The less time your vehicles take to reach their destinations, the more loads they can transport and deliveries they can make. Time is money, and you don’t want to waste yours while your vehicles sit in traffic.

An extra 37 minutes per day amounts to 141 hours per year — per vehicle. What is that costing your company?

The right tools can make a significant impact on your bottom line. Business critical fleet information includes locating your vehicles on a map, keeping an eye on traffic, monitoring current orders and receiving automatic notifications as their status changes.

Real-time solutions

How do you keep control of your fleet? TomTom’s WEBFLEET Mobile Applications gives you access to information that enables you to stay in control of your operation, wherever you are. All you need is a smartphone or flash supported tablet, and you’re able to implement tighter quality control across your business.

Revolutionary tools

  • Manage on the move: WEBFLEET Mobile makes fleet management easy. With a handy app on your smartphone, you can view and control your dispersed operation, anytime and anywhere. WEBFLEET Mobile helps you to increase efficiency because it shows at a glance where your vehicles are and which ones are available, enabling you to send the best placed person for a new job. Monitoring the activity of your vehicles in the field also enables you to spot where changes need to be made to increase performance.
  • Offer better customer service: If a customer has a query, you can summon up the relevant information in seconds. See at a glance where your drivers have been, their current position and the status of the orders they’re working on. Keep clients impressed with your service offering by keeping them informed when things aren’t going to plan, when they need an ETA, or manage the relationship if an order is overdue before the phone rings with a complaint. Best of all, you can handle it from the road.
