Smartphone apps are good for driver – and vehicle – wellbeing

With so many of the nation’s company drivers being remote from their businesses during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, it has meant that many fleets have had to adapt and change in order
to maintain controlled, yet remote, visibility of their vehicles and drivers.

Many fleets have been used to passing paperwork between the driver and the fleet office, but that simply wasn’t possible during the recent pandemic.

At Jaama, there is a vision of the paperless office and recent functionality including Signable – electronic document signing has been described as ‘impressive’ and ‘ahead of other solutions’ by forward-thinking businesses such as Octopus EV.

Smartphone apps have also come into their own and have been vital for many fleets to remain compliant during the pandemic. They have been at the heart of helping fleets remain in contact with their drivers. The driver can carry out their daily vehicle inspections, take photos of any defect, record mileage and even report accidents using a smartphone app. All instantaneously without generating a heap of paperwork.

The communication works both ways as fleet teams can push out vital health and safety or vehicle information direct to the driver’s smartphone or tablet such as contact details for accidents and breakdowns.

Overall, an app is great for providing operational information to the driver and collecting vehicle information, which is important in helping to improve safety and compliance levels.

A very app-ealing proposition!
