(LP) has announced a partnership with TomTom Telematics (TTT) where LP will offer cloud-based fleet management technology to its corporate customers as part of a strategy to deliver 'Any car, Anytime, Anywhere,' Amsterdam.
LP customers will be able to access TTT’s connected car solutions such as webfleet to help fleet and mobility managers improve performance by providing real-time data on key fleet metrics. For drivers, car connectivity aims to deliver smarter mobility solutions to improve efficiency on the road.
TTT's Telematics Service Platform will also be used by LP, enabling them to optimize areas such as vehicle maintenance and contract management.
Thomas Schmidt, managing director TTT, said: “The agreement with LeasePlan shows how we are focused on widening our portfolio of business customers. Giving a leasing company access to the power of the TomTom Telematics Service Platform on an international scale provides further evidence of our connected-car strategy for the future. Vehicles will increasingly be connected to back-end services in the future, allowing us to create all kinds of new services for large fleet service providers, such as vehicle maintenance and maintenance alerts for leasing companies.”
