CONCORD, Mass., Mar 27, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — TomTom has released an updated version of its WEBFLEET Mobile fleet management app, extending use to tablets and making fleet management more accessible for managers on the move.

WEBFLEET® Mobile gives businesses the flexibility needed to inform customers at all times and operate an efficient vehicle fleet and workforce.

New functionality allows users to view details for all current orders, manage workflow and meet service agreements. New jobs can be sent straight from the smart phone or tablet to a field workers’ TomTom PRO device, providing them with all critical information about the job. WEBFLEET Mobile displays an accurate time of arrival, which can be used to inform the customer.

“The latest version of WEBFLEET Mobile aims to make the service even more accessible for business users by using devices they already carry with them, regardless of whether they are in the office, at home or on the road,” said Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director TomTom Business Solutions.

“Tablet usage is growing rapidly, accounting for around 30 percent of non-PC internet traffic worldwide, and we realize many of our customers utilize this technology as a key business tool. Order management functionality ensures workflow is never disrupted, providing peace of mind that high standards of service and productivity will be maintained.”

WEBFLEET Mobile 1.2 also displays tracks on the map for selected trips by date and vehicle.

Available across 21 countries in North America, Europe, Australia and South Africa, the app supports seven different languages — English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish — and is available in app stores for TomTom’s 15,000 business customers.

Pricing and availability

WEBFLEET Mobile 1.2 is available for download in the Apple App Store and Android Market priced at $9.99 USD.
