PORTLAND, Ore. — EROAD, a global technology provider of fleet management, electronic tax reporting and ELD compliance solutions for the transportation industry, has introduced EROAD Inspect, an in-vehicle Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) reporting tool.
“Inspect DVIR uses the same EROAD in-vehicle ELD hardware used to ensure Hours of Service compliance to lead drivers through a simple and methodical inspection process,” said Norm Ellis, president EROAD North America.
“Drivers reporting defects on Inspect save time on data entry, and with a three-step certification process tractor and trailer unit defects are resolved more quickly, with fewer errors giving you faster turnaround on repairs.”
“EROAD Inspect gives fleet owners and fleet and safety managers accurate information from drivers, and visibility into the status of defects to ensure compliance with inspection regulations, reduce the complexity of meeting compliance needs and to help focus on improving safety scores and operations,” added Blaine Holt, product manager at EROAD.
Using the EROAD in-vehicle device, Inspect leads the driver through the inspection process to help ensure that a vehicle or trailer is in a safe and optimal condition before and after operation. The DVIR includes several steps:
“EROAD Inspect is a nice feature,” said Dave Domer, safety director at Kirk Trucking Service, a Pennsylvania-based hauler of steel, aluminum, machinery and building materials as well as general commodities. “As an in-vehicle DVIR it makes the driver’s logbook completely paperless and provides us with an effective reporting tool that’s great for tracking if documented defects have been corrected.”
“With Inspect you’ll have confidence that defects are reported, repaired and certified, and that accurate inspection records are stored,” Holt said. “Knowing when a vehicle fails inspection and removing the unknown on what is happening with vehicles provides confidence that vehicles are compliant while on the road. Your drivers will be even more productive behind the wheel rather than spending time on inspection paperwork, and your entire team will be engaged in a safety-first culture that provides a safer environment for drivers and other motorists.”
