On-street validation

For real-time enforcement, the mobile Blue Badge module empowers CEOs on the street to use their handheld devices to instantly verify the validity of Blue Badges displayed in vehicles. Invalid, out of date or fake badges can be identified using the handheld’s camera which links with the DfT central database, providing fast and accurate checks to curb misuse. 

Benefits of Taranto Blue Badge Checker

  • Easy to install on CEO’s handhelds as part of the Taranto Mobile solution
  • Supporting photo evidence easily obtained
  • PCN can immediately be issued for Blue Badge wrongful use
  • Links seamlessly with Taranto Back-Office

Efficient Application Processing

 In the back-office, Taranto’s Blue Badge module offers a user-friendly front-end interface for applications and renewals, enabling councils to streamline the entire process. This module seamlessly integrates with the Department for Transport (DfT) portal, allowing eligible residents to apply for or renew their Blue Badge online. Back-office administrators can then review and manage these applications within Taranto. The Blue Badge module enables councils to maintain a database of locally-issued badges, and integrates with Taranto Back-Office for simplified administration.

The module incorporates robust fraud prevention measures at both the application and renewal stages, allowing administrators, for example, to check whether duplicate applications have been made or a previous application has been rejected or if a Blue Badge has already been issued by another authority.
