TomTom Telematics launched OEM.connect programme for car manufacturers
TomTom Telematics has launched the OEM.connect programme. This programme uses a multi-stage approach to enable car manufacturers to connect with the TomTom Telematics Service Platform for fleet management solutions like Webfleet and Nextfleet.
After joining OEM.connect, manufacturers’ vehicles with line fitted connectivity will roll off the production line Webfleet and Nextfleet ready. The owners of these vehicles can access the standard TomTom Telematics’ applications. When a fleet is made of vehicles from different manufacturers, the data from each vehicle will be presented to the user in the same standardised way on the same interface.
“With more than 20 years’ experience in telematics and fleet management,” said Thomas Becher, VP Business Development, 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.”
TomTom Telematics was recently acquired by Bridgestone.
