- More insights, more efficiency: Continental’s VDO TIS-Web solution for tachograph data management has been interfaced with Frotcom FMS
- TIS-Web facilitates tachograph data management and provides insightful analyses
- Fleet managers benefit from more efficient data management and ways to optimize their operations
Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany, May 2021. Technology company Continental is supplying Frotcom, a global provider of intelligent fleet management systems, with its tachograph data management solution, VDO TIS-Web. To this end, Frotcom is able to offer their customers, via API, Continental’s data management software VDO TIS-Web into its own fleet management system. This facilitates storing, accessing and analysing data from smart tachographs and ultimately helps fleet companies maximise their efficiency.
Specifically designed to help fleet managers store tachograph data, VDO TIS-Web is the ideal solution to ensure fleets comply with European legal requirements for archiving vehicle and driver data. Fleet managers can simply link their Frotcom account to their TIS-Web account.
Tachograph data downloaded by Frotcom’s fleet management system will then automatically be sent to TIS-Web. The software analyses the data in terms of drivers, vehicles, driving styles and more, providing fleet managers with reports that effectively optimize their operations. It’s also possible to tailor the TIS-Web data analyses to factor in specific local or national regulations so that users only receive information relevant to their respective businesses or countries of operation. Another benefit is that, given TIS-Web is a cloud-based solution, fleet managers can access it from anywhere, even via a smartphone app.
In an increasingly competitive environment, the partnership between Continental and Frotcom aims to help fleets of all industries boost efficiency and remain fit for the future. It will also strengthen both companies’ position as leading providers of fleet and data management solutions.
“At Continental, we are always looking for promising areas of growth. Frotcom is an ever-growing international company with a multitude of customers – the partnerships bring us new possibilities and allows us to tap into new customer groups. We’re very pleased that we can now offer our services to those businesses that are looking for more comprehensive fleet management solutions,” explains Marcello Lucarelli, head EMEA Business Segment Commercial Vehicle Fleet Services at Continental.
Adds Clive Taylor, Commercial Director at Frotcom International: “Helping our customer’s improve their safety, cost efficiency and customer satisfaction are our three major goals. In this sense, VDO TIS-Web is the ideal addition to our fleet management system as it helps us give our customers peace of mind. It’s an intuitive and adaptable solution that makes tachograph data archiving and analyses even simpler and helps our customers all across Europe to achieve 100 percent compliance with regulations.”
