Tell us more about Jaama...
Jaama provides fleet managers with the tools they need to effectively and efficiently manage their drivers and vehicles while providing transparency to help enable informed strategic decisions to be made.
Our innovative Key2 fleet software enables the strategic analysis of fleets with the objectives of identifying opportunities to increase efficiency, reduce operating costs while, most importantly, mitigating risk.
It actively manages, monitors and analyses data which can then be served up via tailored reports ensuring that key performance indicators are delivered to the right people precisely when they’re needed.
Founded in 2004, we now work with an eclectic range of customers across both the public and private sectors.
How has Jaama's culture ensured success during the pandemic?
We’re a privately-owned company and develop all our software in-house and I believe our customers like the fact that they are dealing with a company that’s big enough to be sustainable, but small enough for them to be able to speak to the owners.
Personally, I continue to be directly involved in all aspects within Jaama on a daily basis and I make sure that customers have my contact details should they ever need to contact me in person.
In addition, we recognise that everyone who works for us has an absolutely essential part to play for the success of our business– and we’ve always done our best to ensure they know they’re valued.
As a result, the entire team has remained focused and committed throughout the pandemic.
How have you worked with your clients during the pandemic?
A lot of our customers see us as a highly proactive and responsive extension of their organisation – and this approach has stood us in excellent stead during the Covid-19 crisis.
Our Key2 software is designed to make our customers’ lives easier by ensuring they have the information they need which is easily accessible.
Some of our customers have found themselves operating with a reduced headcount over the past year and our software has enabled them to adapt.
Similarly, our customer experience managers have worked closely alongside those clients who’ve seen demand for their products or services increase dramatically to ensure that they are getting the best from their software and the best out of their fleet.
How does Jaama intend to stay at the forefront of fleet management software post-pandemic?
We have a 40-strong development team who are constantly innovating to provide solutions for our customers ever-changing challenges.
Our Key2 product platform is modulised and fully scalable, which means that our customers can increase the size of their system and acquire new modules as their business evolves.
We continually invest in our products to address market changes and these improvements are available to all Key2 customers within our bi-annual service packs meaning that we don’t leave any of our customers behind with outdated legacy systems.
Separately, we’ve recently launched our ‘Maintenance Exchange’ platform which allows the seamless booking, authorisation, invoicing and auditing of vehicle maintenance work. All required documentation, typically MOT certifications, vehicle inspection sheets, servicing and routine maintenance documents can be shared between maintenance providers, vehicle operators and the DVSA.
At Jaama, we’re resolutely committed to ensure our customers have the best tools for their job and that they get the maximum return on their investment. And we intend to keep on achieving this by ensuring that they’re consistently utilising the most appropriate and up-to-date software for their business requirements.
