East Trans embraces new driver handbook technology

In an effort to move away from paper-based processes, East Trans has digitised its driver communications with The Driver Handbook smartphone app and dedicated content management system, TDHConnect.

With the aim of moving the business forward by introducing new technologies, East Trans signed up to The Driver Handbook for its fleet in early 2021 and is already seeing significant improvements in its ability to communicate with drivers and share business critical information quickly and effectively.

The Driver Handbook is two bespoke, interdependent pieces of software: a mobile app and a web-based content management system. Designed for businesses that operate a fleet of any size or type, The Driver Handbook introduces mobile device technology to replace the traditional printed driver handbooks and other essential business information. There is an additional layer of functionality provided by TDHConnect, which allows managers to load company-specific information, monitor driver progress and communicate with users instantly, no matter their location.

Whilst initially using the app for The Driver Handbook’s industry-leading handbook content, East Trans has quickly realised the benefits of loading its own company-specific information for its drivers via TDHConnect. In doing so the company has almost completely removed the need for paper-based driver information.
