TechTalk – Order of Malta vehicle app improves safety and efficiency

Date Published : May 30th, 2019    Published By : admin

The Tranzaura Vehicle Check App has made improvements to efficiency and safety across the ambulance fleet, and it also saves them time in their workshop and repairs, which results in the voluntary organisation having more valuable time to fulfil their charitable mandate.

There are currently over 2,500 Order of Malta volunteers in almost 70 locations around Ireland. OMAC covers offers first aid, ambulance and emergency care services in most of Ireland's principal cities and towns. The Tranzaura app will now replace paper checks on all of their vehicles.

Cmdt Tony O'Mara, Regional Director for the South West Region of the Ambulance Corps said: “We trialled the app in our Limerick ambulance unit. The vehicle safety checks can now be done using the Tranzaura App by the driver just walking around the vehicle. This will improve efficiency and safety across our entire fleet. Time saved in the workshop, or at base, means more time being able to fulfil our charitable mandate, which includes community and elderly care services across the whole island of Ireland.”

Tranzaura, which operates the App for fleets of all sizes across Ireland, the UK and globally have recently signed a large contract which sees 2,300 London bus drivers using our app and they are delighted to have partnered with the Order of Malta.

Tranzaura Chief Executive Officer, Shane Mann said the Tranzaura App isn’t solely for large commercial fleets, it also works for smaller and mid-range fleets too “We are delighted to partner with the Order of Malta. We will be expanding into the UK and international markets, but the Tranzaura App isn’t solely for large commercial fleets -  the app also works for smaller and mid-range fleets, and there are a lot of Irish charities operating transport fleets using paper checks, when our app would save them time and money, and make life much easier.”

“We have proven in London, one of the busiest cities in the world, that our app can make savings, increase compliance, and increase efficiencies. We are confident there is a market for the Tranzaura vehicle safety check app in every city in the world. As well as buses and coaches we also provide vehicle safety and tachograph analysis services to commercial vehicles throughout Ireland and the UK.”

Limerick City and County Mayor, Cllr James Collins officially launched the contract agreement this week. Speaking at the event, Mayor Collins said “The Order of Malta has a long history with Limerick when it arrived in Ireland in 1171, it set up two hospitals, one in Dublin and the other in County Limerick, in the town we now call Hospital. Tranzaura is a really exciting company, based in Limerick, but growing internationally, through its bespoke transport technology software. It’s great to see an app designed by a Limerick company being used around the globe. It shows yet again that Limerick continues to produce leading companies in the tech sphere.”
