Smartcheck – Driver Vehicle Safety Check
Around 85% of roadside prohibitions due to roadworthiness could have been avoided if an effective walk-around vehicle check had been conducted.
SmartCheck, Descartes Mobile Driver Vehicle Safety Check (DVSC) is a configurable, cloud-based, enterprise-class solution for assuring compliance with walk-around driver vehicle safety checks required in the United Kingdom by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
SmartCheck replaces the traditional paper-based book used to record walk-around checks and gives transport operators confidence that checks are conducted effectively. The data from any check is captured in real-time without the errors and delays of rekeying data from forms when they are eventually returned to the depot. Any issues recorded can be dealt with in a timely fashion.
SmartCheck provides a complete auditable record of checks, any defects and corrective actions. As with all Descartes SmartCompliance solutions it comes with powerful reporting to turn vehicle check data into useful management information to maintain a compliant transport operation.
DVSC guides commercial drivers to perform essential safety checks on vehicles and equipment used on public roads and ensures the checks are carried out by recording when the check took place, the GPS location and duration of the check.
- Commercial drivers to perform safety checks of vehicles and other transportation assets using Android smartphones and industrial handheld computers
- Transport Managers to see the status of all vehicles in the fleet in real time and track the history of safety checks and repairs using a web browser
- Fleet Mechanics to log repairs and to set the safety status of vehicles in the fleet using a web browser
- Transport operators to generate electronic compliance reports for the DVSA and generate internal reports of defects and repairs.
DVSC enables transport operators of all sizes to capture walk-around vehicle check results in real time. With reliable data and management information available operators can demonstrate their compliance and use the information to focus on any problem areas of non-compliance that could result in expensive fines or loss of the operators’ licence.
SmartCheck, Mobile Driver Vehicle Safety Check (DVSC) is part of the Descartes Mobile family which includes applications for improving operational efficiency of fleets. This includes Proof of Delivery plus routing and delivery schedules.
