Road Skills launches new online tool to streamline Fors record-keeping

Fors training firm Road Skills is launching a new record-keeping system aimed at making life easier for fleet operators.

The Fors Pass Online package, powered by FleetCheck, will be officially launched at next week’s Freight in the City Expo at London’s Alexandra Palace and brings together all the key data management elements of the Fors scheme, including:

 

  • Driver training
  • Driver care
  • Telematics
  • Fuel management
  • Licence checking

 

Director David Somers said: “For the first time, fleet operators can use one simple interface to manage everything they need to achieve and maintain their Fors accreditation, confident that the software has been designed to meet their specific needs.

 

“We’ve simplified the whole process, and as well as making it really easy to keep on top of all the compliance data, operators can also use Fors Pass Online to analyse that data and use it more effectively to increase margins.”

 

The system also allows operators to create checklists in the right format for the Fors auditor and it includes benchmarking for the move from bronze to silver and then gold accreditation.

 

Other key benefits include automatic fuel allocation against each vehicle or driver for accurate costings; exception reporting for easy identification of vehicles and drivers; and repair and maintenance planning for Fors compliance and budgeting.

 

Pricing is dependent on fleet size.

 

Somers added: “With Fors Pass Online, we’re offering the road transport sector a major step change in how they stay compliant, saving them time, money — and a lot of hassle.”

Road Skills is a work-related road safety risk management and training provider and was one of the first three companies to be made a Fors associate when the scheme was launched in 2008.
