TomTom launches fleet maintenance planning

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Vehicle maintenance planning from TomTom Business Solutions is set to help businesses optimise fleet efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, says the company.

Energy efficiency of vehicles can be improved by as much as 10%, according to a recent research by the Centre for Climate and Energy Solutions.

“Effective maintenance planning coupled with TomTom technologies that improve driver performance, such as Active Driver Feedback, provides businesses with the tools to achieve these cost savings,” says Thomas Schmidt, managing director TomTom Business Solutions.  “Costly repair bills can be avoided and the impact on the environment is minimized.”

The new tool enables companies to make use of the real measured mileage from the vehicle to plan their vehicle maintenance intervals.  In addition, more efficient processes for vehicle maintenance minimise vehicle downtime and the associated business costs, he says.

Maintenance scheduling complements the Webfleet product and is available, at no charge for the 13,000-business users spread across Europe, North America, South Africa and Australia.
