Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms offering subscription models has become a preferred organisational method for many businesses. In theory, they make business processes more manageable, help you to meet business objectives, and centralise data storage in the cloud. However, many once innovative platforms known for bringing systems together are now antiquated, struggling to fully integrate with older SaaS providers. Technology is meant to make our lives easier, so why, in this high-tech age, are some SaaS providers unable to provide complete integration with legacy systems?
Data sharing, platform integration and versatility are essential in today’s compliance landscape. SaaS platforms that resist change risk a ‘do-or-die’ scenario. Continuing proactive integration of technologies is crucial to meet your client base’s evolving needs and push the industry forward. As an Advanced MOT Technician and Founder of MOT Juice, I speak to hundreds of VTS owners every year, all needing fully integrated, cooperative SaaS solutions.
Many Vehicle Testing Station (VTS) units rely on Quality Management Systems (QMS) to manage DVSA compliance. While VTSs commonly use a range of providers for Tester annual training and exams, many MOT regulation SaaS systems fail to integrate this assortment of data. This means valuable CPD training, assessment revision and exam data are missed or lost. Even if you thought you were compliant, if you can’t evidence training and exam results on the fly during a VE visit, you risk the wrath of the DVSA.
The DVSA lays out strict compliance guidance for VTS units to follow. Failure to comply can result in heavy fines, red RAG scores, being struck off and even prison sentences. Given the risk to the business from not meeting compliance obligations, SaaS technologies must evolve with the times, making it easy for their client base to stay compliant. Inflexible technologies that restrict data sharing will become outdated, unusable and obsolete in the not-too-distant future.
