Announcing Remote Tacho Downloads in the UK

Announcing Remote Tacho Downloads in the UK

June 19th , 2018

Staying compliant with government regulations is one of the biggest challenges facing fleets worldwide. For fleets in the UK and Europe, that means regularly providing tachograph data. Whether this involves manually parking vehicles and tracking down drivers or remembering to schedule a digital download, collecting and analysing driver and vehicle data for inspection is a time consuming, but necessary exercise to comply with the law.

Today, Samsara is excited to announce the expansion of our integrated solution to include remote downloading of tachograph data. Alongside safety, maintenance, and routing, this new feature eliminates the burden of manually collecting driver cards and visiting vehicles by securely downloading tachograph data anytime the driver card is inserted. No scheduling or vehicle visits required.

Remote Tachograph Downloads

Save Time & Money, While Staying Compliant

Our remote downloading solution leverages the power of Samsara’s Vehicle Gateway, to download driver data every time the driver card is inserted and then upload it to the Samsara Dashboard. On the Samsara Dashboard, you’ll find two sets of tachograph data:

  • A list of drivers and vehicles for which we have downloads
  • A list of downloads for that given driver or vehicle

You can easily export your company data for analysis or to present to transport authorities.

Tachograph Dashboard

This streamlined approach gives you immediate access to your driver and vehicle data, simplifying collection and ensuring that you are always ready for government inspections. With automatic downloads, you’ll also have real-time data about your drivers’ working hours at your fingertips, helping you avoid violations and support accurate scheduling.

All together, these new efficiencies will reduce vehicle downtime and administration, helping you save time and money. Over time, we plan to expand our tachograph management offerings to include new features that will further facilitate compliance, enhance efficiency, and make the data collected more actionable.

Remote downloads work seamlessly with the Samsara platform. In addition to easily accessing tachograph data on the Dashboard, you can also quickly gain insights into vehicle location, utilisation, maintenance, safety performance, and routing, helping you optimise your fleet performance.
