Utilimarc, an industry leader in fleet analytics and authorized Geotab premier reseller, today announced its partnership with Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation. Through this partnership, Utilimarc and Geotab provide utility companies and municipalities with rich data-insights via a combined business intelligence (BI) solution to help solve proliferating problems in the industry including sustainability initiatives and operational efficiencies.

This year at Fleet Forward, I think you could tell that most people were happy to be back at an in-person event rather than virtual. It was amazing to see so many people connecting and re-connecting, catching up with new friends and old colleagues that they haven’t seen in quite some time.

why should we care about greenhouse gasses? Utilimarc blog

Greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, keeping Earth at habitable temperatures. However, with GHGs at an all-time high due, this leads to out-of-control climate conditions that threaten life across the planet.
