X-Ray Battles Driver Infringements with TruTac

X-Ray Battles Driver Infringements with TruTac

A reduction in driver infringements and an increase in analysis management has been seen by the Colchester-based commercial transport consultants X-Ray Transport Management Services Ltd since their customers signed-up for TruTac’s compliance control software. Of X-Ray’s 500-plus clients in the UK, 75 are now using TruTac’s tacho analysis and fleet control systems and more and more customers are coming on board every week.

“We have used other analysis systems, but frankly they fell short of the mark, so in April 2017 we started using TruTac and the difference in ease-of-use and transparent analysis was immediately apparent,” said Managing Director, Ray Baker.

Moreover, TruChecks app enables remote defect reporting for drivers when completing daily walk-round checks and it immediately downloads the information to the system. All records are then available for any subsequent DVSA inspections or audits.

According to X-Ray, the most common reason for operators to be penalised is through ‘Failure to notify’ – whereby operators fail to inform the Traffic Commissioner regarding changes in management, maintenance schedules, convictions etc. The second biggest operator misdemeanour is failing to accurately or regularly report vehicle defects.

“This accounts for around 60%, but with the TruChecks remote defect reporting operators are seeing a significant reduction in this area. We attend and assist operators called to public enquiries on a regular basis and I’m pleased to say we rarely see any operators who are using TruTac’s software in front of a Traffic Commissioner,” added Ray.

Consisting of a group of national field consultants and an in-house department of special advisors, the X-Ray team provides bespoke course to a wide variety of transport operators, including OCR Transport Management, Operators and Transport Managers refresher courses, Drivers CPC in Emergency First Aid at Work, Drivers Hours and Tachographs, Daily Walkaround checks and defect reporting, Fire Awareness/Marshall, COSHH, Risk Assessment and Manual Handling.
