Generic import- Training update

Posted on: Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Vision can now be used to import and display training information for existing and new drivers regardless of whether they have 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 DCPC overview page and on the driver profile under the training tab

Uploading the data
