TCA awards Webfleet with Telematics Monitoring Application accreditation

Webfleet’s new telematics milestone means heavy vehicle commercial operators can have confidence in selecting Bridgestone’s Webfleet as their telematics partner

Bridgestone’s global fleet management solution Webfleet has officially received certification from Transport Certification Australia (TCA) as an Application Service Provider (ASP).

The accreditation is for both Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) and Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) applications under Australia’s National Telematics Framework.

The two new applications provide flexible and cost-effective ways for transport operators to take advantage of the productivity and road safety benefits made available by road authorities through the National Telematics Framework.

As the peak oversight body for telematics service providers, the national administrator is also responsible for Australia’s National Telematics Framework and ensures new technology furthers the safe operation of commercial vehicle fleets on Australian roads.

Webfleet Australia and New Zealand country manager Jonny Clarke says the certification and alignment to the National Telematics Framework is important for Webfleet.

“Ensuring and improving road safety, for not only our customers, but all road users, is one of the key tenets and focus areas for at Webfleet and Bridgestone Mobility Solutions,” Clarke says.

“We are delighted to achieve TMA accreditation, as it demonstrates our commitment to Australian heavy vehicle operators and is another step forward in ensuring Webfleet continues to provide a world-class fleet management solution for Australian fleets.”

TCA general manager of operations Paddy Goodall congratulated Webfleet on their type approval.

“TCA’s assurance processes include the type-approval of telematics devices and Smart OBM systems, and the certification and audit of application service providers,” Goodall says.

“Our processes provide confidence to all stakeholders who rely on digital technology and data by ensuring the performance-based functional and technical requirements (articulated in TCA’s specifications) are satisfied.”

As a Level 2 certified application service provider, Webfleet now supports transport operators enrolling in the TMA and RIM applications of the National Telematics Framework, as well as in any government schemes that use these applications.
