Descartes Systems Group has launched a new integrated driving licence management and verification service in the UK.
Descartes SmartLicence is a comprehensive online tool for managing driving licenses and verifying licence details with the UK Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
The solution provides historical logs that enable companies to demonstrate to regulatory authorities that the correct systems and processes are in place to ensure employees are entitled to drive on company business.
Built using Microsoft web and .NET technologies and running on SQL Server, Descartes SmartLicence assesses the risk of licensed drivers based on endorsement codes and penalty points. Users are able to regularly conduct licence checks to assess risk levels. These risk levels, as well audit periods and a range of advanced alerts, are configurable to fit business requirements of companies.
“All UK employers need to ensure that their drivers hold a valid driving licence,” said Mike Ryder, managing director at TMS Analysis. “We work with some of the largest fleets in the UK, and are happy to be able to make the Descartes SmartLicence service available to our clients for effective management of driving licences and fast licence verification with the DVLA.”
“Every transport operator needs systems and procedures in place to help them meet their legal responsibilities. Failure to do so can result in severe fines and penalties,” said Steve Fisher, managing director at Descartes Systems Group UK. “We’re pleased to provide a solution that assists busy transport managers in managing compliance with tachograph regulations, drivers’ hours, working time directive and, now, verifying driving licences on one integrated platform.”
