TomTom (Amsterdam, Netherlands) on Tuesday launched a smartphone application designed to provide customers with information about their vehicle fleet. The smartphone application, WEBFLEET Mobile, includes a detailed map which provides a view of the current traffic situation using TomTom’s real-time traffic technology, the TomTom HD Traffic.
The technology allows customers to pinpoint the location of their fleet, obtain information on each vehicle's destination and estimated time of arrival, and gain trip data information such as mileage and timestamps, according to TomTom.
"The app [allows] users to monitor their mobile workforce when they are on the road themselves,” says Thomas Schmidt, managing director at TomTom.
Customers can view text, status or order messages and also send text messages straight to the driver's TomTom navigation device. The product is available across 21 countries in Europe, North America, Australia and South Africa, and supports seven different languages -- Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, according to TomTom.
WEBFLEET Mobile 1.1 is available for download on iOS and Android platforms for $10.
