“Our advanced off-the-shelf solution, offering a wealth of functionality, has a proven track record of delivering swift returns for fleets of all sizes due to the speed and ease of its implementation,” said Thomas Schmidt, managing director of TomTom Business Solutions.

The milestone follows sustained growth throughout the first quarter of 2012, with TomTom’s install base increasing by 36% year-on-year.

Leading coffee manufacturer Douwe Egberts has enlisted TomTom to help improve its business efficiency and better manage its vehicle fleet. The Utrecht-based firm has implemented TomTom’s integrated tracking and navigation solution after being impressed by its capabilities throughout an extensive trial period.

“The trial demonstrated a clear return on investment with respect to optimized planning, working hours and efficiency,” said Huub Segers, director service operations at Douwe Egberts.

“We were able to rapidly introduce TomTom technology across our fleet without the need for lengthy development or use of a complex, customised solution,” said Catherine Mason, Clarkson Evans operations manager.
“We have therefore enjoyed a number of immediate operational benefits and look forward to further efficiency gains in the coming months.”
