TomTom Telematics unveiled its new Pro 8 series driver terminals this week at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hannover, Germany.
The driver terminals are connected to the SaaS fleet management platform WebFleet, and are designed to seamlessly integrate information captured in the field into back-end systems and thus enable decision making based on real-time data, the company said.
The new API, PRO.connect offers opportunities to customize the driver terminal with apps to further digitize the workflow process. Applications such as vehicle checks, proof of delivery, question paths and barcode scanning can be integrated into WebFleet workflow.
The PRO 8270 & 8275 come with a mobile device management platform to administer the various apps and workflow scenarios. This gives customers full control over platform and devices, and the ability to service the driver terminal remotely.
“WebFleet and the new TomTom PRO driver terminals give businesses the flexibility they need to operate fleets more efficiently and to improve customer satisfaction,” said Thomas Schmidt, managing director, TomTom Telematics. “By providing both driver and back office information in real-time, they can work better as a team to make smarter decisions.”
Mobile apps, along with other hardware and software applications available for integration are showcased in WebFleets’ App Center.
The new PRO 8 series is based on the TomTom Bridge and is the exclusive device platform that is fully out-of-the-box compatible with TomTom WebFleet. The PRO 8 series offers additional integration capabilities for customised Apps using the new PRO.connect API, and comes with a ready-to-use mobile device management platform.
