Jaama updates MyVehicle App

Published:  18 July, 2018

Fleet software provider Jaama has announced updates to its smartphone MyVehicle App.

The enhancements are focused on both usability and appearance which, Jaama says will benefit both fleet managers and drivers.

‘MyVehicle App’ was launched in 2017, providing company car and commercial vehicle drivers with vital fleet information. Information uploaded by drivers automatically updates Jaama’s Key2 asset management system, which in turn triggers processes such as service, maintenance and repair procedures.

Jaama says it invests more than £2 million a year in Key2 and MyVehicle App development to keep them at the cutting edge of fleet management.

The latest developments include:

  • Key2 system administrators being able to disable the Add Vehicle option within MyVehicle App so that only  allocated vehicles are displayed to drivers.
  • Drivers restricted from adding a vehicle if they do not have the required licence categories to drive it. The permitted licence categories are obtained by using Key2’s link to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency for licence checking.
  • Key2 system administrators can disable the log accident option within MyVehicle App if incidents are managed through a third party supplier.
  • An audit of checks with ‘nil defects’ now stored within the Key2 defects area.
  • Individual vehicle checklist items now able to be configured as mandatory so the driver must set a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, removing the ‘not applicable’ option.
  • The ability to flag a defect as being a safety issue, resulting in the vehicle being flagged as ‘off road’ in Key2.
  • MyVehicle App retaining a historic record of vehicle defects, the rectification date and other details including the name of the person signing the vehicle back on to the road, so they have a vehicle’s complete defect history record if stopped by a Driver Vehicle Standards Agency enforcement officer.
  • Drivers can take a photo of a critical defect and flag an off-road status via MyVehicle App. That creates an ‘urgent job’ alert in Jaama’s Key2 system.
  • A facility that combines non-urgent vehicle defects into one job in Key2, so reducing vehicle downtime.

Jaama manging director Martin Evans said: ‘Regulatory compliance is essential for all fleets and that can prove administratively burdensome without robust solutions in place to efficiently and effectively manage vehicles and drivers.

‘Tools that enable drivers’ self-service are becoming an essential requirement for fleet operators, and save significant back office manual intervention.

‘MyVehicle App, via auto-triggering, works in tandem with Key2 so drivers and their fleet or transport managers have all the very latest data at their fingertips to keep businesses at the cutting-edge of operational management.’
