FleetCheck’s vehicle inspection app has been updated with language support for non-native speaking fleet drivers as part of a range of revisions.
First launched at CV Show 2017, the app is being relaunched in its latest guise at this year’s event to showcase its latest features. These include language support for non-native speaking fleet drivers, with Polish, Latvian, Czech and Spanish among the first languages to be made available.
Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, explained: “There are many very good drivers now working in fleet, especially the commercial vehicle sector, who were born in places such as Poland.
“These people often tend to have workable day-to-day English skills but are sometimes uncomfortable with being asked to make legally required, technical safety checks using documentation or software that doesn’t support their first language.
“The language options that have been added in the new version of the app helps to overcome this problem by allowing people to make the checks using their smartphone in their native language. It is a practical solution.”
Alongside the new multi-language feature, key enhancements include a fit-to-drive declaration, enhanced damage, defect and collision reporting and shift recording.
It now also features an interface that 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.
