Magic Internet Technologies, a developer of the Truckfile cloud-based fleet and workshop management and compliance solution, recently added new capabilities to Truckfile.
The new Truckfile is integrated with optional telematics and Sage integration to provide greater control over the compliance process throughout the operational life of every vehicle. The enhancements also help minimize vehicle “off the road” time and enable fleet and workshop operators to achieve significant cost savings.
Telematics help companies monitor driver behavior with a 3-axis accelerometer that tracks the movement of vehicles. Through event detection and recording, fleet operators can evaluate how a vehicle was being driven at the time. Drivers can also identify any infringements such as harsh acceleration, speed violations and excessive engine idling to encourage improved driving habits.
With accounting software SageLine 50, workshop operators can increase administrative productivity. The integration will eliminate the need to rekey information into the accounts system, helping improve accuracy and speed up the production of invoices whilst delivering significant efficiency gains. Truckfile can also be used to carry out a flexible range of driver checks on other vehicles types including oil tankers, buses, vans and JCBs.
The M2M solution provides instant access to maintenance schedules and safety check data and important documentation for every vehicle, which helps improve fleet management efficiency and reduce costs.
Truckfile provides considerably higher levels of functionality and can be quickly and easily deployed for half the cost of traditional compliance-only systems, says Paul Clarke, managing director of Magic Internet Technologies.
Further, workshop management functionality automates job scheduling and ensures compliance throughout the maintenance process. The compliance solution includes a driver walk-around check that uses smartphones or tablet computers to scan QR codes for carrying out predetermined inspections both inside and outside vehicles.
Paul Clarke added, “It provides the highest levels of security for stored compliance data and is the only fleet and workshop management solution to have successfully passed full penetration testing carried out by one of the world’s leading truck manufacturers.”
