Press Release for Transport Operator - October 2020

The DVSA continues to promote the importance of the Earned Recognition Scheme and that vehicle operators wanting to join the 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 has been accredited by the DVSA alongside its Tachograph Analysis software.

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 led the development of Asset Maintenance 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.

"Practically too; with COVID-19 restrictions and many office-based staff still working remotely, being able to control and monitor compliance requirements digitally, versus paper, is proving to be an invaluable management and communication tool for many of our customers," added Mark.

Aquarius IT's Asset Maintenance module can be supplied alongside the ClockWatcher Elite subscription package, used solely in conjunction with the company's Driver Walk-Around App, or offered as a separate stand-alone software solution. To arrange a free demonstration, please contact the team
