New integrated compliance management solutions at CV Show 15

Posted by AndrewT on 27th Mar 2015

Descartes will be showcasing its latest comprehensive Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to help road transport operators achieve compliance at this year’s Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show taking place on the 14th to 16th April 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham. Changing regulations and targeted enforcement activities are making maintaining compliance more important than ever. Visitors to stand 4J81 will learn how to remain compliant with the latest UK and EU laws. In addition, as of 8 June 2015 the DVLA will no longer issue a paper counterpart with new or replacement driving licenses. For organisations with a number of drivers this creates a management and administrative burden where it will be easy to miss essential licence checks. Descartes is able to provide road transport operators with a simple and automated solution with Descartes SmartLicence™, a comprehensive online tool for managing driving licences and verifying the licence details with the DVLA. Descartes SmartLicence is part of Descartes SmartCompliance™, a SaaS-based compliance management solution offering which also includes Descartes SmartAnalysis tachograph analysis and Descartes SmartCheck electronic vehicle check app to ensure operators remain legal, and on the road. The service now features Descartes SmartAlerts, providing transport managers with automatic email alerts to tachograph, drivers’ hours and driving licence issues, eliminating the need for manual checks. This not only saves time, but also enables subscribers to the service to take immediate action on issues that could impact their compliance and Operator’s Licence. “Descartes’ solutions for road transport operators help ensure compliance with the latest regulations that apply in the UK and EU,” said Pól Sweeney, Vice President Sales at Descartes Systems UK. “Whether you have a fleet of one vehicle or thousands, Descartes’ SmartCompliance supports compliance with the latest regulations and maximises operational effectiveness, all through a single supplier.” Descartes SmartCompliance is part of Descartes Routing, Mobile and Telematics solution portfolio. These solutions help fleet operators improve operational efficiency and customer service whilst maintaining compliance through advanced route optimisation, intelligent despatching, GPS-enabled tracking, industry specific mobile applications and compliance management SaaS.
