TomTom (TOM2) has launched an open developer portal for TomTom Bridge enabling the easy integration of business applications with TomTom technologies. AppCarousel and Page Up are the first partners to develop solutions.
The new portal gives developers, integrators and value added partners an open platform to build business apps. Developers will get access to Software Developer Kits*, including tips on how to best use this flexible platform.
"TomTom Bridge opens up a world of possibilities for every business that runs a fleet of vehicles," says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director at TomTom. "We believe that every business on the move should be able to harness the power of our technology to work more efficiently and bring exciting new services. Now this new developer platform makes it easier to integrate business applications with TomTom technologies."
AppCarousel provides TomTom a fully customisable app store for businesses to match their choice of apps, branding and features. Page Up is enabling a series of mobile solutions with Near Field Communication and bar code scanner, digital signature app and connection to a Bluetooth printer.
The developer portal also offers detailed information on Application Programming Interface, a document library, case studies and links to TomTom content downloads.
