LoJack Corp. and TomTom have entered into a strategic alliance to provide fleet telematics and vehicle protection services to small- and medium-sized businesses, commercial fleets, automotive dealerships and law enforcement agencies.
Through this alliance, LoJack will offer fleet telematics solutions beginning in the first quarter of 2013. In the second half of the year, LoJack plans to deliver additional solutions for automotive dealerships and consumers.
LoJack will market, install and service a range of TomTom Business Solutions products and services, including its SaaS fleet management service – Webfleet. The LoJack offering will provide business owners the opportunity to use GPS/GSM technology to address higher fuel costs, optimize routing with real-time traffic data, and address unsafe driving behavior with Webfleet.
These services allow business owners the opportunity to operate their vehicles more efficiently and profitably, while providing increased asset protection, greater customer service and employee satisfaction. The two organizations will also integrate TomTom’s hardware, software, back-end data and SaaS services with LoJack’s Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network technology.
“This strategic alliance enables both companies to strengthen their position as best-in-class providers of automotive technology,” said Thomas Schmidt, TomTom Business Solutions, managing director. “LoJack’s far-reaching market presence will introduce TomTom’s fleet management technology to new business markets in North America and enable existing LoJack customers to benefit from a full fleet management solution.”
