By combining TomTom WEBFLEET and Sage Live, the collaboration will deliver real-time accounting for companies with fleets of vehicles. WEBFLEET, the award-winning TomTom Telematics fleet management service, is used by small to large businesses to help improve vehicle performance, save fuel, support drivers and increase overall fleet efficiency. The combined solution will allow Sage Live customers to automatically view fleet data from connected vehicles – including trucks, light commercial vehicles and passenger cars.
“By partnering with Sage, we are helping to create a more modern and responsive accounting environment, one that capitalises on cloud technology and the connected car to drive cost savings for our customers,” said Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director at TomTom Telematics. “The new software integration will offer a vital service for companies that don’t necessarily need to track and trace their sales or engineering teams on a map, but are interested in getting other core vehicle data into their financial systems.”
“Partnering with TomTom Telematics allows us to harness the power of the connected car for accounting purposes,” said Jennifer Warawa, EVP of Product Marketing at Sage. “It also reinforces Sage’s position as the most innovative cloud accounting platform on the market. Providing real-time accounting for vehicle fleets helps make the process more transparent and convenient, and puts companies in greater control of their finances.”
The collaboration was formally introduced at the Sage Summit 2016 in Chicago. The software integration will be available for the US and UK market first, with regionalised versions for France, Germany and Spain alongside other European countries coming soon during Q4.
