TomTom Telematics’ OptiDrive 360 has received the Techies 2015 award on the modality of Telematics. Techies are the only dedicated technology awards for the fleet industry, recognising the modern systems and processes that impact business car operators’ daily lives.
Techies 2015 judges praised the software for taking a clever approach to how it encourages users to change their driving style. They also valued the software’s ability to tell the driver exactly when to ease off the throttle when approaching traffic lights, roundabouts or other hazards, with the possibility of real economy improvements across fleets.
OptiDrive 360 received as well the Fleet Innovation Award because the advantages for companies reach beyond cost reduction. “OptiDrive 360 makes your fleet drive greener and safer and drivers experience less stress behind the wheel”, according to the press release published on Link2Fleet’s website.
In this case, the jury praised how the application ensures efficient routing and is suitable for all types of fleets, including large and small cars and vans. The jury was also positive about the fact that OptiDrive 360 can be deployed with its default settings but is also customizable.
