Minister’s Innovation Award for EVRS

 The Electronic Vehicle Recall System (EVRS), a system implemented by Land Transport Authority (LTA), Singapore using novaCITYNETS’ PAVO has been awarded the Minister’s Innovation Award (Distinguished) from the Ministry of Transport. It was selected by the Chief Innovation Committee (CIVO) on the basis that the project was innovative and unique, and had made a significant impact on operational efficiency and effectiveness. It has garnered positive feedback from motor dealers, as they are now able to react quickly in the event of a recall.

The Electronic Vehicle Recall System (EVRS) was developed to replace the manual system in managing vehicle recalls. The EVRS leverages on Nova’s PAVO– an e-Collaborative Framework solution to bring to the motor industry a whole new dimension of convenience in notifying LTA and affected vehicle owners of vehicle recalls, and in updating LTA on the progress of the recall programme. With the EVRS, motor dealers are now provided with the latest vehicle ownership information of vehicles affected by recalls so that notification letters would reach the vehicle owners sooner than before. As a result, vehicle owners will be informed of recalls earlier and more affected vehicles get rectified earlier. This helps to improve the vehicle and road safety in Singapore.

Motoring public can also use the EVRS to check if their vehicles are affected by recalls and the recall history of their vehicles as well as details of recent vehicle recalls initiated in Singapore.

The system made it possible for LTA to improve operational efficiency in managing vehicle recalls without the need to deploy more manpower. The manual processing and storage of documents had been replaced with electronic filing of recall information in database. This enables speedy information retrieval for recall statistics and report generation.
