How Did CheckedSafe Help?

CheckedSafe digital solution delivers more effective compliance as it enables Transport Managers to view greater detail about vehicle check completions and identified defects to manage them through to completion more effectively.

It also enables trend reporting to quickly identify repeat issues to assist with preventative measures. This directly aligns with Amey’s Target Zero strategy and Zero Code message.

It also allows managers who are working remotely to immediately view and rectify any non-conformities in relation to vehicle checks which improves compliance.

Cost Savings

There is a clear cost saving to the business as a result of implementing digital processes. In the simplest form, the cost of the application per vehicle/driver per month is cheaper than the paper book and therefore realises an absolute saving immediately.

By attributing a cost to the efficiencies gained by utilising the vehicle check App as an example, we estimate our potential savings to be over £360k per annum.

Other CheckedSafe Benefits:

  • Engages with maintenance providers, reducing downtime as it enables them to prepare replacement parts more quickly
  • Prevents delay in operatives leaving the site, having to queue for countersignatures
  • Reduces general administration

Julie Davies-Group Fleet and Plant Compliance Manager:

Amey initially carried out a feasibility study into managing such checks digitally. It identified eight companies as possible solution providers, and after a series of rigorous tests, CheckedSafe was chosen as the preferred supplier.

Among other key features such as its ease of use, flexibility and accuracy, the Directors of CheckedSafe’s knowledge of the industry and in-depth knowledge of compliance issues meant that CheckedSafe fit the bill perfectly.”

Undertaking defect reporting is always a hot topic with the Traffic Commissioner and the DVSA., I believe this ticks the right boxes."
