TomTom Business Solutions Partners with Service Pro®'s Field Service Management to Provide Fleet Efficiencies
CONCORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Business Solutions, a leading provider of advanced GPS and fleet
management solutions, today announced a partnership with MSI
Data to integrate their Service Pro® Field Service
Management software with TomTom (News - Alert) WEBFLEET®. Service Pro® users
gain access to vehicle location and accurate travel time information
allowing them to offer a more reliable service to their customers.
"Proactive communication with customers and compliance with
appointment ETA windows is one of the most important indicators of
success for field service businesses," said Harvey Shovers,
president of MSI (News - Alert) Data. "By integrating TomTom's WEBFLEET service with
Service Pro, we are pleased to provide a single solution for addressing
this issue for the field service marketplace."
A recent TomTom survey showed that 66 percent of service customers
expect a maximum of two hours for service delivery windows, and 74
percent say that late arrivals or missed appointments can be a reason
for losing business.
"For service businesses delivering on your promises is key," said
Matt Curtis, software alliance manager for TomTom Business Solutions. "With
a focus on getting the right technician to the right place quickly and
safely, this integrated approach is a win for everyone. We are
excited to work with the Service Pro team to help organizations become
more efficient with a comprehensive field service management offering
forservice technicians and vehicle fleets."
By adding TomTom WEBFLEET functionality and Service Pro's integrated
solution users can more accurately dispatch the driver based on actual
travel time data calculated in real-time by TomTom. Sending the 'fastest
to arrive' over the nearest to the destination is an innovative way of
dispatching that helps businesses meet customer ETA expectations.

monitor and manage the activities of their vehicles and mobile
