In terms of accounting, our current accounting software Exchequer does not talk to BigChange, therefore there should be customized reports created to support it. The most complicated option is testing the report and understanding what is needed. The best job BigChange does is job related as described in previous questions.

Geotab is a good product. I think ultimately it falls short in the clunky-ness of the program. If you are not intending to have users utilize the website and instead are going to feed data into a BI tool I think it would be a great product. I think if you are aiming to have the website utilized by your users and are looking for a one-stop-shop to drive your end-users to for reporting and data and are aiming to manage the program out of the program itself—I would not recommend it. I think the UI and UX clunky-ness is a hindrance and will lead to a lot of training because the learning curve is so steep. If you have a large Training team owning this and can swing that, it would be fine. However, if you are scrappy and looking for minimal need to train and re-train and want something intuitive and with a low learning curve, this is not it.

I think ultimately the product itself is good, however, the other competitors in the space have much better UIs and they almost all seem more intuitive. The reporting is easier to create and not just based in Excel and they feel more developed. I think that if Geotab were to focus on their UI and UX and really develop it more, there would be a significant bump in customer satisfaction for Geotab and they would be a huge force in the enterprise space.

  • Tracking has allowed us to recover assets from exited employees saving us about $500k.
  • While we could have had a dent in our fuel costs from idling or speeding some of the mechanisms used in the system haven't allowed that to come to fruition.
