VDIS Journey Manager Safety Software
Journey Manager 4.0 - click here for a list of new features.

The Journey Manager software is the answer for ensuring safe single-vehicle convoys and other work alone situations. Whether it is used as a standalone application or as part of your VDIS suite, this innovative package is a practical, cost effective and simple solution for safety conscious companies.

Employees in a work-alone situation call in to your dispatch to have their information recorded. Departure and Destination is entered with pre-determined check-in times set.

If the employee fails to check-in at the appropriate time, automatic warnings are displayed. Dispatch then takes action to determine the cause of the missed check-in by calling the employee, calling a supervisor or other appropriate measures set out in company policy.

Complete records are kept of each Journey Manager alert, the cause of the problem and how it was resolved.

Whether by company policy or legislation, the ability to consistently record and track work-alone situations is a growing concern for safety managers. This application gives a practical, cost effective and simple solution to the problem.
