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

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.

Business booms for Jaama with further expansion

Business is booming for Jaama, the provider of the UK’s most sophisticated and requested vehicle and driver management software system, which is moving into its 14th year.
More than 1.2 million vehicles are now managed by Jaama’s multi award-winning Key2 asset management system. Jaama attributes its success to:

•Leadership consistency and business stability - chief executive Jason Francis, managing director Martin Evans and IT director James Thresher have been driving the company since its launch and fellow directors Stuart Mills (development director) and Michelle Morgan (operations director) have been employed for more than 10 years each. Furthermore, Jaama enjoys a very low staff turnover with many of its team having received long terms service awards.

•A track record of continuous investment in product development that amounts to more than £2 million per year ensuring that solutions - Key2 and more recently ‘MyVehicle App’ - are at the cutting edge of fleet and asset management.

•Continuous investment in its employees - now numbering well over 100 - with each staff member having a structured development programme that includes completing fleet, IT and personal development training.
Last year Jaama sold a record number of its industry-leading Key2 vehicle management systems to fleets, contract hire and leasing companies and rental specialists and Mr Evans said: “Key2 has been proven to be a fantastic product and is recognised as the number one choice for the industry.

Jaama expects business wins following new DVSA scheme

on .

Jaama anticipates increased business with commercial vehicle, coach and bus operators needing to use a ‘validated IT supplier’ for the DVSA’s newly launched Earned Recognition Scheme.

The Scheme was officially launched at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show following a successful 12-month pilot involving more than 60 commercial vehicle operators from various sectors of the industry - some operators are already users of Jaama’s Key2 web-based technology.

Operators that use Key2 are able to record walk-around vehicle inspection checks, servicing and MoT information which will be directly sent to the DVSA database every four weeks. In return, their vehicles are less likely to be stopped for roadside inspections, saving them time and money.

Meanwhile, the DVSA will allow its officers to target more of their enforcement activities at the high-risk traffic who put other road users in danger.
