The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has created a new web-based automated digital and analogue tachograph analysis reporting system which is able to provide detailed compliance data to managers at the touch of a button.
Fleet managers are better able to allocate work and return loads safely using the access that the system gives them to detailed tachograph analysis with information on compliance.
As the process is web-based, managers are able to receive information in real time and without any delay. In addition, the system can email reports to multiple managers across many depots, and directly to drivers of a range of vehicles. For any fleet size this is an ideal system.
The immediate access to tachograph information means that arranging routes, return loads and rest breaks becomes easier and more efficient and provides data for debriefing effectively when an infringement occurs.
What is RHA Analysis?
RHA Analysis is a product which automatically gathers tachograph data directly from vehicles, analyses it and provides in-depth key performance indicator exception-based reporting across an entire fleet.
Based on the data received from each vehicle, managers are able to ensure that safety procedures and good-conduct guidelines are being followed by all drivers across their network.
This system offers complete analogue and digital tacho analysis which will help reduce the number of infringements, and therefore the number of DVSA penalties drivers receive. It complies with Drivers’ Hours Law and the WTD, ensuring adherence to current regulations.
Unlike many tachograph systems, the RHA analysis allows drivers to monitor their own data with easy-to-use driver compliance dashboards.
Key features of RHA Analysis include:
· All data entry carried out by a team of expert analysts.
· A fully automated system that is extremely easy and fast to use
· Manager access to a full KPI dashboard
· A simple to use and easy to navigate user interface, providing instant access to data
· A full support team available round the clock either online, by email or on the phone
· Full security with a range of access levels depending on the users’ position of responsibility
· Guarantees of no hidden costs with free analogue data entry, vehicle downloads, secure data storage and free upgrades and support
Richard Ellithorne, director of operations at the RHA, said: “We firmly believe that this latest service from the RHA will prove invaluable to operators. And because we are so confident of its success, we are also making it available to non-members. There will, of course, be a slight difference in the non-member price but this will more than be made up for in terms of reliability, quality compliance and ultimately, profitability.”
With its raft of information on driver speed, distance and compliance, RHA Analysis provides a revolutionary amount of information for managers to use to ensure that drivers drive safely and carefully. It also provides an extra tool in allocating outbound and return loads while ensuring safe driving is not compromised.
