Regular vehicle inspections are a vital element of fleet management. Pre-use defect inspections are a prerequisite for both FORS and Van Excellence operating standards and for companies with a Vehicle Operators Licence, it is essential that they operate within the DVSA safety and maintenance guidelines.
The FleetCheck Mobile App ensures that the vehicle inspection process is robust and compliant, with minimal intervention and zero paperwork. Intuitive to use, it alleviates the errors and inefficiencies associated with paper inspection.
Ensuring employees regularly inspect and record data concerning their vehicle can be tricky. Managing that data across multiple spreadsheets and endless emails can be even harder. However, such has been the success of FleetCheck’s Mobile App, that since its launch in March 2017, it has recorded over 130,000 vehicle inspection safety checks.
For operators of the smallest to largest fleets, it has transformed the way essential vehicle safety inspections are planned, carried out, communicated and recorded, making it easy to schedule, carry out, confirm and follow up all forms of inspection, from daily walkarounds to formalised weekly or monthly safety checks.
In addition to carrying out regular safety checks on their vehicles, the driver can record any fuel purchases, update their mileage, view all the essential contact information for the support services the company provides, have visibility of the MOT, Road Tax and other key information about the vehicle, and even update their service records through the app. For companies operating plant and machinery, the easily customisable checksheets can be configured to carry out whatever inspections the company may wish to perform on a wide range of plant and machinery.
In our latest case study, Ben Povey, national transport manager for Krispy Kreme, explains the positive benefits the FleetCheck Mobile App has brought to their business.
