Jaama Secures Fleet Interest in Maintenance Exchange

on .

Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software solution provider, has reported a “hugely successful” 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show with significant fleet and transport operator interest in its revolutionary Maintenance Exchange platform.

What’s more, Show visitor interest in Jaama’s core multi award-winning Key2 fleet and asset management system has triggered a near-50% rise on last year in the number of post-event meetings with fleet and transport operators.

The recent NEC, Birmingham, Commercial Vehicle Show provided an opportunity for Jaama to preview Maintenance Exchange, which will be officially launched during Q4 of 2019. The maintenance and compliance platform will revolutionise the way information is exchanged between:

  • Fleet management companies
  • Maintenance providers
  • End-user fleets

The new platform will connect fleet management companies or end-user fleets to maintenance suppliers, whilst significantly reducing the administrative burden of manual processes and is yet another step from Jaama towards paperless asset management.

It is an ‘end to end’ system which will allow seamless booking, authorisation, invoicing and auditing of vehicle maintenance work. The innovative new product connects with Key2 fleet or can interface with other third party systems.

Maintenance Exchange is being launched by Jaama to streamline the exchange of vehicle maintenance information along with related documentation - typically MoT certifications, vehicle inspection sheets, servicing and routine maintenance documents - between maintenance suppliers and fleet management companies/end-user fleets.

Vehicle maintenance work can also be authorised through the platform and built-in rule sets mean that invoices for jobs carried out can be paid in a timely manner once all required documentation is supplied by the maintenance supplier.

Critically, for commercial vehicle end-user fleets, Maintenance Exchange also enables them to collect information for the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency’s (DVSA) Earned Recognition Scheme that monitors fleet compliance data. The incentive for fleets to use the scheme is to reduce the number of vehicle roadside stops and checks by enforcement officers.

Jaama Adds New eSignature Module to Key2

on .

Industry-leading fleet software innovator Jaama has taken another big step towards enabling customers to have a paperless office with the launch of a new eSignature Module to complement its multi award-winning Key2 system.

The eSignature Module enables a document to be sent, signed using an electronic signature, and instantly returned back into the system. It expedites any process that requires documents to be printed, signed and then manually uploaded; new vehicle driver handovers and daily rental agreements being prime examples. Once installed and configured, Key2 eSignature can be utilised anywhere a document is generated within the system.

eSignature is the latest Key2 enhancement to be brought to market from software solutions developed through collaboration with Jaama customers.

Brian Kirby, systems director, JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, a Key2 user since 2011, said: "We have pushed for development of eSignature and believe it is possibly the first application of electronic signatures in the fleet industry.

"We plan to initially roll out eSignature for customers’ master hire agreements and then for quote acceptance and order acceptance documents. Ultimately eSignature will be used for all documents that require a client’s signature. It is the latest initiative as we continue working towards a paperless environment."

He added: "The eSignature rule sets that we have adopted mean that where documents require multiple customer signatures they are automatically emailed to those individuals thereby reducing the administration burden for our clients."

Jaama Celebrates Record-Breaking Year

on .

Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software solution provider, has reported a record year with turnover up 22% from 2017.

Jaama, which is moving into its 15th year, attributes its success to consistent year-on-year investment in Key2 which ensures the system is always at the cutting-edge of fleet and asset management.

Indeed, revenue generated from Jaama’s ever-increasing customer base enables it to continually increase its year-on-year investment programme into Key2.

Jaama customers can manage a wide spectrum of assets with Key2; last year new customers were slightly biased towards commercial vehicle operations with 63% of vehicles added being vans and HGVs. Key2 also benefits organisations operating in asset hire, vehicle hire and leasing, utilities and service industries as well as the public sector markets.

Martin Evans, managing director of Jaama, said: “2018 was a record-breaking year in terms of revenue generation for Jaama and notably the company recorded significant growth in the commercial vehicle management sector.

“Critically Jaama is being rewarded for its investment in Key2 which evolves alongside the requirements of its customers. Many of our new business wins are being secured as fleets ditch outdated systems from suppliers that have failed to invest in their products. Meanwhile, system enhancements - developed with customer assistance - ensure established clients remain loyal.”
