TruTac launches new feature to manage driver compliance risk

TruTac has launched a new software feature, ‘DCRS – Driver Compliance Risk Score’, to simplify how fleet operators monitor and manage the potential risk drivers can pose to compliance levels. Developed after feedback from HGV and PSV operators, it forms part of TruTac’s commitment to the DVSA’s Earned Recognition (ER) scheme, the new Risk Score Calculation is based upon calculating a percentage of infringements per driver duty. The system automatically calculates driver risk scores so that trends and fleet ranking can be viewed via the widgets, dashboards and reports produced by TruTac’s TruControl system.

The new feature highlights each driver’s Risk Score as a Risk Level (very low, low, medium, high, or very high). It also calculates risk trends which, for easy data assimilation are graphically displayed, along with the driver’s overall company ranking. The system auto-adjusts each driver’s score to include the Earned Recognition infringement severity weighting.

“TruTac supports operators in managing driver compliance effectively and easily and we are proud to support the DVSA Earned Recognition scheme,” says commercial and marketing director Jemma James. “This latest product is designed to work in tandem with our existing software so operators can manage drivers and their compliance risk potential easier than ever before.”

“TruTac is one of the few providers who include the DVSA ER dashboards within its products at no extra charge,” adds James.
