Streamline Inspection Reports

Shaw Tracking has launched the Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) application. It provides a simple closed-loop process for completing vehicle and trailer inspection reports while improving driver safety, productivity, and the bottom line.

VIR is now available through the Mobile Computing Platform for streamlined access to vehicle inspection data and enhanced recording, proactively managing truck maintenance to prevent expensive breakdowns on the road. Said to be driver-friendly, the application is also geared to simplify the defect-resolution process through simple prompts and error-detection logic. Completed inspection reports are directly submitted to the maintenance team and will notify drivers when submitted VIRs are updated and closed by the maintenance department.

VIR also pinpoints units that have not recorded a vehicle inspection report and can provide a comprehensive remediation history. Critical inspection elements are captured in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requirements avoiding out-of-service violations which affect CSA scores.

With its detailed reporting, stamped with time, location, driver, and vehicle data, VIR is also said to enhance the decision-making process by quickly identifying vehicles with reported issues and unresolved defects.
