Jaama launches new Earned Recognition Scheme fleet module

on .

Jaama has launched a new DVSA Earned Recognition Scheme module that enables commercial vehicle operators to create, store and manage compliance data.

  • The new module is also applicable to coach and bus operators
  • It has been launched following Jaama being recognised by the DVSA as a ‘validated IT supplier’ for its Key2 web-based technology.
  • Operators that use Key2 are able to send defined Earned Recognition Scheme key performance indicator information to the DVSA database every four-weeks
  • This includes data captured from walk-around vehicle inspection checks, servicing and MoT’s.

Operators adopting the Earned Recognition Scheme are less likely to get stopped for roadside inspections which will save them time and money.

Roadside checks have an impact on business efficiency because they inevitably result in delays and subsequent fines for operators missing allocated time slots with their customers. Additionally, vehicle defects found in checks can potentially result in legal action and trigger a chain reaction nightmare of a deep dive fleet audit by the DVSA.

New WLTP functionality added to Key2

on .

Jaama has introduced new functionality to Key2 that enables users to utilise the data available following introduction of the new vehicle emissions and MPG protocol, WLTP.

Claimed to be more representative of 'real-world' driving than the outdated NEDC vehicle testing procedure, WLTP has been billed as “the world’s toughest-ever emissions standard”.

  • WLTP test results have been applied to all new car and lighter van models (Class I up to 1305kgs) since September last year.
  • From September 1, 2018 all cars and lighter vans (Class I up to 1305kgs) must be tested under WLTP rules along with new types of heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kgs and III above 1760kgs).
  • From September 1, 2019 the rules apply to all heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kgs and III above 1760kgs).

Introduction of WLTP is much more comprehensive compared with the ‘old’ NEDC test.

As a result, Jaama which takes vehicle data feeds from automotive industry providers CAP HPI and JATO Dynamics, has added new functionality to their Key2 suite of applications to manage this data. The new functionality will enable a greater insight into vehicle emissions and MPG performance for fleet decision-makers.

Functionality enhancements take 'MyVehicle App to next level

on .

Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet industry asset management software system provider, has announced a host of functionality additions to its innovative smartphone ‘MyVehicle App’.
 
The latest generation of ‘MyVehicle App’ delivers both usability enhancements along with “look and feel” improvements, which will benefit both fleet managers and drivers.
 
‘MyVehicle App’ was launched last year providing company car and commercial vehicle drivers with vital fleet information. Critically, information uploaded by drivers via the app automatically updates Jaama’s multi award-winning Key2 asset management system, which in turn ‘auto triggers’ processes such as service, maintenance and repair procedures.
 
Jaama has a continuous programme of investment in product development that amounts to more than £2 million per year ensuring that solutions - Key2 and ‘MyVehicle App’ - remain at the cutting edge of fleet management.
 
‘MyVehicle App’ has already been very popular with customers, but the product continues to evolve as would be expected from Jaama and the latest developments include: 
 

Jaama to showcase 'MyVehicle App' at Hillhead Show

on .

Jaama continues to drive into the plant, equipment and tool hire sector with its newly enhanced ‘MyVehicle App’ and Key2 Hire Management software system and will be exhibiting at ‘Hillhead 2018’.

The show at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton June 26-28 is for exhibitors and visitors alike to do business amongst live working demonstrations and static displays. 

Jaama’s will be showcasing its genuine industry game-changer ‘MyVehicle App’ at the event which:

  • Works in tandem with Key2 so managers have all the very latest data at their fingertips to keep businesses at the cutting-edge of operational management.
  • Now features the ability of drivers/operators to both report any defects or ‘nil defects’ during their daily on site walk-around checks.
  • The compliance functionality provides an audit trail of all plant and equipment checks irrespective of whether any defect was spotted and is stored in the Key2 ‘defects’ area.
  • Has the ability to flag a defect as being a ‘critical’ safety issue, resulting in the machinery being marked as ‘off-site’ in Key2.
  • Allows operators to take a photo of a ‘critical’ defect and attach ‘off-site’ status to the item of plant, which in turn will create an ‘urgent job’ alert in Key2.
