GOAL: TomTom Bridge to aid fleet efficiency
TomTom are aiming to help businesses achieve their efficiency goals by launching TomTom Bridge.
The single device, which enables the integration of TomTom technology with business-developed applications for the first time, is billed as helping fleets ‘work smarter and move faster’.
A TomTom platform for developers enables businesses to easily integrate their own applications with TomTom navigation technology, which is accessed via the Bridge device.
The TomTom Bridge device offers a ‘rugged, industrial design’, 7-inch screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and comes equipped with lifetime TomTom Maps and TomTom Traffic.
It includes new features such as Near-Field Communication, camera, Wi-Fi and a 3G modem and becomes available later this year.
Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director at TomTom, said: “TomTom Bridge opens up a world of possibilities to every business that runs a fleet of vehicles.
“We have designed TomTom Bridge to be an easy and flexible way for businesses to develop applications that seamlessly connect to TomTom technology.
“TomTom Bridge offers a new way for any type of business on the move to harness the power of our technology to work more efficiently, saving time and money.”
