Novadata explains Earned Recognition at the CV Show
24 - 28 April 2018, NEC, stand 5F04
Novadata, one of the first providers of both audits and IT systems for the DVSA's new Earned Recognition scheme, has experts at hand to explain the benefits of the scheme at this year's CV Show. The company's team of transport professionals will be fielding questions and explaining how Operators can show interest and prepare to join the scheme, the pilot for which is already complete.
Novadata has more than three decades' experience of helping Operators to comply with their undertakings by providing tachograph analysis, training for both drivers and managers, and developing its own range of compliance products, so is uniquely placed to offer advice on the new scheme.
"We're delighted to be involved with the scheme at this early stage, as it very neatly fits with our many years spent supporting Operators in managing and planning ahead for their compliance with transport legislation," explains Chairman and founder, Derek Broomfield.
"We're also very pleased to be able to offer face to face advice to Operators thinking of joining on our stand at the CV Show. We're one of the first auditors for Earned Recognition, so we do urge Operators to take the opportunity to pick our brains about whether it's right for them, either at the show or by contacting us afterwards.
"There are some misconceptions about the scheme, most notably a fear that membership will give Government direct access to all your data and processes, but this simply isn't the case," he says. "Operators will make a simple monthly report, which they can do using the software that we offer, and all your data remains private. But if you have any fears or reservations, you should come to the stand or pick up the phone and we'll explain!"
The company is already undertaking its first audits as keen Operators are applying to join the pilot scheme. If accepted, full members will start to benefit from an enhanced reputation and will see their vehicles stopped less frequently. Members of the full scheme, now the pilot has been successfully completed, will also be less likely for their premises to be visited for an inspection by the DVSA, as well as being stopped less frequently.
Novadata's expert transport training courses, aimed at both managers and drivers also help organisations contemplating joining the Earned Recognition scheme by ensuring that they are provided with the most up to date information on industry best practice and the transport industry legal framework.
The company's market leading tachograph analysis services and software also help Operators to ensure that they are complying with the law, while Novadata's range of products, including its comprehensive range of vehicle check and defect report books, assist Operators in maintaining a healthy Operator Compliance Risk score.
Novadata's comprehensive offering can be found on its new website at www.novadata.co.uk.
