TomTom expands fleet management solution


TomTom expands fleet management solution
The TomTom Link device will soon be opened up to allow bluetooth communication with other devices, increasing its functionality substantially.

Vehicle navigation specialist TomTom has extended the integration possibilities of its fleet management solution to help companies manage mobile operations more efficiently.
 
TomTom Business Solutions allows third-party developers to create new applications for use in and around the vehicle.

This is enabled by granting access to the Bluetooth channel on TomTom's in-vehicle LINK device.

By integrating a wide range of mobile hardware devices the functionalities for connected heavy vehicle and commercial light vehicle technology can be expanded.

New applications will allow businesses to enrich data from hardware, such as tyre pressure sensors and temperature control units, with comprehensive information from their vehicle fleet.

TomTom will expand the range of such available solutions by inviting developers to join its partner network.
 
"Our fleet management solutions already integrate seamlessly with hundreds of office systems but now we intend to expand our integration possibilities in the field," says TomTom Business Solutions Managing Director Thomas Schmidt.
 
"Companies can integrate devices for electronic signature capture and barcode scanning to provide immediate proof of delivery to head office," Schmidt says.

"They can also integrate mobile printers for the production of customer invoices and receipts."

TomTom's open API on both its hardware and software enables technology partners to develop seamless integrated applications.

LINK.connect permits data exchange with the in-vehicle tracking device, while WEBFLEET.connect allows data to be transferred to office applications.
 
Information from mobile devices can be enriched by comprehensive data generated from TomTom fleet management technology.

This allows companies to link details, including time, location, vehicle and driver ID, to specific actions such as signature capture.
