New vehicle check app launches

Radius Payment Solutions has launched a free vehicle check app at the CV Show.

The app enables automated, paperless reports which can be reviewed in real time.

Integrated with the company’s Velocity online vehicle management portal and its Kinesis telematics system, the app streamlines the checking process for businesses by enabling automated, paperless reports which can be reviewed by fleet managers in real time.

Fleet managers can set up tailored automated questions for drivers to process before getting behind the wheel. For any areas that are rejected by the driver, such as a faulty brake light, the driver is able to upload an image through the app as evidence. On completion, checks can be submitted and processed and any issues generate an alert, enabling fleet managers to check live reports on individual vehicles.

Chief executive Bill Holmes said: “This technology will ensure checks are made on vehicles, making sure they are running without fault and meeting all legal requirements. In addition to this, the tool is completely free and should cut costs to businesses by reducing down-time and roadside breakdowns.

“Built into our web-based system, Velocity, fleet managers can now rest assured their drivers are carrying out the necessary checks in real time, making the administration processes easier, as well as contributing to safer roads in the UK.”

The Vehicle Checker app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or via Google Play.
