Data collected by business vehicles during personal trips can now remain private.
With the launch of a new Privacy Mode, both drivers and dispatchers can now temporarily shield vehicle tracking within their MyGeotab fleet management application.
Privacy Mode is specifically designed for drivers who may use work vehicles on their personal time or in the event that it is an organizational requirement that exact locations of drivers be unidentifiable in a particular zone.
Privacy Mode can be set manually or automatically. For example, the system can be programmed to turn on Privacy Mode during specific times of the day or in specific geographic regions.
“Data privacy continues to make its way higher up on the priority list for fleet managers,” said Neil Cawse, CEO at Geotab. “Geotab’s new Privacy Mode feature provides fleet managers with another level of customization for their telematics solution without limiting the richness and utility of the data available to them.”
