FleetCheck’s Walkaround Check App is now helping fleets to complete more than 1,000 vehicle safety checks a day less than a year since its launch.

Developed to provide a simple-to-use and effective electronic method to carry out essential commercial vehicle safety checks, the app was launched at last year’s CV Show and is now in use with fleets including Blind Veterans UK, Tructyre, Hyperoptic and London and Quadrant Housing.

Aimed at van, HGV, bus and coach fleets, the app enables businesses to schedule, carry out, confirm, follow-up and audit all kinds of inspections, from daily walkarounds to formal weekly or monthly checks. It provides instant visibility of missed checks, uploading of relevant photos from drivers, bespoke checking for specialist equipment and automated mileage collection.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “The app has proven to be one of our most successful product launches ever, delivering a robust, easy-to-use and effective electronic method of replacing an old school manual commercial vehicle safety check.

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

The Walkaround Check App, which is fully compliant with DVSA safety and maintenance guidelines, integrates with FleetCheck’s fleet management software, which is in use by more than 600 customers, totalling around 60,000 vehicles.
