Jaama has announced “look and feel” functionality additions to its MyVehicle app benefitting both fleet managers and drivers
The latest generation of MyVehicle app delivers both usability enhancements along with improvements, which will benefit both fleet managers and drivers.
Launched last year the app provided company car and commercial vehicle drivers with vital fleet information, which is linked to its Key2 asset management system.
Jaama’s manging director Martin Evans said: “Regulatory compliance is essential for all fleets and that can prove administratively burdensome without robust solutions in place to efficiently and effectively manage vehicles and drivers.
"Tools that enable drivers’ ‘self-service’ are becoming an essential requirement for fleet operators, and save significant back office manual intervention.”
The latest developments include:
- Key2 system administrators being able to disable the ‘Add Vehicle’ option within MyVehicle app resulting in only drivers’ allocated vehicles being displayed.
- Drivers now restricted from adding a vehicle if they do not have the required licence categories to drive it. The permitted licence categories for drivers can be obtained by using Key2’s link to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency for licence checking.
- Key2 system administrators also being able to disable the ‘log accident’ option within MyVehicle app if incidents are managed through a third party supplier.
- An audit of checks with ‘nil’ defects now stored within the Key2 ‘defects’ area.
- Individual vehicle checklist items now able to be configured as mandatory so the driver must set a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response only. Configuring checklist items as mandatory removes the ‘not applicable’ option.
- The ability to flag a defect as being a safety issue, resulting in the vehicle being flagged as ‘off road’ in Key2.
- MyVehicle app retaining a historic record of vehicle defects, the rectification date and other details including the name of the person signing the vehicle back on to the road. That means drivers are in possession of a vehicle’s complete defect history record if stopped by a Driver Vehicle Standards Agency enforcement officer.
- Drivers now being able to take a photo of a ‘critical’ defect and flag an ‘off-road’ status to the commercial vehicle via MyVehicle app That creates an ‘urgent job’ alert in Jaama’s web-based vehicle, driver and workshop management solution Key2.
- A facility that combines ‘non-urgent’ vehicle defects into one job in Key2 thus reducing vehicle downtime. Rule sets within Key2 will link such reported defects together and where applicable tie them to a planned vehicle event, such as a service.
