Jaama exhibit at Fleet Live 2018: Review

on .

Jaama exhibited at this week’s Fleet Live for the fourth time and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

With a record-breaking attendance for the two day show it was the perfect opportunity for Jaama to showcase the latest developments made to its industry-leading, web-based Key2 software, including:

• NEW Earned Recognition Scheme module
• NEW GDPR functionality
• NEW WLTP functionality
• Significant functionality enhancements to mobile application - ‘MyVehicle App’.

At the UK’s leading event for the fleet management community, Jaama proudly sponsored two expert seminars.

Richard Hennessey, Director of Operations DVSA, gave an insightful talk around the benefits of the Earned Recognition Scheme and how the scheme offers a new way for truck, bus and coach operators to prove they meet driver and vehicle standards.

As a validated IT supplier for the DVSA Earned Recognition Scheme, the specialists from Jaama were on hand to offer advice to visitors about the scheme.

On day two Nick Denton Traffic Commissioner, West Midlands discussed how to ensure your fleet stays on the right side of compliance issues in areas such as drivers’ hours and vehicle maintenance.

What could Budget 2018 mean for the fleet industry?

on .

The fleet industry anticipates the 2018 Budget will include an announcement on the future shape of company car benefit-in-kind taxation from April 2020.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond announced that the 2018 Budget will be held later this month (Monday, 29 October.)

It is hoped that the Chancellor will perform a U-turn on the decision to increase to 16% benefit-in-kind tax on cars with emissions of 50g/km or below in 2019/20 and bring forward the already announced reduced rates, including:

• The 2% threshold for 100% electric models
• and those with an electric mileage range of up to 130 miles, to April next year from 2020/21.

The Chancellor said he had brought the Budget date forward to avoid the set-piece economic statement clashing with the latter stages of the ongoing Brexit negotiations.

The earlier than expected Budget breaks with the tradition as it is being held on a Monday and in October - rather than on the more traditional Tuesday or Wednesday in November or early December.

Jaama to sponsor Earned Recognition seminars at Fleet Live

on .

It’s just two weeks to go until Jaama is exhibiting at Fleet Live, NEC Birmingham, October 9 – 10 on stand B56. 

As a validated IT supplier for the DVSA Earned Recognition Scheme, Jaama is proudly sponsoring two expert seminars at Fleet Live on ‘Understanding the benefits of Earned Recognition’. The specialists from Jaama will be on hand to offer advice and answer any questions you may have. 

Jaama has recently launched the Earned Recognition Scheme module enabling commercial vehicle operators to create, store and manage compliance data as well as send defined Earned Recognition Scheme key performance indicator information to the DVSA database every four-weeks – including data captured from walk-around vehicle inspection checks, servicing and MoTs. 

In return for adopting the Earned Recognition Scheme, operators are less likely to be stopped for roadside inspections which will save them time and money.
