From this month, DAVIS by Licence Check has additional functionality within its Fleet File module that includes a new accident recording feature.
The new feature is said to allow users to document accidents against a specific fleet vehicle and a named driver, providing greater insight into the most at-risk drivers as part of an ongoing risk management process.
The new accident management function will be unveiled at the Commercial Vehicle Show later this month, and records date, time and location of the accident as well as providing enhanced dashboard reporting to include recent accidents and accident severity.
It also issues reminders for open accidents and outstanding issues, as well as providing an upload facility for images of vehicle damage. The feature additionally carries insurance claim details and has the ability to assign accidents to a named driver.
At the same time, the function has been reconfigured to calculate the associated risk of a particular accident so that a driver’s individual risk score is automatically updated.
“By recording accidents and assigning them to individual drivers in our new accident management functionality, companies’ view of driver risk is further enhanced, providing greater insight into those drivers at most risk.” added Richard Brown, director of sales at Licence Check, now part of online solutions provider, Ebbon-Dacs.
The feature is said to enhance risk management particularly in light of recent figures surrounding the number of foreign drivers that have passed their driving test abroad, but who via a reciprocal deal run by the government have been able to convert to a UK driving licence without having to pass a UK-specific test.
