TomTom, the World's leading provider of location and navigation solutions, has extended its Business Solutions into the Cork area through a partnership with technology experts V Mobile.
TomTom Business Solutions has a proven track record in the delivery of cost effective driving technology across continental Europe. Its extension across Ireland will see a series of products and services, which will improve cost savings for firms that run fleet vehicles.
Since launching into Ireland in March, TomTom Business Solutions has continued to expand through a network of resellers – all of whom are locally based companies or individuals.
Philip Bailie, Account Manager, TomTom Ireland said: ‘It's a significant step forward for TomTom Business Solutions to have a local reseller in the Cork area. Now we will see our solutions specifically tailored to the needs of local businesses, enabling them to reduce their costs, become more efficient and keep their staff safe on the roads.’
‘In Ireland around 30% of companies with vehicle fleets currently use GPS tracking technology. This number is set to increase significantly as more companies with fleets see an immediate return on investment when they use this type of technology, which enables them to manage their vehicles much more cost effectively’.
Mark McCarthy , MD of V Mobile added: ‘TomTom is synonymous with efficient driving and cost savings and our team is poised to bring this technology to local businesses who can benefit from using this technology. Our knowledge of the local market means that we are well positioned to effectively develop TomTom Business Solutions within the Cork area, and we are looking forward to working with a world leader in fleet management technology’.
TomTom has spent many years developing specialist technology that delivers information which has a direct impact on business efficiency. This enables businesses to provide a better service, increase productivity, generate more profit and ensure sustainability.
