Tacho Analysis proves big success for CPT members

CPT says its Tacho Analysis has proved a success with operators in its first year of operation. Developed in partnership with TruTac, the scheme is available to CPT operating members.

At a recent annual review meeting, Simon Posner, chief executive and Peter Gomersall, deputy chief executive of the CPT, met with Terry Ramsey, MD and Jemma James, commercial director of TruTac.

The commercial partnership was regarded as a success for all concerned, as a high percentage of CPT members have signed up to the service in the first year. The CPT team are now looking at other TruTac compliance products which may compliment CPT Tacho Analysis, which may include mobile app-based products for drivers’ daily walk-around checks and driver time and attendance, to assist in capturing Working Time Directive data.

“We are delighted with the positive start CPT Tacho Analysis has had and we look forward to working with TruTac in the future for the benefit of our members,” says Gomersall. “Johnson’s Coaches was the first operator to join CPT Tacho Analysis and since they were signed up last year, a significant number of CPT bus and coach operator members have followed suit. We look forward to introducing this exclusive offer to even more CPT members in 2016/17.”

The CPT Tacho Analysis software package includes web-based digital and analogue tachograph analysis, supporting EU and GB Domestic Drivers’ Hours Rules specifically for PCV drivers (including Working Time Directive regulations).

The cloud-based system includes management dashboards with features such as comparisons with the UK average infringement levels and traffic alerts. The system’s driver debriefing module can be linked to the company’s HR policy in respect of training and disciplinary issues. Drivers can also log on to their own area of the system which will show their duties, daily rest status, earliest next duty start and other compliance data.
