Descartes Systems Group: Descartes Launches Driving Licence Management and Verification Service for the United Kingdom

CHIPPENHAM, United Kingdom, May 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems
Group (TSX:DSG) (Nasdaq:DSGX), the global leader in uniting
logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced the launch of Descartes
SmartLicence(TM), an integrated driving licence management and verification
service for the United Kingdom.

Descartes SmartLicence is a comprehensive online tool for managing driving
licences and verifying the licence details with the UK's Driver and Vehicle
Licensing Agency (DVLA).The solution provides historical logs that help users
demonstrate to regulatory authorities that they have effective systems and
processes in place to ensure employees are entitled to drive on company
business. Descartes SmartLicence helps assess the risk of licensed drivers
based on endorsement codes and any penalty points, and users can conduct
regular licence checks in accordance with that risk. Risk levels, audit
periods and a range of advanced alerts are configurable to suit business
requirements.

"All UK employers need to ensure that their drivers hold a valid driving
licence," said Mike Ryder, Managing Director TMS Analysis Ltd. "We work with
some of the largest fleets in the UK, and are happy to be able to make the
Descartes SmartLicence service available to our clients for effective
management of driving licences and fast licence verification with the DVLA."

Descartes SmartLicence extends the UK-based Descartes SmartCompliance solution
portfolio. The offering includes Descartes Smartanalysis, a tool currently
used in the UK by thousands of road transport operators to manage and comply
with legislation concerning tachograph data, drivers' hours and the European
Union Working Time Directive. Current Descartes Smartanalysis users can
access Descartes SmartLicence using their existing password credentials.

"Every transport operator needs systems and procedures in place to help them
meet their legal responsibilities. Failure to do so can result in severe
fines and penalties," said Steve Fisher, Managing Director at Descartes
Systems Group UK. "We're pleased to provide a solution that assists busy
Transport Managers in managing compliance with tachograph regulations,
drivers' hours, Working Time Directive and, now, verifying driving licences
on one integrated platform."
