July 31, 2012

TomTom Business Solutions has unveiled a new program that combines industry-leading software with TomTom fleet management technology.

The new Software Alliance Program leverages over 100 software partners specializing in a range of offerings, including office automation, CRM, ERP and Field Service Automation sectors as well as specialized industry software for towing, service, and transportation fleets. The program provides users access to TomTom Business Solutions’ set of APIs to enable fleets to integrate vehicle and driver management capabilities, the company said.

Leveraging these APIs and the company’s map data, IQ routes and HD traffic, TomTom and its partners can deploy a host of solutions including quickest ETA vehicle assignment; real-time ETA calculations; two-way communications for dispatching and work-order flow; integrated turn-by-turn navigation; real-time GPS tracking and driver safety features, TomTom added.

“Our fleet customers are already realizing a high degree of value from TomTom’s fleet management solutions and our value-added software partners,” said Michael Geffroy, vice president, TomTom Business Solutions. “Our decision to make more of our core technology freely available to more software companies shows our commitment to partnering.  We believe our new Software Alliance program will lead to greater levels of innovation and value-add to a broader range of commercial fleets.”
