TomTom Telematics has launched a new product lineup to enable faster, more efficient fleet management, the company said.
The company’s revamped WebFleet software-as-a-service system boasts new features and “a fresh, more intuitive user experience that includes advanced customization capabilities,” according to Amsterdam-based TomTom Telematics.
The WebFleet software and the new range of TomTom PRO driver terminals “provide more effective job dispatch, while delivering market-leading routing, navigation and traffic information.”
“We have drawn upon more than 18 years’ fleet management expertise to develop our next-generation products, incorporating feedback from our 49,000-strong global customer base,” said Thomas Schmidt, managing director of TomTom Telematics.
“The simple and clean WebFleet interface offers a superior user experience and new architecture enables quicker development of core features. It also facilitates faster development and deployment of connected partner applications, enabling the technology to adapt and evolve according to customers’ needs.”
One of the newly enhanced features enables managers to pre-plan specific routes in New WebFleet using an increased range of criteria to help ensure drivers follow specified routes, or avoid certain locations, according to the company. The routes then can be sent directly to drivers via the new TomTom PRO 5350/7350 driver terminals.
“This is particularly valuable for industries where drivers are required to follow pre-defined routes, such as waste management, or for avoiding accident hotspots,” the company said.
Among other enhancements, WebFleet maps and reports can be more extensively customized to suit individual preferences, delivering fleet insights faster, according to the company. The interface also has been optimized for tablets.
New WebFleet is available to all TomTom Telematics customers across 60 countries, in 13 languages. The new TomTom PRO driver terminals are available throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, the company noted. In April, they will be available in the United States, Canada, Chile and Mexico.
