EasyTac V2 for a better view of driver data Monday 17 March 2008 PDF Print A new version of the EasyTac downloader, launched today by Dot Distribution, promises to bring an even wider range of features and benefits to an even broader range of customers. With no hidden costs or ‘lock in’ charges, EasyTac downloader version 2 is a complete, low-cost, digital tachograph data downloading and reporting package for your PC, compatible with Windows Vista as well as most other PC systems. As well as helping you to meet all your legal obligations for downloading driver and vehicle data, EasyTac V2 has several new features including automatic visual reminders for when to download, in accordance with government recommendations. Data can also be instantly viewed and printed as activity reports, graphs and summaries. The ability to view reports and graphical timelines for vehicle unit data, as well as card data, is now also available. For some companies this has become more important as the UK’s VOSA (the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) has started to advise that transport operators may need to check their data, for example, to see whether vehicles are being driven without a card for any length of time. EasyTac downloader now automatically creates easy-to-manage lists of drivers and vehicles from the downloaded data. These include graphical reminders showing when each driver’s card and tachograph unit needs to be downloaded. A simple 'traffic light' system is used to show when downloads are due – green for ok, orange for due now and red for overdue. “As well as introducing brand new features, EasyTac downloader V2 comes with no hidden costs and we provide free ongoing support,” said Dan Isaaman, Technical Director of Dot Distribution. “Our aim with the development of EasyTac has been to produce best-of-breed software which has everything you need, whatever your individual circumstances as a driver or fleet manager.” EasyTac downloader is suitable for many transport operators, from owner-drivers to small and large fleets. It enables you to download, view and store your digital tachograph data, for any number of drivers and vehicles, without ongoing charges. The software can create detailed summary and graphical reports from the downloaded files. You can view, print and export the reports to other software applications. Plus you can send the files to anyone via email for further off-site analysis if required. EasyTac downloader is designed to be easy to use, requiring minimal computer knowledge. Lists of drivers and vehicles are automatically created and updated each time you download your data, and the simple “traffic light” reminder system helps you to identify those you need to download. EasyTac downloader makes it easy to identify the time period you wish to analyse, after which you can view detailed activity lists, summaries by day or shift, and graphical timeline reports. You can leave EasyTac downloader running on a PC to download and store data automatically whenever a driver's card is inserted into a reader or a VU download device is attached. Data is stored in tamper-proof files that conform to the European standards as required by the transport authorities. Files can be located on the local PC or on a shared network drive. EasyTac downloader will also import and display your existing data to allow effortless upgrading from other software applications. EasyTac downloader comes with Easy-Follow user guides and free technical support. Updates are provided via the EasyTac web site. Typical customer uses Owner-drivers – if you own and drive a vehicle equipped with a digital tachograph, EasyTac downloader is a simple solution for downloading your driver's card and vehicle unit data, and recording your weekly activities. Small fleets – if you operate a small fleet of vehicles with digital tachographs, you can use EasyTac downloader to store your data and check your drivers' hours and activities. EasyTac file formats are fully compatible with all third-party software and off-site analysis services, should your needs grow over time. Large fleets – EasyTac downloader gives you control over your data, including where it is stored and how it is passed on for analysis, rather than relying on a complete ‘end-to-end’ downloading and analysis solution where you are locked in. Low-usage – if you have limited driver activity, EasyTac downloader will help you meet the minimum legal requirements at very low cost, even if you have a large fleet. Examples include construction companies and vehicle hire firms.
