Visitors at this year’s Commercial Vehicle which was held last week were able to get a first glimpse at TomTom Telematics’ new ruggedised seven-inch driver terminal, the latest edition to the WEBFLEET fleet management platform.
Businesses will be able to host bespoke applications on the terminal to help van and truck drivers capture more information in the field, such as digital signature capture for proof of delivery, vehicle checks and barcode scanning, all on one device.
This latest development extends the WEBFLEET platform, which now has 3 API’s – in the office, in the field and on the driver terminal. With this new API, the extended integration capabilities of WEBFLEET (known as .connect) allow business to streamline their end-to-end processes, where field staff and vehicles become an integrated part of the overall operations. With the wide set of applications already developed by its partners, WEBFLEET sets the standard for developers to seamlessly connect vehicles and mobile workers with the back office*.
The new driver terminal, PRO 8275, combines the earlier announced TomTom Bridge with WEBFLEET and the .connect API capabilities. The device will be on display.
The driver terminal will add flexibility and value to an already strong solution for transport operators. Visitors can see the terminal along with existing applications such as truck navigation, tachograph management, predefined route and itinerary order creation, along with extensive hardware and software integration possibilities in the office and around the vehicle.
TomTom Telematics will also be demonstrating the end to end capability of their WEBFLEET solution at this years Service Management Expo in London’s Excel in June 17th, 18th and 19th where they are hosting the Field Service Demo Zone as well as participating in the Field Service Solutions Theatre which is hosted by Field Service News.
