FleetCheck safety app enhanced further

By / 2 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

New features have been added to FleetCheck’s Vehicle Inspection App, aiding its use by fleets as take-up continues to accelerate.

FleetCheck’s Peter Golding said safety inspections have become more of a hot topic in recent months

First launched at the CV Show in 2017, the app has been regularly updated since and can now be used for push messaging to send risk management-specific information to drivers and can also communicate new fleet policies for driver reading and confirmation.

The app has now clocked up its seventh million check; just a matter of months after it passed the two million check milestone.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “The Vehicle Inspection App has been one of our success stories of the last few years and its usage is continuing to accelerate rapidly.

“There has been a general increase in awareness of this kind of digital safety check product in the market, both among car and commercial vehicle fleets, and we have been well-placed to take advantage of the trend, even through the coronavirus situation.

“In fact, there is some evidence that safety inspections have become more of a hot topic over the last few months. On one hand, we’ve had some LCV fleets working around-the-clock on frontline services, so safety has been a concern there. Then, on the other, we’ve had some vehicles hardly being used during lockdown, which brings its own safety issues.

“At both these extremes and all points in-between, the app allows fast, accurate and easily auditable safety checks to be carried out, and fleets have recognised its value.”

Golding added: “The new features that we have added to the app this week have very much been driven by user requests and we put a lot of ongoing work into ensuring that the product remains relevant through changing conditions and developing fleet needs.

“In fact, one of the features that helped to drive usage through spring and summer was a fit-to-drive declaration that covered coronavirus symptoms. The importance of this was immediately recognised and it was adopted by a wide range of our fleet customers.”
