Jaama at the CV Show
Commercial vehicle fleet operators are seeking to drive greater efficiency and compliance by introducing cutting-edge asset management software systems, according to leading provider Jaama.
 
The company exhibited at the Commercial Vehicle Show for the first time this year and is now busy following up numerous business leads secured at the event, the largest and the most comprehensive road transport and logistics event held in Britain.
 
Numerous commercial vehicle operators continue to manage vehicles, drivers and workshops via either outdated software systems or spreadsheets, according to discussions held with stand visitors.
 
However, operators acknowledge that they must replace such management systems with new sophisticated 21st century software solutions to:
•Improve vehicle operating efficiency and effectiveness by driving down costs and putting a spotlight on boosting uptime
•Maximise compliance with a raft of legislation including driver licence validation and risk profiling, Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) management, vehicle defect reporting following daily walk round driver checks and Operator Licence regulations
•Deliver increased operational control of all aspects of internal workshops including in-depth performance monitoring and control overall all vehicle repair and servicing work. 
 

Jaama streamlines driver licence checking with eConsent

Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software and risk management specialist, has enhanced its driver licence validation service to enable instant verification of information with the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA).
 
Jaama’s eConsent enables customers to request checking approval efficiently via devices such as personal computers or smartphones rather than drivers having to physically complete, sign and return a paper mandate.
 
Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “The new service allows drivers to accept or decline consent for licence checks using a secure website rather than completing a paper mandate. Once drivers have provided consent, it is valid for three years from that date or until consent is revoked or no longer required.
 
“eConsent is a convenient method for employers or vehicle providers to obtain approval from employees and associated drivers to perform checks on their driving licence before allowing them to drive company-provided vehicles.
 

DVSA data underlines critical importance of defect checks

The importance of commercial vehicle fleets undertaking regular defect checks is underlined by statistics from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) suggesting that operators are finding it difficult to keep vans and HGVs in a roadworthy condition.
 
Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet industry asset management software system provider, claims that good computer systems can streamline administration and make the process of ensuring vehicle compliance more robust.   Key2’s Defect Manager Module has been developed to aid commercial vehicle operators in controlling costs as well as ensuring legal compliance.
 
The technology provides an online tick box check list for the completion of a walk-round appraisal of all vehicles.
 
Hopefully, many are likely to record ‘nil’ defects, but any work that is required can be easily recorded and then arrangements made for the vehicle to be booked into a workshop for defect rectification.
 
The system provides companies with a complete online auditable trail of vehicle checks and rectification work undertaken to ensure legal and industry best practice health and safety regulations compliance.
