DCML is providing paperless fleet management with DCM Connected, which can be maintained 100% online through the latest incarnation of its tablet-compatible software.
The software allows full management process to be carried out through tablet devices; with the aim of improving and streamlining the job of managing loan cars, demonstrators or any other fleet vehicles.
When DCML launched DCM Connected in 2016, it combined telematics into traditional fleet management software to provide a tool for vehicle management.
DCML managing director Vince Powell said: “Fundamentally, the standard-setting DCM Connected platform remains familiar. The advantages are that our full analysis is available whether in the office or outside in forecourt or elsewhere, and it can also be used to deliver a 100% paperless management system. There is no doubt that by 2020 many dealers will be a completely paperless environment.”
Using sophisticated telematics software, DCM Connected will monitor and record the driving traits of every asset and operator, measuring behaviour and the most likely areas of maintenance that will require attention.
A traffic light system – with red indicating a poor or reckless driver and green someone who is more careful – to assign every driver with a flag on the DCM system has also been developed, allowing fleet managers to make an informed decision on future loans to that individual or the opportunity to offer driver training to dealership staff.
DCML has also added accident reconstruction capabilities to DCM Connected, meaning that the system will take a snapshot of an accident immediately before, during and after an impact. It will then be able to ascertain to a detailed degree what happened, making costly liability disputes almost obsolete and saving money on insurance premiums.
