In the next 48 hours, 10 drivers and 4 office staff from the haulage industry will begin to test the new app for UK HGV drivers that are required to adhere to the UK tachograph rules. The app will be tested for 2 weeks to prove the daily rest, weekly rest, twice weekly allowance and much more. The app has some great features and a few that cannot be replicated without the amazing coding, understanding and testing that has gone in to this app.
The Ask Simon app can give you a list of scenarios to work with for your day, based on the remaining duty you have left and what would be most efficient for your time. These have been tested, proven, broken and fixed many times over to get the Ask Simon app to the place it is today. It’s more than just a tachograph counter and timer, it’s a real tool that does the job of the person Andy used to phone when he was in a truck, needing help with the law. Now that Simon is not around any more, this app had to be developed and stands as great testament to Simon’s knowledge.
The development spans 915 files and nearly a half a million lines of coding with many developers with their own specific tasks all knitted together by some very clever methods to give us the app that a selected few have had access to. We are very proud of what has been achieved and looking forward to the feedback from the Beta testers and their findings, suggestions and any faults before we release this.
