Fleetmatics Partners with CheckedSafe to Offer Customers Daily Compliance Checks via a Digital App
Since 1995, all heavy goods vehicles (HGV) and Public Service Vehicles (PSV) require a daily walk around check prior to service and such checks have been a mandatory in the UK since then. Fleetmatics, a Verizon Company, has partnered with Lancashire based company CheckedSafe, to offer their digital fleet compliance App to current and future customers.
CheckedSafe’s Vehicle compliance App digitises the vehicle defect card by allowing commercial vehicle drivers to complete a DVSA driver daily walk around check from their smart phone. The data is recorded into a central database immediately, enabling the compliance manager to verify that the walkaround check has been done. Historically, all previous checks were paper-based, which is time consuming, costly and unreliable.
“With pressures mounting on fleet managers, it’s vital to create ways that make it easier for drivers to play their role in the safety and compliance process. By partnering with CheckedSafe, our customers for all commercial vehicles will now be able to monitor all daily checks at the click of a button, and will have added insights into where the checks were carried out, how long they took, and what if any defects were identified,” said Guy Fletcher, product manager of Fleetmatics.
Fleetmatics’ partnership with CheckedSafe offers current and future customers an efficient, practical and foolproof solution that is fully compliant to all current regulations. The solution works on smartphones or tablets and can also be integrated into other Internet enabled devices and requires no additional investment.
“With complementary technology solutions and customers, partnering with Fleetmatics is a natural fit for us. We are pleased to have the opportunity to offer Fleetmatics customers our simple and effective solution to eradicate the issue of either non-compliance or partial compliance with the legislation,” said Darran Harris, director at CheckedSafe
