A Chesterfield-based business has been awarded the contract to provide cutting-edge
software which underpins a new product launched by FORS – the Fleet Operator
Recognition Scheme.

Transport Data Interchange (TDI) – which offers a comprehensive suite of software and
systems designed to help transport operators remain compliant – has been appointed a
FORS Affinity Partner, one of a select group of companies offering discounted, FORS branded
products and services for its 5,000+ members.

Built on TDI’s ‘Disc-Check’, a Software as a Service (Saas) solution, the new FORS Tacho
Service provides dedicated tachograph analysis software which can be securely accessed
from anywhere and on any device.

The software allows multiple methods of data transfer, including mobile uploads,
automated remote download of driver and vehicle data via Webfleet Tachoshare+ and
manual upload via your PC.

FORS members who subscribe to the new FORS Tacho Service, will benefit from a product
which delivers increased accuracy and the streamlining of their reporting processes. In turn,
this facilitates the fulfilment of requirement D7 – working time and drivers’ hours of the
FORS Standard.

Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager says:
“Our members are always looking for new ways to manage their fleets more efficiently,
achieve greater levels of professionalism and stay ahead of the curve. We look forward to
seeing our members benefitting from the software expertise and the advanced
functionality that the FORS Tacho Service package has to offer.

TDI Director, John Brookes comments:
“Being able to rely on timely, accurate tachograph data – and then being able to interpret
and process that data efficiently – is crucial for operators looking to maintain high
professional standards for their fleet. TDI is delighted to be appointed a FORS Affinity
Partner and we look forward to assisting FORS members and providing them with the peace
of mind they require. FORS members who join the scheme can enjoy discounts of up to 35%
on our standard rates. Further FORS discounts are available via our partnership with
Webfleet including 2 months free Tachoshare+ and telematics subscription”
