AMSTERDAM--June 5, 2013: TomTom Business Solutions today unveils the new WEBFLEET Tachograph Manager at the transport logistic show in Munich.

“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.”

Using TomTom's award-winning fleet management system, WEBFLEET Tachograph Manager is an all-in-one solution, which allows businesses to manage driving-time compliance efficiently. It supports remote and manual download, archiving and analysis of tachograph data to comply with national and European legislation. WEBFLEET Tachograph manager provides a one-stop shop for transport companies that have to deal with a mixed set of tachographs in their vehicle fleet.

TomTom now offers an integrated solution for fleet efficiency and compliance management.

"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," said Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of TomTom Business Solutions.

"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 a 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.

The remote download solution offers transport managers and business owners more reliability because of TomTom's seamless download process. The system provides end-to-end ownership of the authentication process that greatly reduces IT complexity and the risk of disruptions to the download. Company cards and related data are stored at a secure data centre, eliminating the risk of cards being lost or fraudulently used and minimises potential business disruption. All tachograph and driver card information can be accessed from any computer by authorized users via the reliable 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. This allows both types of tachograph to be managed using a single system.

Data is archived for two years and analytic tools create reports detailing driver infringements and potential fines.

WEBFLEET Tachograph Manager is available in Germany on July 1 2013 and on August 1 2013 in other European countries.
