Having each spent over 40 years in the industry, Steve Leslie and Jeff Rose have combined their expertise to develop a paperless transport safety and compliance suite that’s extremely easy to use, cost-effective and compliant – with assistance only ever a phone call away.
A phone app and cloud based software system, TransUltimate has been purpose built for the industry, by transport professionals who know the industry and know it well.
TransUltimate managing director Steve Leslie started out as a truck driver, before managing his own transport businesses. He is a NHVR approved auditor and a supply chain specialist who has assisted countless businesses big and small to comply with their Chain of Responsibility obligations.
Director Jeff Rose started his career as a diesel mechanic, then progressed to branch manager at various transport companies, followed by becoming member services manager for NatRoad. He is also an approved NHVR lead auditor, who has been conducting NHVAS, TruckSafe and WA HVA audits and assisting businesses to gain accreditation in these schemes for over 10 years.
By combining their knowledge and experience, this duo have been able to create an all-inclusive system that records trip details, mass records, driver and vehicle safety checks, faults and more, while allowing compliance with all NHVAS, TruckSafe and WA HVA modules.
Leslie first came up with the idea around four years ago and has since been working together with Rose to finesse the system to get it up to where it’s at today.
“With our background, it made sense to put our heads together,” said Leslie. “Most of the work in the backend has been dedicated to making it simple. And it’s the two of us behind it, so we’re there to assist our clients in any way they need. The system is suited to anyone from an owner driver to a massive fleet of over 1000 vehicles.”
Rose added, “We’ve both been in the industry in one form or another all of our working lives. Steve had the idea for this app and system, so we got together and spoke about it – I liked what he had and jumped straight on board.”
TransUlimate simplifies the recording and reporting process, with some reports generated automatically from the information entered. Drivers can also upload documents directly to the app to reduce the amount of documents that need to be carried.
“Some systems can be quite clunky and difficult to use. TransUltimate is really simple and user-friendly – it’s just one click to generate reports. We also take on board customer feedback. If we think it’s something that will be beneficial to our clients, we add that into our system. We’ve added quite a few extra modules based on customer feedback. We wanted to develop a whole package, rather than have customers needing to sign up to various programs,” Rose added.
Transport compliance adviser Peter Elliot is among those who have gotten behind the system. After managing transport companies, TruckSafe, ALC Codes and leading the development of the Master Code, he has been looking for a paperless system. He confirms and recommends TransUltimate as the best he has seen and is now implementing it for his clients.
“Recommendations like that from the project manager of the Master Code tells us we’re doing something right,” said Leslie.
For added peace of mind, TransUltimate is also automatically updated to keep up with any changes to standards and regulations at no additional cost to customers.
