ClockWatcher Measures the Performance of your Assets

ClockWatcher Measures the Performance of your Assets

Friday 19th June 2020

In a recent statement, the DVSA reiterated that vehicle operators wanting to join the Earned Recognition scheme will need IT systems and software that can report on some important performance measures. As a result, Aquarius IT has seen a surge in enquiries for its new Asset Maintenance portal, which was recently accredited by the DVSA alongside its Daily Driver Defect App.

Asset Maintenance is the latest product to be added to ClockWatcher Elite's suite of digital fleet management solutions, and has been designed to provide a full audit trail and complete paperless storage solution for all company assets requiring periodic maintenance or inspection; from company vehicles to workshop equipment.

Uniquely, it also integrates with the software's tacho analysis system and defect App, to provide operators with an all-encompassing automated digital solution for managing both vehicle maintenance / inspection and driver activity.

Mark Johnston, Aquarius IT's Customer Service Director and who has led the development of Asset Maintenance over the last 18 months in consultation with transport operators, said; "Roadworthiness and compliance are fundamental to the Earned Recognition scheme (and indeed any reputable road transport operation), and with ClockWatcher Elite, we have developed a suite of programmes that all integrate to provide operators with an all-encompassing solution for managing and reporting on the driver and vehicle measures required by the DVSA."

"Our Daily Driver Defect App, for example not only reports vehicle data in real time, information from the driver's daily checks can be fed into the Asset Maintenance element of the software. Through this integration, defects and PMIs can be assigned to mechanics with a simple click of a button. Similarly, the accessibility of any tachograph data which is uploaded to our analysis portal allows for a fuller picture when it comes to vehicles being listed as 'Vehicle Off Road'.

This ability to interpret and report on 360° real-time digital data, enables operators to react more quickly, forward plan and monitor costs - and moreover, it gives operators the facility to clearly demonstrate best practise to the authorities if needed and enables those signed up to the Earned Recognition scheme to accurately report on the driver / vehicle performance measures required," confirmed Mark.

'Check your assets, protect your O Licence' webinar with guest speaker Beverley Bell CBE
With Commercial Motor, Aquarius IT will also be hosting a webinar titled 'Check your assets, protect your O Licence' on 22nd July to discuss electronic vs paper when it comes to managing and reporting on all these aspects of road worthiness and compliance.

Beverley Bell CBE, the Director of Beverley Bell Consulting and the former Senior Traffic Commissioner for Great Britain from 2011 to 2017, will also join the webinar discussions as a guest speaker. She will be offering her expert insight on governance and the importance of creating a level playing field in the commercial vehicle industry when it comes to driver / vehicle safety and compliance - using examples, she will explain why it's important for operators to have all the necessary checks and balances in place so as not to give the authorities an 'excuse' to investigate further.
