Transtech launches NHVAS applications

Intelligent Access Program (IAP) provider Transtech has unveiled a set of applications to help manage National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) requirements.

Called Mass Manager for NHVAS, the applications operate on its iFace Gen2 in-vehicle touch screen computer through its NextGen Portal.

Transtech Chief Operating Officer Andrew Rossington states that the solution “aims at reducing the administration overhead that transport operators have in undertaking their compliance responsibilities.

“Mass Manager is designed specifically for ease of use in the cab, therefore ensuring a simple transition for drivers away from paper-based systems.

“Our feedback from clients has been unanimous in the need to automate paper-based tasks, both in-cab and in the back office – Mass Manager compliments Sentinel, our market leading fatigue application along with sister applications such as Pre-Trip checklists.

“The continued success of the iFace Gen2 in-cab computer provides a single point within the cab to manage compliance and work based activities. Mass Manager for NHVAS is another example of apps available for the iFace.”

Transtech says it gives drivers the ability to record axle group mass and vehicle configuration directly on the iFace.

The information is available immediately in the office for printing or ready for exporting via Excel for NHVAS auditors.

Meanwhile, a sister application, the electronic Pre-Trip Checklist for NHVAS, is aimed at ensuring drivers declare readiness for duty and comply with Chain of Responsibility obligations, the privately owned local company says.

The transport operator is able to specify a driver and vehicle checklist.

Upon starting duty, the driver will complete the pre-defined checklist, the information is then available to back office staff once the driver has submitted the checklist.
