TomTom have unveiled a new all-in-one tachograph solution which allows businesses to manage driving time compliance more efficiently.
A ‘one-stop shop for transport companies that have to deal with a mixed set of tachographs’, the WEBFLEET Tachograph Manager uses TomTom’s award-winning fleet management system.
It complies with national and European legislation by offering remote and manual download, archiving and analysis of tachograph data.
The solution will enter the UK market on August 1.
Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of TomTom Business Solutions, said: “Driving-time compliance is an issue of major concern for transport companies, involving a significant investment of time and resource.
“Failure to comply with regulations can result in severe financial penalties.
“WEBFLEET brings fleet management and working-time compliance together in one, unified system.
“By eliminating the need for separate solutions, businesses are able to improve efficiency and cut down on time-consuming administration.”
Remote download of tachograph data is achieved through connection with TomTom’s LINK on-board unit, meaning no additional hardware is required.
All remote downloads for driver card and mass storage of the tachograph can then be scheduled automatically to ensure deadlines are never missed.
Company cards and related data are stored at a secure data centre, eliminating the risk of cards being lost or fraudulently used and minimising potential business disruption.
All tachograph and driver card information can be accessed from any computer by authorized users via the web-based service.
For tachographs that do not have remote download capability, the deadline manager allows reminders to be set when manual download is required or when driver cards must be renewed.
Data is archived for two years and analytic tools create reports detailing driver infringements and potential fines.
