Novadata shares hat trick of compliance expertise at the CV Show
CV Show 24 - 26 April 2018
NEC Birmingham, Stand 5F04.
By visiting the Novadata stand at this year's CV Show, delegates can tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience in no fewer than three vital areas for transport operators - a hat trick of compliance expertise and assistance.
Novadata Transport Training is one of very few UK companies who provide the three disciplines of expert transport training; tachograph analysis and other transport services; and a range of specially developed transport compliance products - all in one organisation.
"A visit to the Novadata stand is a really good use of time, " says Novadata Managing Director, Su Winch. "This is a rare opportunity to access some industry best practice advice on no fewer than three areas that will help to protect your Operator Licence."
Founded more than 30 years ago as a tachograph analysis bureau, Novadata remains at the forefront of services for both digital and analogue tachograph users. These days, the company is also recognised as one of the UK's leading transport training providers for Management CPC, Driver CPC, ADR and DGSA training, as well as vital Operator Awareness Training, held at its own OCR approved centre, which is often recommended by Traffic Commissioners. Its years of training and providing tachograph analysis has also given Novadata a unique insight into the challenges that busy operators face on a daily basis, and enabled the team to develop its own range of helpful compliance products.
All three areas, when planned, undertaken and applied correctly and consistently, help to protect the operator's O-Licence and safeguard their business. "You can't cut corners on transport compliance," warns Su Winch, "but you can make life easier, by ensuring that you are up to date on industry best practice and that you are fully aware of the requirements of the law. Thankfully, our assistance in three vital areas for transport operators can get them off to a flying start on compliance and help them to stay on the move, legally and profitably."
Novadata has an exceptional pass rate for Management CPC candidates, which it attributes to its decision to use only seasoned transport professionals as trainers. "All our trainers have worked in the industry and understand the challenges from a truly hands-on perspective," explains Su Winch. "These same professionals also deliver our range of JAUPT approved Driver CPC courses, which therefore provide a great deal of applicable and practical knowledge and advice. Drivers often come to us expecting the Driver CPC course to be a chore that they must complete, but leave having thoroughly enjoyed their course, determined to put what they've learned into action. Many also depart with some of our range of defect report books. These are very popular as they take you through the daily checks with ease, making sure you comply by following a simple check list." Novadata has also extended its range to include servicing and maintenance check books, which help to keep the whole fleet legal and roadworthy, helping to fulfil O-Licence undertakings.
Not everyone has the time or resources to analyse the data from tachographs, which they must, by law, check regularly. Novadata will take on that task, making sure that the operator can meet vital deadlines and has the correct information to complete accurate Drivers Hours calculations. Novadata is also a leading provider of analysis software and digital tachograph downloading equipment to assist those fleets that do carry out their own analysis in-house. "If you use a combination of analogue and digital tachographs, we can assist with that too, analysing both analogue disks and digital data; combining them into one set of data to help you stay compliant," says Su Winch.
Novadata's team of experts also provide full transport audits, which help to pinpoint any flaws in the processes and procedures of an organisation, so any weaknesses can be tackled and corrected before they come to the attention of a Traffic Commissioner. For those wishing to achieve FORS accreditation, Novadata provides essential assistance in preparing to meet the standards for FORS membership. "And if you've already come to the attention of a Traffic Commissioner, we can help minimise the outcome by helping you put robust processes into place for the future," Su continues.
"You don't often see so much industry expertise on one small stand, but we're looking forward to providing lots of it to the delegates at this year's CV Show."
