TOTAL offers the electronic driver's license control-check for all CARSYNC users
Effective immediately, the new service offer is available in the TOTAL service station network. A location map with all co0rrespondingly-equipped read stations can be viewed online. The service is available not only to TOTAL tank card owners, but to all users of the electronic driver's license control-check from the VISPIRON house.
Company car users know the situation only too well. The verification should be implemented every six months as to whether they are still in possession of a valid driver's license. This ever-recurring process also represents a logistic challenge for fleet managers. Emmanuel Pignet, Tank Card Manager at TOTAL states: "Jointly with VISPIRON, we are offering a fully automated solution. The only prerequisite for this is that the driver's license is provided with a special label of CARSYNC"!
Digital solution with low outlay
Read stations are set up at TOTAL service stations which electronically register the stick-on seal on the documents. The drivers of the company cars are provided with the automatic request to identify themselves as soon as possible via an electronic path - mostly by e-mail.
The control data is then transferred to a Web portal for documentation. There the fleet manager can inspect and further-process the data. In this way, the company, as car owner, has fulfilled its legal obligation rapidly and simply. In addition: The stick-on seal cannot be removed without destroying it. Manipulation is therefore excluded.
As well as the driver's license control-check, fleet managers benefit from the known advantages of a TOTAL tank card: a Germany-wide, comprehensive network of approx. 4,400 service stations of the brands TOTAL, AVIA, Shell and Westphalen offer permanent discounts on fuel, cashless payment, less administrative outlay expenditure through online consumption analyses and cost control.
