Generic import- Drivers

Posted on: Wednesday, 22 February 2017

 Vision can now be used to import and update driver information for existing and new drivers regardless of whether they have tachograph data uploaded for analysis by FTA.

The information is added by the company to a pre- defined template and uploaded to Vision where it is displayed on the Manage my driver page and detailed within the driver profile.

Uploading the data
