Generic import- Collision data

Posted on: Wednesday, 22 February 2017

 Vision can now be used to import and display collision information for existing and new drivers regardless of whether they have tachograph analysis carried out by FTA or not.

The information is added by the company to a pre- defined template and uploaded to Vision where the information is displayed on a new collision overview page and on the driver profile under the collision tab as well as on the Performance overview and Performance overview report

Uploading the data
