FORS members can now use a new Fleet Management System (FMS) Mobile app to streamline vehicle inspection processes.
Developed by FORS Affinity Partner FleetCheck – which also developed the recently launched FORS FMS software – the app is available for iOS and Android compatible devices 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, helping FORS members to demonstrate compliance with FORS Bronze, Silver and Gold requirements as set out in the FORS Standard.
Drivers can use the app to submit daily walk around check information instantly to their fleet department, helping to eliminate paper-based checks, by providing fleets with a robust audit trail of the complete inspection process, including automated inspection scheduling, instant visibility of missed inspections, and bespoke inspection routines for specialist equipment.
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.
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.”
