Davis updates to offer enhanced compliance, says Licence Check

Licence Check is introducing upgrades for its cloud-based Driver and Vehicle Information Solution (Davis) brand to help further automate driver and vehicle compliance management and address duty of care.

The new releases, which have been timed to coincide with the opening of the Commercial Vehicle Show on 30 April, include accident recording, enhanced licence checking and improved security, and follow last October’s launch of Fleet File functionality, which provides users with a database for managing their fleet vehicles and storing all relevant vehicle information and business-critical documents.

Now, from next month, a new accident recording feature will allow Fleet File users to document accidents against a specific vehicle and a named driver to provide greater insight into the most at-risk drivers as part of an ongoing risk management process. The new function records date, time and location of the accident and provides enhanced dashboard reporting to include recent accidents and accident severity. It also issues reminders for open accidents and outstanding issues, as well as providing an upload facility for images of vehicle damage. And it carries insurance claim details and has the ability to assign accidents to a named driver.

At the same time, the Driver Risk Score feature within Davis has been reconfigured to calculate the associated risk of a particular accident so that a driver’s individual risk score is automatically updated.

In terms of enhanced licence checking, company car drivers now have the ability within a nominated driver function within Davis to add their spouses or partners to the licence checking system rather than relying on system administrators, using a reduced number of steps. This cuts down on workload and makes the process of adding familial drivers much simpler and more efficient.

At the same time, security within Davis has been further enhanced, thanks to a new two-factor authentication system that requires a secondary security process after logging on.

Richard Brown, director of sales at Licence Check, said: “It has been particularly rewarding to work on these important new releases for DAVIS, as we know from client research that they will have a positive impact on improving efficiency and transparency when managing driver and vehicle compliance. We look forward to providing more details to visitors at the Commercial Vehicle Show.”
