FORS launches Fleet Management System (FMS) mobile app

The FORS FMS Mobile app is now available for iOS and Android compatible devices, provided by one of the leading UK fleet management software specialists, FleetCheck.

The new FORS FMS Mobile app is designed to help streamline vehicle inspection processes, and is free to all FORS FMS paying subscribers. The app allows drivers to directly submit a range of data, including fit-to-drive declarations, input fuel purchases, and report incidents.

The app has the same functionality both in iOS and Android systems, helping FORS members to demonstrate compliance with FORS Bronze, Silver and Gold requirements as set out in the FORS Standard.

The FORS FMS Mobile app includes a daily vehicle walk around checklist which helps members meet requirement the ‘V2 Daily walk around checks’ as set out in the FORS Standard version 5. The app also allows drivers to submit fit-to-drive declarations, upload photographic evidence of any vehicle damage and defects, report incidents and record fuel purchases. Drivers can upload tyre tread and depth information, and collect mileage figures for accurate service, maintenance, and repair schedule management.

Both the FORS FMS Mobile app and FORS FMS are provided by FleetCheck, which was appointed a FORS Affinity Partner in 2018. FORS Affinity Partners can provide a FORS-branded product or service to assist FORS members with legal compliance and/or contractual requirements – all with a primary focus on improving safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager, said: “Daily walk around checks are a fundamental element of modern fleet management, irrespective of fleet size or type, and FORS members rely on accurate reporting and measurement to gain and maintain FORS accreditation. Now the FORS FMS Mobile app is available on both iOS and Android devices, it will help more members accurately record and submit this vital data, without the need for additional paperwork.”
