Tachodisc In The News
Get on board the TachoTrain at 2012 CV Show
CV Show 2012 - Stand No. 3E30
The 2012 CV Show will see Tachodisc launch Tachotrain, a revolutionary new training management system which will enable companies’ to test and periodically assess drivers knowledge on key legislation subjects. It can also automatically track, manage and report on all staff training requirements by employee, job type, depot, location and reporting line for Driver CPC as well as wider HSE requirements.
Created by Tachodisc, Tachotrain serves to modernise the way assessment training can be delivered in the road transport industry. The virtual training area contains a series of online multiple choice tests, which have been devised by Tachodisc’s legislative training experts; subjects include Drivers’ Hours Law, Road Transport Directive and Road Worthiness. These provide companies with the unique ability to periodically test and assess drivers’ knowledge on key legislative subjects.
Karen Crispe, Tachodisc’s Managing Director says: “With VOSA stating that Drivers’ Hours abuse is still the most common reason for prosecutions, continuously testing drivers’ knowledge and assessing their training needs is imperative – and not only in terms of reducing fines, protecting OCRS scores, but in making sure your drivers are safe on the road.”
“Tachotrain gives companies the flexibility to schedule testing around work schedules from any location – a PC and internet connection is all that is required. The tests are also a great tool for hiring managers, allowing candidates knowledge to be quickly assessed during the recruitment process,” said Karen.
Significantly, Tachotrain has also been designed to securely hold a complete record of staff qualifications and ongoing training requirements. The system automatically tracks, identifies and notifies line managers of re-validations and training needs by employee, job type, depot, location and reporting line. “This is a valuable management tool, especially for managing Driver CPC,” added Karen. “The system tracks and reports on how many CPC hours each driver has done and when, and visibly flags up what needs to be achieved to meet the deadline,” added Karen.
Tachotrain’s detailed reporting functions also allows companies to plan, track trends and identify areas of improvement, thus enabling Driver CPC and general training budgets to be deployed more cost-effectively.
At CV Show 2012, Tachodisc will also be showcasing the innovative new DigiDL remote downloading system after becoming the first company to successfully implement the technology commercially in a live environment last year with Woodland Logistics.
The DigiDL, which sets a new standard for remote tachograph download technology, is being offered by Tachodisc as one all-encompassing package, from point of order through to fitment and management of data. “This simple process provides customers with all the benefits of remote downloading with relatively little financial investment or IT infrastructure required,” said Karen.
Tachodisc’s legal and IT experts will be on hand at the show to demonstrate the company’s new legislative technology solutions, and will be providing advice and information on the company’s full range of compliance services; from analysis software solutions, digital and analogue products, fleet management services and Operator and Driver CPC training.
