Telematics Providers Focus on New Mobile Apps

| February 8, 2018

Chevin Fleet Solutions

As the telematics market heats up, players of all sizes are focusing on mobile applications.

Consider: Chevin Fleet Solutions, a leading global provider of fleet management software, has unveiled its new data collection app, FleetWave Forms, which claims to deliver an  “advanced level of code-free customization for more than just fleet.”

Forms, Chevin Fleet Solutions notes, “is a flexible tool allows users to custom-build data collection forms. This app can then be used to replace any manual or paper-based data collection form using mobile phones or tablets – and can even be accessed while offline, facilitating automatic uploads into FleetWave as soon as an internet connection becomes available.”

Designed with drag-and-drop tools for ease of use, Chevin’s new form building software allows system administrators to create customized data collection tasks using features such as dropdowns questions; free text entry; date/time selection; decimals, geolocation stamping, signature capture, barcoding, photos and more.

The form creator can be used to specify who can access each form based on a variety of factors such as the drivers name, vehicle type, job/role, department and more. Workers can then simply log-in to view their forms, collect information and submit data back into FleetWave using an iOS or Android device.

 

 

Users can, for example, share and receive business-critical information such as vehicle inspections; mobile technician worksheets; driver trip records; business expenses; accident reports; safety and risk assessments; sales transactions; proof of delivery and much, much more.

 

Approaches by such offerings as FleetWave Forms eliminate risks and inefficiencies associated with manual labor-intensive data entry; information processing delays; workload duplications; incorrect interpretation; lengthy invoice cycles; missing or incomplete data records and potential loss or damage of paper documents.

 

For those who don’t have time to build custom forms from scratch, typical fleet-related forms will be pre-configured, for immediate use.

 

Ron Katz, Senior Vice President for North American Sales at Chevin, said:

 

“Relying on manually intensive processes can expose an organization to many risks – not to mention the actual cost and resources involved in managing paper – however, FleetWave Forms helps to improve the management of remote workforces, at the same time reducing administrative tasks and increasing productivity.

 

“When compared to manual methods of fleet data collection, FleetWave Forms can be up to 92% more cost-effective”.
