TruTac launches new driver app

TruTac app

TruTac has launched a new driver app, to replace its existing TruChecks service.

It is now called the TruTac app, to reflect its complete overhaul and increasing capabilities.

In addition to the core vehicle walkaround checking function, the new app now includes much closer integration with the company’s other software products.

Operators and drivers using TruTac’s multitude of systems, such as TruAnalysis, TruTime, and TruDocuments Premium can now access all such systems directly though the app. The app can seamlessly send data from walkaround checks straight through to the TruFleet system for ease of fleet maintenance planning and to minimise vehicle downtime.

It also features a fresh user interface, including clearer notifications, a dedicated accident reporting system, an updated traffic reports page, and a new light and dark mode. 

TruTac managing director Jemma James said: “It’s fully configurable and scalable according to the modules the company has live. A decade ago, it was really just about doing walkaround checks. That’s grown hugely to enable access to the document library, uploading documents, requesting holidays and a whole host of other integrated features.

“Because of the changes in technology on both the Apple and Android platforms, rather than tweak the app, we wanted to make a completely new one. It now has additional security features, greater configuration and more functionality.”

Plugging into TruTac’s software systems allows drivers to do more with the app than a simple vehicle inspection. One of the main perks, according to James, is the ability to see their tachograph information and sign of debriefs via the app.

She added: “Most of our customers use us for tachograph analysis as the keystone product, so a lot of drivers will use the app to check things like whether they’ve had any infringements, how long they’ve driven for, whether they’re due a break – those kinds of driving hours-related compliance issues.”
