TomTom and Targa Telematics have announced a new multiyear agreement. The deal will allow TomTom’s Maps APIs to be used by Targa Telematics to enhance the vehicle management and smart mobility solutions offered to its customers.
TomTom’s Search API, which companies use to understand where their fleets are located, will be integrated in Targa Telematics products and TomTom’s Routing API will enable Targa Telematics customers to perform trip analyses and find the best routes.
“Leading players in fleet management and smart mobility services, such as Targa Telematics, greatly benefit from TomTom’s range of Maps APIs and dependable customer support,” said Anders Truelsen, managing director of TomTom Enterprise. “We are proud that TomTom is rapidly becoming the location technology supplier of choice for the fleet industry.”
Giorgia Paladin, head of procurement at Targa Telematics, added: “Targa Telematics has always been at the forefront in supporting businesses to meet the consistently growing need of a more sustainable and secure approach to mobility. Given this evolving scenario, we want to continue on this path.
“Through this deal with TomTom, our customers will continue benefiting from innovative solutions with outstanding coverage across Europe.”
The TomTom agreement comes shortly after Targa Telematics announced it had developed a tool to monitor the efficiency and profitability of an electric conversion of fleet vehicles.
Called Targa Best Choice, it analyses the fleet to identify cost saving opportunities and environmental impact and evaluates the cars that can be replaced with electric models.
