Fleets recognise potential of FORS FMS software
New software that can help Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) members achieve and maintain the accreditation is seeing rapid take-up by fleets.
In total, 50 fleets have signed up to trial the new software developed by software specialist and FORS Affinity Partner FleetCheck.
The FORS Fleet Management System (FMS) includes an online checklist which allows FORS members quick and easy access to the specific fleet data required for Bronze, Silver and Gold accreditation, a comprehensive data platform providing online document storage, an information portal and a reporting suite.
The software uses a traffic-light system to alert users to calendar events such as MOTs, service intervals, driver training and licence checking. Operator licence criteria is also managed, with FORS FMS providing a wide range of additional tools.
There is also an accompanying, fully integrated FORS FMS Mobile app for phones and mobile devices, making it easy for drivers to carry out routine vehicles inspections, including the capability to report defects and to expedite maintenance requirements.
Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “Having 50 organisations using the software already is a very rapid adoption rate for a product of this kind. We are working with those who are adopting FORS FMS and will be helping them to get the best results.”
