TomTom, Webfleet partner on mobile solution

Webfleet Solutions, a Bridgestone company, has partnered with TomTom (TOM2) to launch the Webfleet Work App and TomTom GO Fleet App into the market. The companies combined their expertise to create a single source for fleet managers and drivers to address the unique set of challenges they face every day, including route compliance, on-time deliveries and safety concerns, they noted in a press release.

Fleet managers and their drivers have access to a wide range of workforce management features without the need for any additional hardware, the companies noted. This includes locating vehicles, logging working times, registering drivers, setting trip modes, managing orders and schedules and staying in touch with the back office via two-way communication.   

TomTom GO Fleet application allows drivers to always have the most up-to-date maps with traffic and navigation at their fingertips in a single location. They can automatically start their route to their order destination conveniently from the Work App, and fleet managers benefit from real-time visibility of the current ETA and destination.

Advanced truck routing is also available based on their vehicle’s attributes, cargo type, local regulations and road characteristics. In addition, TomTom GO Fleet assists truck drivers by locating dedicated points of interest (POIs) for large vehicles such as parking and fuel stations, and by offering the most up-to-date maps, even when there is no connectivity. The app includes ETAs and real-time traffic info, which will enable drivers to meet deadlines with ease and lower fuel costs.

Webfleet Work App is now available for all Webfleet Solutions customers who have a LINK 740/710/530/510/410 tracking device installed. The option for mobile tracking – without any hardware installation necessary – will be available in the coming months.

Webfleet Solutions was formerly known as TomTom Telematics until April 2019 when it was acquired by Bridgestone Europe, a subsidiary of Bridgestone Corp. While Webfleet Solutions no longer operates as a business unit of TomTom, the two remain collaborative and aligned as both companies seek to create a more sustainable future of mobility.
