Pertemps has upgraded its day-to-day driver licence checks by adding the Jaama validation portal to its tools.
Jaama’s electronic driver entitlement checking service (eDECS) links with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s (DVLA) database, to validate individual’s driving licences.
Customers of Jaama carry out licence checking using its Key2 fleet and asset management system.
Martin Evans, managing director of Jaama, said: “Our standalone licence checking solution is ideal for an organisation just needing to check driver risk which is perfectly aligned to Pertemps’ agency drivers’ requirements.
“Licence Portal is designed solely for managing driver risks with an easy-to-use format and information displayed on a straightforward dashboard.
“If businesses only require a licence checking/driver solution risk then the new ‘Licence Portal’ is for them.
“Our customers who carry out licence checks along with managing their fleet and assets will continue do this within Key2.”
The licence portal offers a dashboard which runs itself with minimal interaction needed, with the system automatically checking driver licence details at predetermined intervals.
It is also used as a ‘permit to drive’ and as a tool for head office employees to analyse drivers’ overview and driving analytics.
Driver risk levels are labelled as ‘low’, ‘medium’ or high’ according to the points they have on their licences.
Pertemps has more than 110 branches and agencies and will use Jaama’s licence validation on just under 1,000 company cars and ‘grey fleet’ drivers, as well as agency drivers, including HGV Class 1 drivers who work for some of the company’s most established companies.
The fleet software company, now in its 15th year in business, employs more than 120 people – an increase from 100 at the beginning of last year.
