PSA Group and TomTom Telematics have announced that TomTom’s Webfleet fleet management solution will be available for all connected Peugeot, Citroën, and DS fleet vehicles.
The Webfleet platform will use the data sent by the manufacturer-fitted telematics units of Peugeot, Citroën and DS cars – a first alliance of its kind with a car manufacturer for TomTom Telematics.
“We see an increasing number of vehicles entering the market with pre-installed mobile connectivity. Our Webfleet platform can provide a valuable service to the owners and users of those vehicles. Customers with Peugeot, Citroën and DS connected vehicles will now have easier access to Europe’s leading fleet management platform to help improve fleet efficiency, customer services and overall business performance,’ said Thomas Schmidt, managing director at TomTom Telematics.
Brigitte Courtehoux, head of the connected services and new mobility solutions business unit of PSA Group, added, ‘Our ambition is to provide customers with fully-connected vehicle fleets as part of our ‘Connect Fleet Management’ programme as well as a value-added service from market-leading partners. This innovative proposal allows customers to select services that best fit their company’s needs, helping to save time and money with an easy solution designed to significantly reduce the total cost of ownership. Collaborations like with TomTom Telematics enable us to provide a top-quality reliable service throughout Europe. In this way, PSA Group is furthering its strategy as a mobility provider.’
As of next quarter, the service will become accessible in France, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands.
