New Jaama app for fleets includes auto-triggering
Jaama has launched a smartphone app that not only provides drivers with information but actually offers ‘auto-triggering’ on processes such as service, maintenance and repair procedures.
Available for Android and iOS devices, the ‘My Vehicle App’ uses data uploaded by drivers to automatically update Jaama’s Key2 asset management system, which in turn ‘auto triggers’ processes including daily odometer readings, ‘Daily Checks’ and accident/incident information.
According to managing director Martin Evans, the app saves time and increases efficiency by streamlining operations, which minimises off the road times and reduces costs.
The app can also be used to help drive audit trail accuracy to meet duty of care regulations in respect of who is driving which vehicle, in particular for when multiple vehicles are available to different drivers. Using the Daily Checks function, drivers are presented with a list of inspections that must be performed daily prior to any journey, with a comments section to enter any action required. The information automatically populates the vehicle/asset record within Key2 and triggers in-house rule sets and notifications such as service, maintenance and repair procedures.
The app also provides information to drivers, for example contact numbers for recovery, tyres etc, and accident assistance information, including driver prompts to capture key data. It also houses the employer’s duty of care statement.
Evans added: “It is Jaama’s belief that no other app provides the level of integration with a fleet and asset management software system. As a result, ‘My Vehicle App’ is industry-leading and delivers new levels of efficiency to fleets.”
