All DKV customers can access the DKV eReporting online platform. It enables them to plan and review payments of the entire fleet (fuel expenses, road tolls and purchases of services), track VAT refund status and generate warning reports of unscheduled transactions. The platform’s users can also set alerts. Alerts are triggered by a driver’s unauthorised actions; if this is the case, the management of a haulage company receives a special e-mail notification.
The issuer of the DKV Card has also launched an innovative solution for optimised route planning. A special calculator enables users to calculate a detailed amount of road tolls payable for travelling on a given route. The calculation takes into account all the vehicle’s parameters such as the authorised gross weight, number of axles or exhaust emission class. Thanks to the DKV Maps toll a haulier can make sure in advance that its account balance is sufficient to cover all necessary toll expenses.
One of the key areas of DKV Euro Service operations is the development of online services. The operator focuses on applications which will enable customers to autonomously process any type of data, plan a cost-effective journey or even track vehicles in real time. Such solutions are based on the DKV eReporting application which already allows its users to freely process transaction data with just a few clicks.
