Recruitment agency Pertemps has begun using software firm Jaama's Licence Portal for driver licence checking.
Pertemps has more than 110 branches and specialist agencies as well as staff operating as implants at clients' sites - some 260 locations in total - with each effectively functioning as an individual entity.
The business is using Jaama for licence validation on not only almost 1,000-company car and 'grey fleet' drivers, but also thousands of agency drivers.
Pertemps, which has a pool of agency drivers who all have DVLA validation checks undertaken at branch level, first trialled Licence Portal at its Redditch and Greenford branches involving about 300 drivers, and the system is now being rolled out across its branch network.
The firm's fleet IT support manager Tim Stokes said: "The solution has been very well received by our employees undertaking driver licence checks.
"The Licence Portal dashboard provides a real-time overview of licence status, the number of checks carried out - everything that is required including driver history.
"[Licence Portal] meets our requirements for high volume driver licence checking verification against the DVLA database. Administratively it is very efficient."
Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: "Our standalone licence checking solution is ideal for an organisation just needing to check driver risk which is perfectly aligned to Pertemps' agency drivers' requirements.
"Licence Portal is designed solely for managing driver risks with an easy-to-use format and information displayed on a straightforward dashboard."
"If businesses only require a licence checking/driver risk solution then the new Licence Portal is for them. Our customers who carry out licence checks along with managing their fleet and assets will continue do this within [Jaama's fleet management system] Key2."
