Continued growth for Road Tech
Road Tech Computer Systems was established in 1984 by Derek Beevor who said he was motivated after becoming frustrated with the lack of software available to help run his 20-vehicle transport company Tudor Transport. He worked with a software designer to create the road transport software package, Roadrunner.
Road Tech now employs 85 staff and has several thousand customers for its range of software solutions.
In 2004, two years ahead of the digital tachograph, Beevor and his programming team began developing Tachomaster which analyses digital, analogue and Working Time directive data for £1 per driver per week. Tachomaster was launched in 2006, offering not just compliance, but internet-based multi-depot real-time analysis and management reporting. By November 2015, Tachomaster had analysed 80 million card, chart and vehicle downloads.
“At Road Tech we are so confident in the power of our software, ongoing development, back-up, support and dedication to what we do, that unlike our competitors, we do not ask our customers to sign contracts before they can use our software systems,” says a spokesperson. “The reason that our customers remain loyal to us, is not because they have a contract, but because we do everything that we can to exceed their expectations and treat them with integrity. We recognise that a good reputation is hard won, but easily lost.”
Road Tech has its head office based at Shenley Hall in Hertfordshire with additional offices in Sydney, Australia.
