FTA launches App keeping drivers informed and on the move

Monday 26 October 2015

FTA has today launched Driverfta - a brand new App giving drivers complete visibility of their drivers’ hours data, making sure they have up-to-date information to help them stay compliant.

Described as ‘the ultimate App for drivers’ - Driverfta enables them to keep track of their most recent driving updates including date and time of their last card upload and the latest activity included in that upload. They can view key working times, weekly rest figures, and other drivers’ hours information including what time their next shift can start.

Responding to the requests of its members, FTA’s in-house developers have created the new Driverfta App. Powered by Visionfta, it is designed to make the management, control and analysis of drivers’ hours easier than ever before, saving admin time and making sure both the organisation and the driver remain compliant.

Sam Varrall – FTA Tachograph product owner said: “FTA is delighted to announce Driverfta which gives drivers a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and any infringements incurred. This enables them to take responsibility of their own hours, assisting them in planning their day more accurately and ensuring they keep within the legal limits. We have listened to the needs our members and after long discussions have worked with them to develop innovative software to save time, money and improve compliance.”

Following the launch of Visionfta last year, FTA has continued to work with its members and developed innovative software. Driverfta keeps them informed on the move as it provides them with a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and infringements.

With changes in technology and customer demand, organisations have highlighted that drivers need a more transparent view of their working hours with clear indications of forward hours and driver history to reduce the risk of infringements. More importantly, this information needs to be easily accessible so drivers can access it quickly and at their own convenience without the need to return to the office.

Drivers will also be able to view the work history screen which initially shows the last two weeks of information received by FTA including digital, analogue and data manually added to Visionfta such as holidays and sickness, as well as highlighting vehicles used and any infringements incurred.

The new Driverfta App is available to FTA members to keep track of drivers’ hours and working times to help ensure they keep within the legal limits.
