TTC celebrates 25th anniversary with new ‘disruptive’ technology for fleets
Road safety specialist TTC Group is launching a new “disruptive” work-related road risk solution as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Currently being rolled out among the first clients, the new Continuum technology builds on the firm’s recently launched DriverProtect suite of services for fleets to offer a complete online ‘compliance’ platform.
The technology takes the results from the DriverProtect services – which cover fleet risk audits, policy management, driver licence checks, driver risk profiling and grey fleet management – and generates a ‘risk score’ for each driver. It then uses this to provide companies with solutions for customised training for each driver to reduce the number of poor driving events being recorded.
These might include short interactive e-learning or virtual reality modules, videos, hints and tips, alerts, workshops or one-on-one on-road driver training.
The launch of the TTC solution comes as the company celebrates its 25th anniversary. Formed in 1993 by Shropshire husband and wife team Graham and Jenny Wynn, TTC is one of the largest National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS) training providers.
Since a management buyout in July 2017, the business has reported a significant increase in revenues. It’s also invested more than £500,000 in infrastructure, increasing the training panel and developing technology solutions such as Continuum.
This, along with organic growth in its cycling division and a number of potential acquisitions, will see it aggressively grow between now and 2021.
However, although recently appointed CEO Jim Kirkwood – previously MD of AA DriveTech – said that the group is forecasting strong growth across all parts of the business, he added that the biggest untapped opportunity is in supporting SMEs and corporates to better manage all aspects of work-related road safety.
Commenting on the new Continuum platform, Kirwood added: “We have had our first clients sign up and the next 12 months will see this disruptive technology rolled out to many other businesses across the UK.”
