Amsterdam, 22 November 2011 - With the introduction of vehicle maintenance planning TomTom is helping businesses to optimise their fleet's utility and reduce carbon emissions as a result. By ensuring fleets are well-maintained and that driver performance is optimised, the energy efficiency of vehicles can be improved by as much as ten per cent, according to a recent research by the Center 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," said Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director TomTom Business Solutions. "Costly repair bills can be avoided and the impact on the environment is minimised."
With an easy-to-read online maintenance overview fleet operators can keep tabs on forthcoming maintenance such as service intervals and annual inspections. Users can create maintenance tasks per vehicle, copy them to vehicle groups, monitor their status and plan accordingly.
Maintenance scheduling complements the WEBFLEET offering and is instantly available, at no charge for the 13,000 business customers spread across Europe, North America, South Africa and Australia.
