Spartan launches TouchPoint driver app
09 October 2023
UK-based Spartan Solutions has launched TouchPoint, a driver app that combines vehicle checks, work execution and truck navigation into one app.
Spartan said it designed TouchPoint in collaboration with rental drivers to deliver a safe and efficient transport workflow that improves customer experience, ensuring drivers only need one mobile device for efficient, paperless equipment transport.
Data capture forms are customisable to specific equipment types, divisions or user roles, which Spartan said “saves driver time by only gathering the necessary drop-off and pick-up information such as picture evidence, fuel and meter readings.”
It also enables transport planners to batch multiple work orders into one transport job, integrates with specialist truck navigation apps and updates the truck dimensions as loads change, helping drivers avoid accidents and bridge strikes by tailoring routes to the truck’s dimensions.
TouchPoint also integrates with what3words so that the driver can quickly navigate to the exact customer location.
Meanwhile, the app features live Estimated Time of Arrival, meaning Hire Control can update customers when unforeseen delays occur. Drivers can also add unexpected return items during pick-up.
Spartan Solutions’ chief operating officer John Glen said, “When we spent time in the truck cab, we realised why drivers were frustrated with the technology they rely on to deliver and return equipment. Issues with badly designed mobile apps and fiddling between multiple devices to do their jobs can slow them down.
“Direct driver feedback inspired us to launch TouchPoint, a one-stop solution for transport planners and rental drivers.”
