In terms of logistics and legal requirements under EU regulations, companies and self-employed drivers alike have the same concern: ensuring that their tachograph will be not only reliable and highly accurate in terms of recording driving and rest hours, but are also paired with equipment capable of downloading this data in the most efficient way possible.
The analysis of the downloaded data can then be handed over to third-party consultants that will manage it for you. However, the digital alternative via specialised software is a huge step forwards in the right direction in terms of simplicity, time and cost efficiency, adaptability and autonomy.
Streamlining the data process
Time is saved not only by facilitating the circulation of data through tachograph accessories that allow for Remote Download of information, but also by being able to manage this data easily with software adapting itself to companies and drivers' various needs. This is most apparent through OPTAC3 software within a wide range of their specialised products. This web-based program lets its users download digital vehicles and analogue charts freely, generates reports easily and automatically runs infringement verifications. In a larger operator-based logistics structure, managing a large fleet of vehicles, this can allow for smoother and faster coordination as a team. In a different context, its hands-on simplicity will be a decisive asset for independent owner-drivers to self-manage their work without an intermediate service.
A sustainable investment
The legal nature of downloading tachograph data to adhere to EU regulations means that its use is extremely frequent, justifying a stable investment aside from third-party consultation. Besides offering unlimited downloads for a minimal fee per driver per week, an important factor for saving money in the future is the program's capacity for growth and evolution, with regular updates, ensuring the smoothest handling of customer support and training. This provides not only a definite value for money but a strong sense of consistency and client follow-up beyond its initial tasks.
Flexibility is the key
The best technology is not the one that you must strive to adapt to – it is the equipment that can seamlessly adjust to your own situation and requirements. The true upper hand for the best analysis software is its capacity to provide a vast array of features for different users regardless of their previous experience with analysis software. Furthermore, this flexible nature also extends to compatibility with existing equipment: companies on any level or scale within the commercial and passenger transport industry can possess data analysis software capable of complying to a wide range of fleet sizes and types, while benefitting from consistent quality and easy access.
Your data is in your own hands
Allowing you full control over how you want to download the data and present it gives you the means and choices to decide exactly how you want to manage your time and work schedule. Ultimately, the aim of the perfect analysis tool is to create a management device that personally assists and corresponds to its operator or driver in the best way possible.
