ProVision to launch accident reporting and vehicle check app
Available as a standalone product or in conjunction with ProVision’s Cloud Connected Plan for its camera technology, the app is intended to help fleets with data collection by helping drivers to complete vehicle checks digitally and instantly relay to them to the fleet manager, removing the need for paper-based checks.
Checks can be customised to meet specific fleet requirements, including providing fleet managers with automatic notification if one of their vehicles does not meet mandatory checks, such as broken indicators. This includes the ability to fit in with requirements from accreditation schemes such as FORS (the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme), and the app can also be configured to perform multiple checks over the course of a driver’s journey. The information can be accessed anytime and anywhere thanks to cloud-based connectivity.
The app also provides an accident reporting section that walks the driver through all the critical information that needs to be recorded using a step by step process. The user can store photos and video, input text and descriptions and tag reports with a time and date stamp. Drivers can also record third-party witness and police information, and pinpoint specific footage recorded by the in-vehicle cameras.
Once the information has been logged, it can be uploaded and stored in ProVision’s cloud-based Command Centre, or even forwarded to insurance companies to speed up the process of managing a claim.
Available for both iOS and Android, the app further reinforces the company’s focus on supporting fleets with risk and compliance tracking and will be available for demonstration at ProVision’s stand at the CV Show.
The app is expected to be available as part of an initial controlled release to the market in early May.
