Cadec Global, which provides enterprise-class fleet management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Innovative Software Engineering (ISE) to deliver integrated electronic DVIR (eDVIR) capabilities in its flagship PowerVue fleet management software. eDVIRs allow PowerVue users to go completely paperless for inspection reports.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires that every truck driver prepare a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) at the completion of each day’s work and then submit those reports to the motor carrier upon his/her return to the home terminal. The objective is for drivers to flag potential safety and maintenance issues so they can be addressed before the next driving shift. Traditionally, DVIRs are prepared using paper forms, and the information is then manually entered into vehicle maintenance systems by clerks.
Moving to electronic DVIRs (eDVIRs) not only helps save paper, but also saves time for both drivers and administrators and helps eliminate errors that occur when people transcribe written notes.
