TomTom Telematics' Webfleet has a new look and feel

Six telematics providers have something new and improved to offer the market.

TomTom Telematics has launched a new product line-up to enable faster, more efficient, fleet management. Its Webfleet software-as-a-service solution has been completely rebuilt and includes new features and a fresh, more intuitive user experience that is said to include advanced customisation capabilities. The revamped software is enhanced when coupled with the new range of TomTom PRO driver terminals.

Teletrac Navman has launched a new seatbelt monitoring product to its Director for Transport platform that provides a complete overview of driver seatbelt usage across their entire fleet, with real-time alerts and scheduled reporting, to identify drivers who aren’t wearing seatbelts, as well as recording those who routinely fail to wear them.

Pie is launching a London Lorry Route Approver (LLRA) app. It boasts all the features of the current cloud-based LLRA, such as generating HGV-compliant routes (tailored to the vehicle size, avoiding various width, weight and height restrictions) as well as securing instant, automatic approval from local councils. The app draws on Mapbox and OpenStreetMap technology to deliver real-time, compliant routes with live traffic conditions and turn-by-turn instructions, as well as send alerts when the driver goes off a London Lorry Control Scheme-compliant route.

Logistics data unifier and aggregator GateHouse Logistics has released an updated version of its ghSecure module to help shippers to better combat high-value road theft. With ghSecure, lanes and multiple associated secure routes can be defined. Each truck is then monitored using geofences around the designated routes to create secure corridors and parking locations. If a vehicle leaves a designated corridor or makes an unscheduled stop at a non-secure parking location, shippers are immediately notified.

Intelligent Telematics has rebranded its single- and dual-camera products under the SureCam brand, as well as unveiling a restyled corporate identity, including a refresh of its website, https://is.gd/nuxegu. The changes coincide with a move in headquarters to Reading that also includes a workforce expansion.

Cloud-based video telematics provider VisionTrack is providing a white-label solution for new-to-market commercial fleet insurer Camatics. As part of the deal, its policyholders will have their own dedicated online portal and real-time app, instant FNOL (first notification of loss) alerts to speed up incident reporting, and instant access to incident CCTV footage.
