Transport, construction and agriculture companies can check the status of trailers, generators and more alongside their vehicles.
TomTom Telematics has officially added a new feature to their WEBFLEET fleet management solution.
Asset Tracking gives companies visibility over the position and usage of their powered assets, such as trailers, generators and other equipment.
From a single interface, the position of both vehicles and assets are displayed on a clear map view. Users can choose to be alerted when an asset is being used, when it leaves a designated area or when any motion is detected. This helps reduce both the risk of theft and the likelihood of improper usage. Notifications can also be setup to alert the user when maintenance is required, which helps to preserve the value of the asset.
“Our focus is always on providing insight and making the working process simpler, safer and more efficient,” said Paul Verheijen, VP Product Management, TomTom Telematics. “And that’s precisely what Asset Tracking does.
“The user can find out the location of each asset in seconds, whether it’s on-site or off. If they want more detail, they can get instant reports 24/7 listing current position, trip, maintenance, input and all the other details regarding how the asset is being used. And they can setup a maintenance notification based on the odometer, operating time or time since the last maintenance – whatever is most suitable for judging that an asset needs to be serviced.
“Essentially, it provides a host of functionalities that support the user to get the most value and productivity out of each specific asset.”
