myToyota Connect powered by PLDT Enterprise
The Philippines' largest automotive company Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) and the country’s largest fully integrated telco PLDT recently announced a partnership that will further drive the benefits of smart connected cars and intelligent platforms technology for major fleet business operators and Toyota car owners.
PLDT, through its B2B solutions arm PLDT Enterprise, is firing up TMP’s newest suite of connected services, the myToyota Connect, with smart IoT (Internet of Things) eSIM solutions powered by PLDT wireless unit Smart – the first of its kind solution to be rolled out in the Philippines.
With reliable connectivity from PLDT’s Smart IoT Platform, TMP is able to maximize the potential of a unified connectivity management platform. This platform then allows users to manage connectivity and monitor the usage of a multitude of connected IoT devices backed by the country’s Fastest and Best Mobile Network according to Ookla.
TMP’s myToyota Connect provides Toyota car owners and fleet business operators the ability to have more control over their vehicles for their safety. It promotes the efficient use of Toyota vehicles by monitoring their location, car condition, and driver speed among other features. The myToyota Connect service is now available and ready for activation in the expanding lineup of select variants of Hilux, RAV4, Hiace, and Fortuner models. Activation can be done through TMP’s all-in-one customer mobile platform, the myToyota app.
“With our unified vision and combined efforts, we were able to launch a service that is the first of its kind in the country. It has been some time since Toyota boldly announced its global direction to transform from being an automotive company to a mobility company. Our partnership with PLDT brings us a step closer to this goal – by making CASE or Connected, Automated, Shared, and Electrified mobility a reality to more and more Filipinos,” said TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto.
