Jaama will be showcasing new functionality introduced to its web-based vehicle, driver and workshop management solution Key2 at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show.
Jaama exhibited at the show for the first time last year and such was the interest from fleet decision-makers, transport operators, senior managers and engineers in its industry-leading Key2 technology that it is returning in 2017.
This year’s Commercial Vehicle Show is once again being held at the NEC in Birmingham, from April 25-27.
UK organisations collectively managing more than 800,000 vehicles, company car and commercial vehicle drivers and own-vehicle drivers and their own workshops currently use Key2 and that number is expected to grow significantly further in 2017.
Jaama, an Associate member of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and a partner to the Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence scheme, is firmly focused on helping fleets achieve compliance best practice through implementation of Key2.
With both standards becoming ever-more crucial in the battle to win business and show compliance requirements are being met, alongside employers being a member of the Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) community to revolutionise the management of work-related road risk, Key2 is being used by organisations to meet legislative standards.
Jaama invests more than £2 million per year on software development that keeps Key2 at the cutting edge of management solutions and that has continued with the introduction of vehicle inspection sheets within the Workshop touchscreen module.
The touchscreen application allows technicians to view their work allocation and record their time against each vehicle work item.
In addition, a technician is able to complete a vehicle service/inspection checklist sheet, which is fully configurable/customisable. Each check on the list has three options - completed, requires attention or not applicable - and if a technician’s work on a vehicle service/inspection is interrupted the technology will return to the appropriate page on resumption. On completion, checklist sheets are stored against the Key2 Workshop job sheet.
Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “Many commercial vehicle fleets have invested in our Key2 technology to improve operating efficiencies and compliance as they realise current practices are no longer suitable due to ever changing business and legislative demands.
“Whether historically using a spreadsheet system or outdated software, many organisations have recognised that if they ‘spend to save’ they will reap significant cost savings and administration efficiencies and meet their compliance obligations.
“Jaama’s continual investment in introducing new features to Key2 - many introduced at the request of commercial vehicle operators - means the technology is at the cutting-edge enabling managers to drive down costs and increase vehicle operation efficiency.”
Organisation’s using Jaama’s Key2 system in the UK and overseas include: British Transport Police, BCA, Days Fleet, DHL Express, DHL International, Hertfordshire County Council, Interserve, JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, Merrion Fleet Management, MITIE, Ogilvie Fleet, Prohire, Sheffield Insulation Group, Serco, Seven Asset Management, Skanska and Speedy.
