Geotab is a fleet-management solution that, when partnered with ProntoForms, provides information relevant to the operation and maintenance of fleet vehicles in your ProntoForm. Using the ProntoForms add-in, you can automatically populate fields in your forms from data collected in the GeoTab software.

This article will discuss how to add the ProntoForms add-in to your Geotab Portal.

Prerequisites

To use the ProntoForms Geotab integration, you will need:

  • an active MyGeotab account
  • an active ProntoForms account
  • the ProntoForms app installed on mobile devices
  • (if using) the Geotab Drive app installed on mobile devices

As the integration uses a JSON to load the add-in from an S3 bucket, the person setting up the integration requires appropriate permissions in the MyGeotab Portal.
