Toshiba improves fleet mpg by 27 per cent with TomTom Telematics

London, 7 October 2014
Toshiba’s European retail and sales and service support division has increased fleet mpg by 27 per cent following an investment in TomTom Telematics’ WEBFLEET system.

Toshiba TEC Europe Retail Information Systems introduced the fleet management platform to improve employee safety by monitoring their driving behaviour and to compare the fuel performance of 25 new hybrid cars with its older fleet vehicles.

Vehicle and driving behaviour data is available for Toshiba managers in WEBFLEET. An OptiDrive indicator combines fuel efficiency information from the onboard ecoPLUS diagnostics device, with speeding, idling and braking data to score drivers out of 10 in a column stack chart. This can be used to benchmark drivers across their fleet.

This has not only meant reduced fuel consumption but also means we can focus and report on CO2 reduction said Jonathan Barber, Retail Service Director, Toshiba TEC Europe Retail Information Systems.

An overall 27 per cent increase in miles per gallon is a great result, which we hope to improve further with time

TomTom WEBFLEET has been integrated with Tesseract, Toshiba’s job scheduling software, enabling data to be sent, immediately and seamlessly, from the office to the transport teams in the field.

This technology has proved to be second to none and instrumental in ensuring we provide the best possible service to our customers Barber added.
