TomTom and Webfleet launch combined fleet app

Webfleet Solutions has partnered with TomTom to integrate the Webfleet Work App and TomTom Go Fleet App.

The companies have combined their expertise to create a single source for fleet managers and drivers to address route compliance, on-time deliveries and safety concerns.

Webfleet Solutions was formerly known as TomTom telematics, until 2019 when it was acquired by Bridgestone Europe.

The Webfleet Work App provides fleet managers and their drivers with a range of workforce management features without the need for any additional hardware. 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’s Go Fleet application is seamlessly integrated, allowing 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.

Paul Verheijen, vice president product management at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “Webfleet Work App is the perfect solution for businesses and drivers who want to leverage their existing mobile devices to effectively manage day-to-day tasks. Setup and onboarding are quick and easy, allowing great flexibility with an intuitive user interface, making it a perfect combination with the TomTom Go Fleet app. Together we can offer even greater value to our customers providing an integrated solution.”

With Webfleet Work App in conjunction with TomTom Go Fleet, drivers get professional navigation for all types of vehicles. 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 also includes reliable ETAs and real-time traffic info, which will enable drivers to meet deadlines with ease and lower fuel costs.

Mike Schoofs, managing director at TomTom Enterprise, added: “Simplifying location technology and helping to solve challenges for drivers has always been at the heart of TomTom.

“It’s exciting to work with partners who have similar goals as us, like Webfleet Solutions. This collaboration has enabled both companies to integrate what they do best into one solution for professional drivers.”

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.
