Driver Register

JCAD is pleased to announce a new driver register is available in the latest version of LACHS, V5.20.

  • Simplifies claim data entry

GDPR module

  • Cost savings through efficiency ‘“ using a map to plot data will allow appropriate plans to be constructed and implemented
  • Better decision making ‘“ comparing different data sets allows for a greater understanding of an issue and for better decisions to be made off the back of it
  • Managing geographically ‘“ managing assets, serving customers/citizens, making decisions, and more accurate communication.
