Jaama anticipates increased business with commercial vehicle, coach and bus operators needing to use a ‘validated IT supplier’ for the DVSA’s newly launched Earned Recognition Scheme.

The Scheme was officially launched at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show following a successful 12-month pilot involving more than 60 commercial vehicle operators from various sectors of the industry - some operators are already users of Jaama’s Key2 web-based technology.

Operators that use Key2 are able to record walk-around vehicle inspection checks, servicing and MoT information which will be directly sent to the DVSA database every four weeks. In return, their vehicles are less likely to be stopped for roadside inspections, saving them time and money.

Meanwhile, the DVSA will allow its officers to target more of their enforcement activities at the high-risk traffic who put other road users in danger.

Martin Evans, managing director of Jaama, said: “To benefit from Earned Recognition, operators must be using an IT system such as Key2 to ensure that they are meeting a set of defined key performance indicators.

“The information recorded in Key2 by transport managers will demonstrate to the DVSA that their fleets are practising robust and timely compliance methods.

“Additionally, transport operators joining the scheme will be able to prove they are a compliant operator, which can help when they bid for contracts, and raise their profile with potential customers.”
