MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the fleet telematics market, Frost & Sullivan recognises TomTom Telematics with the 2016 European Frost & Sullivan Fleet Telematics Company of the Year Award. TomTom Telematics has strongly positioned itself in the European fleet telematics market on the strength of its expertise in developing diversified solutions that ensure optimum driver efficiency and operational cost savings for customers. The company's advanced software-as-a-service (SaaS) fleet management platform, WEBFLEET, addresses fleet owners' need to manage time and resources for clients during a fleet operation, ensure driver efficiency, track vehicles in real time, and facilitate workforce management.
"TomTom Telematics assists companies and drivers in effectively managing time and resources through its range of WEBFLEET connected driver terminals, which deliver professional-grade navigation, comprehensive maps, and key routing and traffic information," said Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Sathya Kabirdas. "Importantly, its real-time tracking feature keeps companies informed of driver activities with six updates a minute. This reduces possibilities of miscommunication between the company and the driver."
The TomTom Telematics stable, open application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDKs) enable diverse companies across verticals to create numerous applications suited to their respective environments. Companies can incorporate a range of software and hardware vendors, which aids them in digitising end-to-end business processes and making smarter decisions to achieve business goals. Moreover, the WEBFLEET platform fulfils the green requirements of clients by lowering idling times, speeding, and vehicle maintenance.
TomTom Telematics is strongly positioned to cater to a wide range of customers, from small and medium businesses to very large corporate fleets. To date, more than 350 software and hardware partners have integrated WEBFLEET into their product applications. With 40,000 customers and more than 600,000 active subscriptions at the end of 2015, the company recorded a compound annual growth rate of more than 30 percent since 2006.
