Coach operator ‘up to the Marque’

with TruTac CPT Tacho Analysis

Stanley Travel, the County Durham-based PSV operator, reports

improved driver monitoring and tighter compliance control

since switching to CPT Tacho Analysis.

The long-established family-run firm holds two prestigious

accreditations, Coach Marque - awarded by the Confederation of

Passenger Transport and Earned Recognition – awarded by DVSA.

Stanley Travel provides a wide range of coach services locally and

throughout the UK, all of which benefit from CPT Tacho Analysis

software - installed three years ago.

Developed by compliance software leaders TruTac in partnership

with the CPT, CPT Tacho Analysis includes complete web-based,

instant digital and analogue tachograph analysis which is fully

Earned Recognition-accredited and supports EU and GB Domestic

Drivers’ Hours & Rest Time Rules (including WTD).

The cloud-based system seamlessly integrates with all remote

downloading options and provides instant access to clear and

concise compliance data, includingmanager and driver dashboards

with KPI reporting. This allows Stanley Travel to make comparisons

against UK infringement levels – a key consideration when

satisfying their ER (Earned Recognition) criteria and as Director,

Andrew Scott points out, one of the main reasons Stanley Travel

selected the system is because it’s fully compatible with DVLA’s ER


“We are one of only a handful of PCV operators that hold ER status

and are also one of the founder members.” he says.

He further explains about some of the benefits the system has

brought to the operation:

“From day trips and group travel to corporate bookings and the

school run, every coach journey must run like clockwork – not only

from a customer satisfaction point of view but also in terms of

efficient and legal operations. CPT Tacho Analysis plays amajor part

in achieving this, both through tighter control of key information

and in terms of driver debriefing and journey planning.”

Furthermore, using the CPT Daily Checks Driver app, Stanley Travel

drivers can monitor all their own tachograph information daily.

Transport Managers can access the system from each depot and

provide guidance or disciplinary action, as and when needed. This

process enables compliance issues to be identified whilst activities

are still fresh in drivers’ minds. The automatically emailed reports

are then stored in each driver’s main HR file.

The driver debriefing module also enables drivers to log on to their

own area of the systemto view their duties, daily rest status, earliest

next duty start and other compliance data.

“CPT Tacho Analysis was easy to install and is simple to use.” Adds

Andrew Scott. “The system is a superb management tool, helps

to reduce infringements and cuts the overall risk of inadvertently

breaching tachograph and drivers’ hours rules. We don’t expect a

DVSA inspection any time soon, but while using this transparent

system, we certainly have nothing to hide!”

TruTac, theUK’s largest independent compliance software company,

has also developed two other software modules in partnership

with the CPT: CPT Daily Checks – an easy-to-use App which covers

first use and all daily driver vehicle checks, with CPT-approved

templates and CPT Licence Check which enables online verification

checks on UK driving licences and CPC information for compliance

and insurance. TruTac also offers free data storage and upgrades.

For further details of CPT Tacho Analysis, CPT Daily Checks and

CPT Licence Check, including discounted pricing, operators

should contact their CPT local area manager or contact TruTac on

024 7669 0000 or email qu
