The integration, introduced at Geotab Connect 2020, creates a seamless experience—within a single interface—between Lytx's unrivaled video-based telematics platform and Geotab's world-leading fleet management capabilities.
With Geotab's award-winning telematics device found in more than 2 million vehicles around the world, and Lytx's advanced insights derived from more than 120 billion miles of driving data collected, fleet operators will be able to gain unprecedented new levels of insight into their vehicles and drivers.

The Lytx and Geotab integration enables - through a single sign-on - seamless browsing of video and data from Lytx's DriveCam® event recorders through the Geotab platform to help fleet managers understand exactly what is happening in their fleets at any moment. Together, Lytx and Geotab are enabling fleets to manage resources more effectively, achieve stronger compliance to regulatory change and help reduce risk through improving driver behavior.
"Lytx developed the video telematics industry over 20 years ago and continues to lead in providing advanced technologies for safer and more efficient fleets," said Brandon Nixon, Lytx chairman and CEO. "We are thrilled to work with Geotab to help better meet the needs of the fleets we work with and bring access to sophisticated video to many more. This integration, which seamlessly pairs Geotab's exceptional fleet management platform with our own best-in-class video platform will help fleets take their safety, productivity and efficiency to new heights."
Two Technology and Market Leaders Come Together
The Lytx Driver Safety Program stands out in the industry not only for its video and analytic capabilities, but also for its ease of use. Combining machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) with professional review and behavior tagging, the program delivers prescriptive and customized coaching insights to fleet managers – exposing risk and filtering out the noise to help clients focus on what's most important. Lytx leverages MV+AI and onboard sensors to collect information about what's going on inside and around the vehicle.
"Video is an information-rich technology, and with our scale and advanced machine vision and artificial intelligence capabilities, Lytx is the leader in delivering actionable intelligence from video," Nixon added. "This new integration gives fleets the power of the Driver Safety Program and our MV+AI technology to deliver the best safety insights in the industry - now in a single sign-on, integrated experience with the Geotab platform they know and love."
