FleetCheck app hits two million milestone

A FleetCheck app designed to increase fleet safety for cars, vans, HGVs, buses and coaches has clocked up two million vehicle inspections.

Introduced in 2017, the Vehicle Inspection App allows drivers and fleet managers to schedule, carry out, confirm, follow up and audit all kinds of legally required inspections from daily walk-arounds to weekly or monthly checks.

It has been continually enhanced, notably to incorporate a range of advanced features 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.

An interface also allows users to access tyre pressure data for a wide range of cars and vans to ensure that drivers undertaking checks can easily check the correct level for their vehicle.

Peter Golding, Managing Director at FleetCheck, said, “Immediately from launch, the app found an important niche for organisations that needed a fast, accurate, DVSA-compliant digital safety check tool.

“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 Vehicle Inspection App also integrates with FleetCheck’s fleet management software, which is already in use by more than 1,000 customers operating in excess of 100,000 vehicles, providing a complete vehicle safety solution.

Peter added, “There are now about 78,000 checks every week being undertaken using the app and it’s notable that, while it took more than two years to reach the one million milestones, it has only taken a further six months to hit two million.

“It is no exaggeration to say that it is now one of the most widespread and important safety tools being used across the whole fleet sector — and we’re proud of that achievement.”
