TomTom Telematics has launched a new programme called OEM.connect, which allows vehicle manufacturers to connect with the TomTom Telematics Service Platform.
It will enable the use of TomTom Webfleet and Nextfleet using the vehicle’s factory fitted connectivity systems.
The owners and users of OEM.connect equipped vehicles can then access the standard TomTom Telematics’ applications, which help boost the efficiency, productivity and safety of their fleet operations.
If a fleet is made up of cars, light commercial vehicles or trucks from different manufacturers, the data from each vehicle will be presented to the user in the same standardised way on the same interface. This makes comparison and analysis simple.
Car manufacturers get the full advantage of TomTom Telematics’ experience in the connected car space and wide geographical scope.
“With more than 20 years’ experience in telematics and fleet management,” said Thomas Becher, VP business development at TomTom Telematics, “we have demonstrated through our work with leading car makers like Groupe PSA and Renault and the use of BMW CarData, that our expertise is the key to unlocking the considerable financial and end-user value of vehicle connectivity.”
