New vehicle systems for DoT

The Department of Transport has signed up a Jersey company to help revamp its vehicle registration and licensing systems.

Teleologica will take charge of the project, consisting of two phases which should take roughly eight months to complete.

Phase 1 of the contract includes designing the system and building a series of prototypes to be tested during Autumn this year.

The project should provide a better user interface, search functionality, better data accuracy, and automated calculation of duty.

Phase 2 will introduce internet services including the ability to pay vehicle duty online.

It is envisaged that the system will be ready to go live in January 2008.
