Codegate has developed an incident reporting tool, which aims to reduce the time fleet managers have to spend on administration.
“Our new incident reporting tool allows drivers to quickly, easily and accurately record any kind of road incident from an accident to an inspection from the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency,” explained Terran Churcher, Codegate’s chairman.
“The form orientated software, running on a hand held computer, prompts the driver to enter all the required data surrounding the incident.”
During discussions with its client and an insurance company, Codegate discovered that organisations operating fleets of vehicles face two common problems surrounding incident reporting.
“Firstly, drivers often take considerable time before reporting an incident, unless it is an accident which results in the vehicle being unable to be driven,” continued Churcher.
“The quicker, accurate and detailed reporting of an incident/accident is submitted to your insurance company, the quicker the facts can be established and the claim settled, reducing administration costs for both your organisation and the insurance company. This reduced administration can result in savings being passed on by way of lower premiums.”
Codegate’s incident reporting tool is a mobile application which can be integrated with Codegate’s mobileworker software, enabling organisations to monitor, measure and manage people on the move, or it can be deployed as a stand-alone solution.
