DVSA Earned Recognition
DVSA Earned Recognition

You might have heard of it before, but might not be sure what it is or what is involved. As a fleet or workshop manager your days are busy enough without having to research government schemes, so let us outline what it means and how we can help you to benefit from increased efficiency and profits.

What is it?

DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators is a new way to prove your organisation meets driver and vehicle standards. Participants regularly share performance information with the DVSA and in return, their vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections.

What does this mean for you?

  • Be an exemplary operator, and be able to prove this when you bid for contracts.
  • Be recognised as a DVSA-approved operator on a list on GOV.UK.
  • Reducing roadside inspections, allowing for increased efficiency and reduced possibility of fines.
  • Reduced DVSA visits to your site.
  • The peace of mind that you are hitting your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and have all of the data to present when required.
  • Use of the DVSA’s Earned Recognition marque on your website.

“We are proud to work with the Accelerator team and appreciated their full support that helped us to become the first firm in Scotland to get this award”

Jill Ferguson – Ferguson Transport Ltd

How does it all work?

Our Accelerator system will track a set list of KPIs for you, without you having to do anything outside of entering your jobs into the system as you normally would.

Reports are automatically submitted to the DVSA via Accelerator every 4 weeks, this will inform if you’ve missed any of the KPIs by a set amount. If this occurs, DVSA will work with you to fix the issue. NOTE: The DVSA do not have direct access to your data.

Joining DVSA Earned Recognition

If you wish to join the Earned Recognition scheme, you must be using a digital compliance system like Accelerator. You will not be able to join the Earned Recognition scheme if you are still using paper – Not to worry as Accelerator can have you up and running in no time.

I’m interested!

Accelerator opens ‘virtual’ stand at ITT Hub
Accelerator opens ‘virtual’ stand at ITT Hub

Despite ITTHub being postponed until 2021, Accelerator is running a ‘virtual stand’ over the next two days, sharing live product demonstrations, upcoming developments and news with you.

The virtual stand is open for business!

Today (Wednesday 13 May) the inaugural Innovation and Technology in Transport (ITT) Hub exhibition and conference was due to open at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

Due to COVID-19 the show – highlighting forward thinking innovation and technology for road based transport – has been postponed to 12-13 May 2021.

Accelerator provides innovative and forward-thinking fleet and workshop management software to the road transport industry, and would have been at the ITT Hub showcasing the latest developments of its award winning ‘Accelerator’ software.

Not to be thwarted, instead today and tomorrow (Wednesday/Thursday – the days the show was due to happen) it is running its own ‘Virtual ITT Hub’ in the form of an interactive online stand – offering online demonstrations, ‘on-stand’ chat facilities and a chance for existing Accelerator customers to benefit from some free ‘show offer’ training.

MD Victoria Baker says: “This is our second ‘virtual show’ and comes hot on the heels of the great feedback and interaction we created when we recently ran our own virtual CV show.

“That gave us the opportunity to have conversations with potential new customers as well as ensure existing customers are maximising the use of Accelerator.

“We will be looking to do the same during the virtual ITT Hub show.

“During the current situation we are also working very hard to help our many road transport customers who are providing valuable services to the NHS as well as those who operate in the distribution and delivery sector.”

Introduction to Accelerator

While there are still some businesses using paper or spreadsheets to manage their fleets, there are clearly reasons to adopt digital document and management processes, and plenty of businesses have because of their speed, efficiency, and superior compliance.

Accelerator fleet and workshop software – over 23 years in the making, allows operators to do exactly that and manage their fleets’ documents and other data from one place.

It is special because of its cutting edge, innovative software, that is backed up by an experienced team of developers.

“As a family business, we know all of our customers personally and go the extra mile to ensure that each system is configured to meet each customer’s needs,” says MD Victoria Baker.

“We also provide ongoing free updates and new special module developments which make Accelerator the most comprehensive system on the market today.”

Accelerator helps fleet and vehicle workshop owners become more efficient, generate new revenues and offer an enhanced customer experience.

It is configured to your needs, is easy to install and use, and has a series of associated modules including Earned Recognition, ATF Lane, Hire and Go digital Go Mobile.

The system is scalable and can be tailored to the suit large fleets, individual workshops and everything in between.

Fleet users can manage all aspects of DVSA compliance including advanced vehicle inspections to generate bespoke inspection templates, service sheets and driver check routines.

The new Dashboard module now includes the latest Earned Recognition Scheme interface that allows real-time monitoring of inspections, MOT’’s and fault corrective actions.

Once installed the highly experienced and talented Accelerator team provide training (online and in-house), support and upgrades.

It also provides all of its customers with their own My World web support portal where they can access their own details and support history as well as a range of FAQs, articles, and video training aids.

Rebuilding Old Glassworks for Technopoly
Rebuilding Old Glassworks for Technopoly

Technopoly is taking the opportunity during lockdown to rearrange its Southern offices at Mor Workspace.

This involves opening up the wall between the main office and the rear office rooms.

The first stage was to remove around 15 heavy bookcases that were already installed as a wall and then to remove the rear boarding to expose the framework.

Next, we will be taking quotes to design and fit a new glass wall and sliding doors to open up this area so it can be used as a training area/meeting room/video suite and temporary exhibition area.

So it’s a great opportunity to make this new space as versatile and useful as possible.

All of the team are excited to get this project underway and to escaping lockdown as soon as practically possible and to return to this new office, which was only occupied by us for five days before the lockdown.

As soon as we can we will be inviting our customers to visit us and see for themselves our new place and perhaps take advantage of some training or just the opportunity to meet the team to discuss any new requirements or developments. Everyone will be most welcome.

Watch this space for more news.
