TomTom Telematics launches Asset Tracking allowing companies to monitor their powered assets @TomTomWEBFLEET

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.
