Time for a Pitstop

Nov 20, 2012
Hoddesdon-based Rocksand Computers has developed a digital tachograph reporting package that’s simple to use and will help operators fully comply with EU Regulation 561/2006 and keep VOSA happy – it’s called Pitstop.
Pitstop imports digital tachograph and driver card data to a PC that’s been collected by a standard download device, archives it for safekeeping and creates reports and graphs of driver hours, infringement and speeding analysis, all in seconds. No Internet connection is required as the data stays on the computer.

Paul Sapsford, the company’s MD said that Pitstop has been designed with the end user in mind.  “The tachograph products we examined were not particularly intuitive to use or navigate, a few were quite complex,” he explained, adding that users can learn their way around Pitstop in a few minutes. “Apart from the user-friendly nature of the software and the production of the standard driver activity, speeding and vehicle reports, all driving and daily/weekly rest infringement types are flagged, not just the ‘exceeding 4½ hours driving per session’ infringement.”  Some other products do not include infringement reporting without buying an upgrade to a more expensive version.

Apart from ensuring that drivers have kept within the legislation, Pitstop has a very useful Management Planner feature that includes the amount of driving time remaining in the current and following week, the amount of working time remaining (under the WTD legislation) and any rest compensation due.

 Pitstop has a one-off price of £165 + VAT. More information from:
