About the App
A visual “circle check” or pre-operational inspection of a truck prior to every use will reduce the chance of equipment being operated in an unsafe condition. This makes it easier to spot and deal with maintenance issues early before they turn into a problem causing downtime, equipment damage or expensive repairs. Unsafe machinery can also cause injury to the operator or other workers and damage to facilities or product. This pre-operational truck inspection app provides a quick and easy method of keeping detailed logs of all truck inspections. Allow all drivers to perform their inspections before operation and sync the inspections to the cloud, auditable at anytime by management from anywhere.
