FORS Launches Fleet Tools System for Members

FORS has created a range of toolkits to help vehicle managers collate the specific fleet management data needed to fulfil the requirements at each level of the organisation’s progressive accreditation.

The free for FORS members’ online information system is also designed to identify areas for improvement across their fleet and monitor their progress through the FORS Bronze, Silver and Gold accreditation levels as they strive towards even greater efficiency, environmental and cost-saving goals.

Jaama is an Associate member of FORS and many users of its Key2 driver and vehicle management system users are accredited to the standard.

Toolkits contained within FORS Fleet Tools include:

- A fuel tracker to record and monitor fuel usage, miles per gallon, carbon dioxide (CO2) levels and efficiency improvements. Monitoring fuel use is required at all levels of FORS accreditation, and members are able to access the toolkit relevant to FORS Bronze, Silver or Gold requirements

- A penalty charge notice tracker to monitor and manage potential incidents and help members reduce the number of penalties received

- An incident tracker to record, track and monitor incidents involving drivers or vehicles, including service and roadworthiness and road traffic collisions

- The ability to upload, store and submit FORS Silver and Gold evidence.

Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager, said: “Improving safety, boosting efficiency and safeguarding the environment are the guiding principles of FORS. In order for our members to raise standards and improve efficiencies, they must measure and monitor their whole fleet.”
