TruTac launches new fleet management system

Coventry , UK: TruTac has a new fleet system for planning and management of truck and bus maintenance and compliance.

The TruFleet system include vehicle history, maintenance records, safety inspections, defect reporting, rectifications and audit checks.

It provides real-time updates on maintenance schedules, online storage for compliance documents, interactive dashboards and alerts. The system will integrate with TruTac’s control products, tachographs, walk around checks and maintenance calendars.

Jemma James, director of commercial operations and marketing, TruTac says:  “TruFleet allows managers to instantly see all planned maintenance events including inspections, MOTs, services, Loler checks and repairs. Bespoke entries can be included for each operator’s requirements and all weekly calendar events viewed in detail on a single screen.

“Tax, insurance and other reminders can be added to the calendar along with tachograph calibration dates which are automatically populated direct from vehicle file downloads.”

TruFleet enables managers to specify maintenance intervals and automatically plan future dates. Inspection sheets can be automatically uploaded and any failures or advisories can be notified using an IM number following routine, daily walk-rounds and driver checks.

Tyre and brake status is recorded along with details of each inspection which includes a brake test. For quick review, full safety inspection history is contained in report form.

TruFleet removes vehicle administration difficulties when using multiple garages. Full schedules and upcoming bookings can be automatically emailed to each garage along with any associated contracts and other relevant documents.

These can include detailed worksheets, current vehicle defects, and any other notes so they can be pre-assessed by the garage. All VORs can be quickly identified along with any vehicles returning to service after garage work is completed. For added control, all upcoming or overdue events are highlighted in a dashboard widget.

Another new feature is managers can easily track numbers of authorised O-licence vehicles and trailers against actual numbers. The dashboard widget indicates operating centres who are nearing or exceeding authorised numbers so action can be taken.
