Daish’s Holidays, the UK coach holiday provider, has upgraded to TruTac for their tacho analysis and fleet support software. Since January 2018, the company reported a 50% reduction in driver infringements and an improved compliance control.
Daish’s decided to switch to TruTac as the system it was previously using was too slow and disjointed to operate. TruTac’s suite of software offers the advantage of accurate data reporting with speed and ease to use. Designed and developed in conjunction with the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT), the software is specific for the PSV industry.
“We use CPT Tacho Analysis, CPT Daily Checks and TruLicence,” said Transport Manager, Bryan Maddern. “We have 19 of our 23 coaches hooked up to the system using TruTac’s remote downloading boxes and ‘next-day’ reporting of all key information at our fingertips all the time.”
Since using the system, the driver infringements have been halved and now, all performance-related issues can be immediately addressed using easy to retrieve information.
“The CPT Daily Checks driver app is also a massive improvement,” continued Bryan. “Using the mobile App our drivers can go through routine daily checks and keep us informed right away of any repairs or vehicle issues which need attention. Among other things, they can also view the traffic status which of course is a major help. All the drivers are delighted with it.”
In addition, the TruLicence programme enables the team to immediately check and review all driver and new driver licence history, points and validity.
“We don’t actually have much of a driver turnover in this area but nonetheless, it is a great help and another function of the system which gives us improved compliance control. In short, TruTac has enabled us to get rid of paper, speed things up and maintain tight control. Greater efficiency all-round,” concluded Bryan.
