New TomTom WORK
Along with the New TomTom GO 510, TomTom GO 710, and TomTom GO 910, TomTom announced a new service in London called TomTom WORK. The system is essentially a tracking system using TomTom GO GPS units in the fleet vehicles as well as a GPRS transmitter to send locatin informatin back to a central location. So, BAM, the consumer product is now fleet enabled and new big volume distribution capabilities are available.
“For as little as €2 a day and with no extra software or technical support required we are offering businesses an efficient, simple and good value solution to plan their day the easy way” said Harold Goddijn, chief executive officer of TomTom. “By connecting owners of fleets of all sizes with their drivers, TomTom WORK will help save time and costs. Additionally it will bring clarity and transparency to businesses and their customers, as well as making the lives of vehicle drivers easier and safer.”
Key elements of the TomTom WORK solution:
* TomTom WEBFLEET: easy to use web-based service, giving access to 24-hour vehicle management and comprehensive reporting tools. TomTom WEBFLEET allows businesses to view their vehicles’ and drivers’ exact locations and manage new tasks
* TomTom LINK: a compact, small unit placed inside each vehicle, allowing users to easily and cost effectively transfer current vehicle positions (using GPS) and other information (via GPRS) automatically to the TomTom WEBFLEET service center
* TomTom GO 710 & TomTom GO 510: TomTom’s newest versions of its award-winning TomTom GO range provide each driver with their own personal navigation system and allows users and fleet owners to communicate with office staff
TomTom WORK is immediately available in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom. TomTom will introduce TomTom WORK in France in Q2 and is looking to expand into other countries in 2006.
