Truck and Track
One of the biggest challenges faced by transport operators
is keeping track of every element of compliance, from vehicle
maintenance to drivers’ hours and penalty charge notices.
Juggling different systems and databases offers opportunity
for error, but an innovative, cloud-based solution offered by
Tachodisc can bridge the gap.
Vision is an unrivalled one-stop-shop for compliance created by
developers at Tachodisc’s parent company, the Freight Transport
Association (FTA). The software can manage numerous products
and services on a single platform viewed through user-friendly
dashboards. Vision is divided into three areas – driver, fleet and
organisation. It gives a complete overview of your operation and
allows for detailed compliance analysis across all areas.
Vision is constantly under development to ensure that it offers
cutting-edge technology with ease of use. It currently serves the
following FTA audit and training businesses:
Drivers’ hours and tachograph analysis – inspections and audits.
Vehicle inspections and defect sign-off statement.
Visibility of asset inspections done and planned inspections.
Dashboard analysis – results of fleet inspections and defects
Training: tracking Driver CPC – as well as other courses.
Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) tracking.
Driver licence checking.
Reporting across key areas of compliance indashboard, schedule
and self-service reporting.
Remote import of tachograph data.
Generic import of collision and safety inspection data.
Two of the key benefits of Vision are management of FTA’s Vehicle
Inspection Service (VIS) and tachograph analysis software. The VIS
function, exclusively available for those with FTA VIS contracts,
is accessed through a secure online portal and provides a clear
view of vehicle inspection reports. Intuitive, interactive reporting
functionality allows for quick and easy interrogation of reports
from a dashboard overview to the finer detail, enabling reports to
be accessed at the click of a button and making it easier to identify
potential issues with either the maintenance provider or driver
Options also include the benchmarking of company results by
sector and national averages. In addition, trends and performance
can be highlighted in relation to depots, manufacturer, vehicle type,
model or driver, plus much more.
Vision’s tachograph analysis function is suitable for those operating
analogue, digital or mixed fleets. Vision provides a range of reports
from a high-level overview of the company to compliance by depot
and even to the daily detail of individual drivers. Starting with the
company overview on the realtime dashboard, the information can
then be broken down into numerous reports for even greater detail.
There are many key benefits of Vision for tachograph users:
