Licence Check has officially launched a new driver compliance app for its Driver and Vehicle Information Solution, DAVIS, providing bespoke features including ‘quick check’ licence scanning technology, said to provide the fastest means to check licences.
Previewed last year and now available to download at no extra charge for DAVIS clients, the app helps manage driver and vehicle fleet compliance for both company vehicles and the grey fleet, using their existing user credentials.
This includes the licence scanning technology, believed to be an industry first. Users of the app can scan a photocard driving licence with their smart phone camera, creating a driver record in the primary DAVIS software application.
From the record created, DAVIS then sends a pin code to the driver’s mobile phone, with summary information that the driver must verify to complete the process and permit a check to be instantly carried out against the DVLA database, with the results being fed back in real-time into DAVIS.
The app also provides users with real-time and flexible access to driver and vehicle summary dashboards containing all relevant and up-to-date licence and risk information for each driver and vehicle.
It includes a ‘quick search’ function enabling users to quickly check the risk profile of a driver or vehicle. Keying in ‘high risk’ or ‘disqualified licence’ into the app allows them to see whether the driver or vehicle in question falls into either high-risk category.
The app also features enhanced in-app calling and messaging functionality which removes the need to store driver phone numbers in a mobile phone. Users can simply tap ‘call driver’ and be connected instantly.
Terry Hiles, general manager at Licence Check, now part of the Ebbon-Dacs Group, said: “Positive feedback for our new app was that it offered an innovative and extremely quick way to check drivers’ licences in the field, and for drivers that report to a single location, it offered a much more convenient and instant check.
“The app also enables system users to access key information dashboards remotely and view real-time driver and vehicle risk information without needing to be logged into DAVIS at their desks. We believe this promotes a modern, on-the-move and flexible approach to fleet management.”
