Leasing and hire firm TIP has launched a new service which helps operators attain the DVSA's Earned Recognition accreditation by minimising the time they spend on maintenance compliance, so they can focus on their core business.
Under the scheme, known as Earned Recognition by TIP, the company’s operations team will work with operators to manage their compliance using the TIP platform, which sits within its FleetRadar compliance portal.
The service, which offers around-the-clock, seven-days-a-week access to the platform, will make compliance event data entries, manage compliance documentation and monitor maintenance key performance indicators on behalf of customers.
Mike Furnival, TIP Trailer Services MD for UK and Ireland, said: “Having seen a growing interest in Earned Recognition from our customers, we were keen to ensure that we could provide an effective solution to support their needs, as and when they looked to pursue Earned Recognition status with the DVSA.
“Using Earned Recognition by TIP will enable operators to reap the benefits of being in the DVSA scheme, such as reduced roadside or on-site inspections, but with the minimum of time spent analysing maintenance KPIs, ensuring compliance documentation is available and entering data, since our teams will be doing that for them.”
He added: “The scheme helps reduce costly downtime for operators, whilst improving safety on our roads through improved compliance and we are only too delighted to support it whilst meeting the needs of our customers, by introducing Earned Recognition by TIP.
“The system has a visually appealing dashboard to help operators see at a glance how they are performing in terms of maintenance compliance and to help them to demonstrate to the DVSA that they have effective processes in place when it comes to maintaining their vehicles.”
