Two new products to be launched by FleetCheck at CV Show 2017

Two new products to be launched by FleetCheck at CV Show 2017

Two key new products were launched by fleet software specialist FleetCheck at this week’s Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC, Birmingham.
 
The first, Policy Manager, is claimed to be an industry-first automated fleet policy writer, designed to guide companies of all sizes, but especially SMEs, through creating a legally compliant and operationally effective framework for their fleets.
 
The second is a Walkaround Check App, which is said to provide a robust way of carrying out essential commercial vehicle safety checks. Designed for HGVs, vans, buses and coaches, it creates the means to schedule, carry out, confirm, follow-up and audit all kinds of inspections from daily walkarounds to formal weekly or monthly checks.
 
Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “Both of these products have been created to meet very definite needs facing today’s commercial vehicle fleets.
 
“In today’s culture of heightened legal awareness, many companies are concerned about their degree of compliance and what would happen if they were faced with an investigation following a road accident. Policy Manager allays these fears with straightforward tools, processes and guidance that will create a complete fleet health and safety solution.
 
“Similarly, the Walkaround Check App is, we believe, probably one of the most robust, simple-to-use and effective electronic methods of replacing an old school manual commercial vehicle safety process available today.
 
“We have spent a long time 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.
 
“Also, we have designed it to be fully compliant with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency safety and maintenance guide, meaning that it will help fleets to meet their legal obligations.”
 
Both new products integrate with FleetCheck’s fleet management software, which is already in use by more than 500 customers operating 50,000 vehicles.
