LeasePlan and TomTom Telematics to offer fleet management with cloud-based tech
LeasePlan is to offer latest fleet management technology to its corporate customers under a new partnership with TomTom.
Forming part of LeasePlan’s ‘Any car, Anytime, Anywhere’ service – which is being promoted through a new global campaign – the agreement enables customers in all of LeasePlan’s markets to access TomTom’s cloud-based fleet management and connected car solutions, including Webfleet, in all markets where the firms have a joint footprint.
The solutions will provide fleets with real-time data on key fleet metrics while also supporting customer compliance with the forthcoming GDPR data privacy legislation. This will also benefit drivers through smarter mobility solutions.
Fleet customers will also benefit from LeasePlan’s deployment of the cloud-based TomTom Telematics Service Platform, which will bring developments in areas such as vehicle maintenance and contract management.
Tex Gunning, CEO LeasePlan, said the partnership with TomTom Telematics “is a great proof point of our digital approach”. He added: “From now on, we will be able to provide our customers with real-time data on key fleet management metrics such as vehicle maintenance requirements and carbon dioxide emissions. For us, this is the future of mobility.”
Thomas Schmidt, managing director TomTom Telematics, commented: “Giving a leasing company access to the power of the TomTom Telematics Service Platform on an international scale provides further evidence of our connected car strategy for the future. Vehicles will increasingly be connected to back-end services in the future, allowing us to create all kinds of new services for large fleet service providers, such as vehicle maintenance and maintenance alerts for leasing companies.”
