TruTac wins Queen’s Award
PSV software solutions specialist, TruTac, has won a Queen’s Award for its contribution towards safety and drivers’ hours management.
TruTac worked closely with the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) and PSV operators to design a range of cloud-based software tools for accurate recording of vehicle and driver activities. These developments are designed to replace unreliable manual procedures and enable operators to comply with the specific safety and legal requirements of the coach and bus sector.
TruTac’s Commercial Operations and Marketing Director, Jemma James, said: “Many of our coach and bus operator customers were relying on manual procedures to capture and record vehicle and driver activities and not surprisingly, this was time-consuming and led to errors and difficulties in analysis, not least in presenting data for DVSA-related checks and auditing.”
In order to overcome these and other issues, TruTac’s software designers wrote an entirely different set of rules with unique algorithms, based on the PSV rule-set and the bespoke operational requirements of coach and bus operations within the UK and Europe. A resulting driver education software tool, TruDriver enables drivers to view and access their own data records, thereby helping to improve performance and reduce fatigue-related errors and infringements. Moreover, using TruDriver, operators can improve auditing processes for driver debriefing and data management to comply with DVSA and Traffic Commissioner regulations.
TruTac’s Managing Director, Terry Ramsey, said: “I cannot stress enough, the pleasure I felt when I learned that TruTac was being honoured with this prestigious award. As Managing Director, I know the amount of work, dedication and commitment that TruTac staff have put in over the years and this award recognises all of that. Accordingly, I want to thank all staff past and present who have played a part in TruTac’s fantastic success. Just as importantly, I would like to thank all our customers who have worked with us to make TruTac what it is today – the true leader in PSV and HGV compliance control software.”
