TomTom and MapIT expand their footprint in Africa

By MapIT

MapIT and TomTom are extending their multiyear agreement and the geographic expansion of their partnership to cover the entire African continent. MapIT will continue to operate as TomTom’s preferred African distribution partner.

TomTom has also included MapIT in its Map Editing Partnership (MEP) Programme, making MapIT the first non-global partner to edit maps on behalf of its clients. The MEP programme uses strategic collaboration to update maps for users as quickly and accurately as possible, a mission in line with MapIT’s ethos of intelligent mapping solutions. The company’s involvement will advance the efforts and quality of data across Africa.

The South African-based firm recently launched its SpeedFOX product, a speed assistance solution. As an autonomous, multi-point speed governor, SpeedFOX is positioned as a globally relevant innovation for improving road safety, reducing carbon emissions and saving lives.
