TomTom Business Solutions, a European provider of fleet management solutions, has entered into a strategic partnership with DAKO, a European provider of solutions for regulatory worktime and driving time compliance based on the use of tachographs. In the near future, the ability to download data remotely from a tachograph will be included in TomTom Business Solutions’ WEBFLEET offerings, using the standard in vehicle on-board unit TomTom LINK 510, according to TomTom.
As part of the partnership, the two companies will collaborate on integrating fleet management and tachograph services. Both companies continue to individually develop and launch their own products. TomTom will integrate the new capability into its IO27001 certified WEBFLEET platform and plans to come out with a product for the remote-controlled download of tachograph data and its compliant data analysis and long term archiving during the second quarter of this year.
TomTom said it now actively manages more than 250,000 vehicles with WEBFLEET and services more than 20,000 business clients.
