Route4Me’s Telematics Integration with TomTom WEBFLEET
Route4Me partnership with TomTom WEBFLEET provides integrated route optimization planning, dispatch, navigation and vehicle tracking.
Establishing the WEBFLEET Connection
To establish a telematics connection, first log into your Route4Me account. On the menu to the left, click “Settings” → “Telematics Gateway”.
Click “Add Telematics Connection”.
Type in a name for your connection (it can be anything, such as a company name).
Select “TomTom” in the “Telematics Vendors” drop-down menu.
Enter the API key provided by TomTom: e0177d3a-ee00-4235-aa5b-d0af3e54c653
Type in your WEBFLEET account name in the “Account ID” field.
Next, type in your WEBFLEET username and password.
Finally, click the authorization checkbox at the bottom of the window.
Click “Save” when you’re done.
Viewing Your WEBFLEET Vehicles in Route4Me
After connecting to your WEBFKEET account, your WEBFLEET vehicles are automatically imported and re-synchronized into the account of the corresponding Route4Me user. When tracking data is captured from WEBFLEET, then data sent to Route4Me is evaluated to determine which vehicle (by ID) is associated with this connected vehicle ID. The last-known active route for the corresponding Route4Me vehicle ID is identified, and tracking data is appended into this route’s tracking history.
To access your vehicles list, go to “Team” → “Vehicles”.
All imported vehicle data will be available in this section.
New vehicles are automatically reconciled every minute. You can link a vehicle to a route in two ways: during the route planning process or after the route has been planned.
To link the vehicle to a route during the route planning process, click the “User” tab, then select the appropriate vehicle in the “Assign Vehicle” drop-down list.
To link the vehicle to a planned route, click “Assign Vehicle” in the Routes List.
Data streaming in from WEBFLEET automatically gets associated with that vehicle ID. You will be able to track vehicle activity in the Route Editor or in the Routes Map section. To bring up your vehicle location and tracking history on the map, click “Tracking” → hover your mouse cursor over “Route” → select the timeframe for which you want to show tracking history.
NOTE: It may take up to 60 seconds for your vehicles to show up on the route map.
Route plans are instantly dispatched to TomTom PRO Driver Terminals installed in vehicles, so drivers have instant access to all orders – they simply accept, execute and complete each order. Managers have real-time visibility of delivery ETAs and electronic proof of delivery/service.
