FTA’s new App keeps drivers informed and on the move

Jan 08, 2016
The Freight Transport Association has launched a brand new App, Driverfta, which gives drivers complete visibility of their drivers’ hours data.

Described as ‘the ultimate App for drivers’,  Driverfta enables them to keep track of their most recent driving updates including date and time of their last card upload and the last activity included in that upload. They can view key working times, weekly rest figures, and other information including what time their next shift can start. 
Sam Varrall, FTA’s Tachograph Product Owner said, “FTA is delighted to announce Driverfta which gives drivers a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and any infringements incurred. This enables them to take responsibility of their own hours, assisting them in planning their day more accurately and ensuring they keep within the legal limits. We have listened to the needs of our members and after long discussions have worked with them to develop innovative software to save time, money and improve compliance.” 
With changes in technology and customer demand, organisations have highlighted that drivers need a more transparent view of their working hours with clear indications of forward hours and driver history to reduce the risk of infringements. More importantly, this information needs to be easily accessible so drivers can access it quickly at their own convenience without the need to return to the office. 
Following the launch of the Association’s online data management portal Visionfta last year, FTA has continued to work with its members and developed innovative software to keep their drivers informed and on the move providing them with a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and infringements.  
Drivers will also be able to view the work history screen which initially shows the last two weeks of information received by FTA including digital, analogue and data manually added to Visionfta such as holidays and sickness, as well as highlighting vehicles used and any infringements incurred. 
The new Driverfta App is available to FTA members on both iPhone and Android devices.
