FleetCheck’s new multilingual version of Vehicle Inspection App is fluent in safety

A ‘completely new’ version of FleetCheck’s Vehicle Inspection App – the original of which is used to carry out more than 3,000 vehicle checks in the UK every day – is being launched next month at the UK Commercial Vehicle Show 2019.

Designed for cars, vans, HGVs (heavy goods vehicles), buses and coaches, FleetCheck’s Vehicle Inspection App includes a range of key enhancements such as support for languages commonly used among UK fleet drivers, a fit-to-drive declaration, enhanced damage, defect and collision reporting and shift recording.

The new version of the app understands Polish, Latvian, Czech and Spanish, with more languages coming on stream in the near future. It also features a unique interface that allows users to access tyre pressure data for a wide range of cars and vans allowing drivers to easily check the correct level for their vehicle.

Designed for cars and commercial vehicles of all kinds, the Vehicle Inspection App creates the means to schedule, carry out, confirm, follow-up and audit all kinds of inspections from daily walkarounds to formal weekly or monthly checks.

It delivers a completely paper-free checking process, instant visibility of missed checks, uploading of relevant photos from drivers, bespoke checking for specialist equipment and automated mileage collection to enable accurate forward maintenance planning.

“The app gives fleets a fast, accurate, DVSA-compliant digital safety check tool and we identified several key areas for enhancements and developed a completely new version,” said Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck.

“The app is probably the most robust, simple-to-use and effective electronic method of replacing an old-school manual vehicle safety process available today,” 

“We have spent a long time ensuring that it works highly effectively in real world fleet situations where traditional safety processes can easily become a little ragged. The app creates an infrastructure that minimises the chances of errors occurring.”

The Vehicle Inspection App also integrates with FleetCheck’s fleet management software, which is already in use by more than 800 customers operating 80,000 vehicles, providing a complete vehicle safety solution.
