Davies Crane Hire utilise Key2
Davies Crane Hire Ltd is expecting to scale new heights of business efficiency with the implementation of Jaama’s industry-leading management software system.
Key2 Hire Management, which will go live across all Davies Crane Hire depots early in 2018, will be used to manage:

•The hiring of mobile, all-terrain and crawler cranes, ranging from eight-ton to 400-ton capacity as well as scheduled and unscheduled maintenance requirements and regulated inspections.
•The company’s transport fleet including pick-up vehicles, lorry loaders, flat-bed and low loaders.
•All financials ranging from credit checks at the point of hire to generating invoices and creating contracts to detailing the unique crane number, start and end date of hire, hire rates, customer details and location of hire.
•Vehicle drivers and crane operators’ licences to ensure maximum compliance.
The one-stop shop, web-enabled Key2 solution replaces two separate IT systems - one used to manage crane hire and related financial reporting and a separate system to manage vehicle drivers and crane operators.

Jaamas new My Vehicle App, fleet management app

Fleet management app

Today’s fleet decision-makers are seeking smart “self-service” solutions focusing on intelligent process driven functionality that reduces the requirement for regular manual intervention from the fleet team.

Just launched is Jaama’s ‘My Vehicle App’, which is a genuine fleet industry game-changer delivering significant benefits to both drivers and fleet managers.

Unlike other apps, ‘My Vehicle App’ provide drivers with more than just ‘flat’ information.
The ‘My Vehicle App’ interactive functionality enables drivers to:
• Update odometer readings
• Undertake daily vehicle checks prior to any journey and flag any defects requiring rectification
• Record essential accident details along with related photographs at the scene

Crucially, information uploaded by drivers via the app automatically populates the associated records held within Key2. The incoming information then automatically triggers in-house rule sets and notifications such as defect rectification action required, accident alerts and service realignments if the vehicles mileage profile has changed.

‘My Vehicle App’ was designed following extensive customer, technological and usability research.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “Auto triggering of processes streamlines operations, saves time, increases efficiency and reduces costs because fleet managers will receive real-time data. ‘My Vehicle App’ also improves audit trail accuracy to help meet duty of care regulations.”

Lauren Haggerty - Project Manager
Business is booming for leading fleet and asset management software company Jaama, which has recruited a further six customer-facing employees.
The recruits include a technical client manager and four technical support advisors who all sit within Jaama’s customer service department and a project consultant who has joined the company’s implementation team.
Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “Year-on-year the business continues to expand as an ever-increasing number of organisations decide to use our multi award-winning Key2 web-based technology.
“The expansion in Jaama’s customer base across all business sectors in which we operate - public and private fleets including those with their own workshops, vehicle leasing and rental companies, and plant, equipment and tool hire - is driving the need to recruit additional staff.”

Jaama Support the DVSA Earned Recognition Pilot Scheme

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency
Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software solution provider, is supporting the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) on its Earned Recognition Scheme pilot and encouraging commercial vehicle, coach and bus operators to take part.
Operators that use Jaama’s multi award-winning Key2 web-based technology to record walk-around vehicle inspection checks, servicing and MoT information will be able to feed that information directly into the DVSA database.
The information recorded by transport managers will demonstrate to the DVSA that fleets are practicing robust and timely compliance methods.
The Earned Recognition Scheme initiative is designed to reduce the number of vehicle roadside checks by DVSA enforcement officers. Roadside checks typically have an impact on business efficiency because they inevitably result in delays and subsequent fines from customers for missing allocated time slots. Additionally, vehicle defects found in checks can result in legal action and trigger a chain reaction nightmare for bosses.
