plain English. No Lats and Longs – plain English descriptions of who did what, where and when. We give you and your employees the solid information to answer the tougher question … why???

Customer Care Simplified
  • NEW Software setup is a sit-back-and-relax experience. Machine compatibility is pre-checked before installation. A couple of mouse clicks is all that it takes and you are ready to run.
    NEW Users no longer require administrator rights.
    NEW Checkmate intelligently and automatically processes your data in the background on the computer – it’s all automatic - no manual updating, importing or processing
    NEW Throughout Checkmate 5, automatic troubleshooting pop-up alerts will appear if errors happen. For example if you have vehicles in range of your downloader and you have forgotten to add them – Checkmate will popup an alert to help you to add them. If there are any problems with the vehicle hardware – for example the GPS antenna isn’t plugged into a unit – you will be notified. Overall this drastically reduces the need for onsite support.
    NEW Automatic email notifications are sent of any problems in the system.
    NEW Easy access to the Create Vehicle Test Key now in the Tools menu to make it easy to program Geotab blue keys for vehicle diagnostic or test mode.
    NEW Easily create Accident Data Keys or Lost Data Keys from the Tools menu

The New look of Simplicity

    NEW Your maps – no problem. Checkmate 5 now seamlessly allows you to integrate custom maps into the product. You can build your own maps using industry standard tools and copy them to your maps directory to have them automatically appear inside Geotab. You can even place your custom maps as a layer on top of Microsoft MapPoint – great for municipal fleets, new home developers, off-road fleets, and mining operations etc…who maintain and update their own maps frequently but need MapPoint for street level perspective outside of their jurisdiction.
    NEW Viewing multiple exceptions for a single location record has been enhanced – a new star alert is created for each exception. A new point icon has been added for points where the speed is excessive making it simple to spot poor driving.
    NEW The auto-refresh function allows you to keep a map open while the screen refreshes as new driver data comes in – used for either passive or live data.
    NEW More powerful tools, more information = less training. That’s the Geotab philosophy. Training new users takes minutes not days. A new selection screen makes viewing a trip and generating reports more seamless and easier to understand.
    NEW Multiple simultaneous maps are now support for both MapPoint (North America and Europe) and ESRI (International customers).
    NEW Automatic refresh of trips display when creating rules or new data is added whether RF, key or live.
