TomTom Telematics has announced a collaboration
with SOTI that will see the company’s flagship enterprise mobility
management (EMM) software, MobiControl, be made available to manage TomTom
PRO 8 series driver terminals.
SOTI MobiControl gives fleet managers complete remote
control of the TomTom PRO 8 series, an open-platform device that is customised
with apps to meet the needs of specific users and functions.
Content and user profiles on devices are managed
centrally, so drivers have access to the most appropriate and up-to-date
applications for their specific role, without having to return to base.
SOTI MobiControl offers a feature set, enabling managers
to dynamically control user groups and policies, allowing access to apps,
functionality and content based on a user’s role in the business. Access can
also be determined based on geographical location. The features not only help
to control app usage, but also to manage data costs, for example by not
allowing users to download large files when they are abroad.
“SOTI MobiControl allows customers using TomTom PRO 8
series driver terminals to instantly manage and update devices in the field,
via one secure interface, so they are always fit for purpose. This takes the
complexity out of mobility management and frees up time to focus on core
tasks,” said Oscar Rambaldini, vice president of product management at SOTI.
Taco van der Leij, vice president marketing at TomTom
Telematics, said: “SOTI is a leader in mobile device management, and by
offering MobiControl together with the TomTom PRO 8 series of driver terminals
we are helping businesses ensure that their field teams have the tools they
need to be effective. With hundreds of apps available for WEBFLEET and PRO 8
series driver terminals we are committed to helping our customers to achieve
more with their businesses.”
