Digital Tachograph software and analysis
The birth of Digital Tachograph in May 2006 brought with it the introduction of a wide range Tachograph Analysis software options. A large number of companies have opted for online Digital Tachograph Analysis software solutions whilst others prefer to analyse themselves using stand-alone Tachograph analysis software.
On the face of it, stand-alone solutions seem more cost effective but you have to consider that somebody needs to manage the system and invariably you will be limited to analysis at one site. If you have multiple sites then online options will allow you to collect data from multiple locations and users from each site can have access to the analysis if required. Tachosys have added further value to online systems by ensuring that all data can be centralised directly to the online analysis provider.
It is important to note that all Tachosys products work with all software options.
