Jaama to Exhibit at the Emergency Services Show 2019

on .

Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software solution provider, will be highlighting major enhancements to its industry-leading Key2 system at this year’s Emergency Services Show, which will enable fleet operators to make their operations more robust and efficient.

More than 50% of Key2 systems sold by Jaama last year were to public sector fleets, including ‘blue light’ organisations, and that trend is continuing in 2019.

Many ‘blue light’ organisations across the police, fire and rescue and ambulance sectors are continuing to merge their back office functions to reduce costs and take a collaborative approach as they streamline operating efficiencies therefore, Jaama is witnessing a ‘spend to save’ trend across those fleets.

Martin Evans, managing director of Jaama, said: “Sophisticated online fleet management solutions deliver a cost benefit return relatively quickly after implementation. Emergency service organisations now recognise that if they streamline frontline services they must also focus on enhancing back office efficiencies and that includes replacing inefficient outdated systems.

“Consequently, ‘blue light;’ fleets that adopt a ‘spend to save’ philosophy are reaping significantly enhanced benefits by installing a new solution fit for the 21st century rather than attempting to modernise outdated systems.”

‘Blue light’ fleets that already use Key2 include British Transport Police, City of London Police, Devon and Cornwall Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service.

Critically Jaama is being rewarded for the investment of some £2.6 million a year in ensuring that Key2 continues to evolve alongside the requirements of their customers and prospects. Jaama’s unique system upgrade strategy means that Key2 users automatically benefit from system enhancements as they are included in their annual user fee, which is a major benefit as it helps with fleets with budgeting.

Mr Evans said: “Many of our business wins are secured as fleets seek mechanisms to reduce manual intervention as much as possible and ditch outdated systems from suppliers that have failed to invest in their products.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.”

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."
