Chevin app brings bespoke data collection for mobile workforces
Chevin has launched a new app designed to bridge the communication gap between a mobile workforce and the back office by supporting a wide variety of tasks.
Developed to go beyond standard fleet-based functionality such as vehicle inspections, the FleetWave Forms app enables users to custom-build data collection forms covering everything from business expenses and sales transactions to proof of delivery using features such as dropdowns questions, free text entry, date/time selection, decimals, geolocation stamping, signature capture, barcoding and more.
The app can be used to replace any manual or paper-based data collection form – according to Chevin it’s up to 92% more cost effective – and can even be accessed offline, facilitating automatic uploads into FleetWave as soon as an internet connection becomes available.
Ashley Sowerby, Chevin’s managing director, said: “Relying on manually intensive processes can expose an organisation to risks – not to mention the actual cost and resources involved in managing paper. However, FleetWave Forms helps to improve the management of remote workforces, at the same time reducing administrative tasks and increasing productivity.”
Future upgrades will bring a dispatch tool that allows forms to be attached to work orders and sent to technicians, additional data capture types and ‘look up’ capabilities that allow the user to search the FleetWave database and improved graphical interface.
