App uses voice recognition to record maintenance issues

by Today's Trucking

The MIRNote app from DataDis lets users harness the power of voice recognition when reporting problems with a piece of equipment.

Information collected through the app is shared with the company’s MIR-RT fleet maintenance software.

Once a note is sent to the shop, a fleet manager receives a real-time alert outlining details about the issue, supporting planning efforts. The note will also be automatically connected to the file associated with the equipment, offering full traceability throughout the maintenance process.

The voice commands even make it possible to take the notes without touching a smartphone. Simply say the unit number and describe the issue.

The notes can be further enhanced by attaching a photo, video, or audio recording, ensuring that issues are described in a clear and understandable way, eliminating any ambiguity or errors that might be associated with hand-scratched documents.
