Electronic DVIR: Why Not Paper?
Paper DVIR reports are faulty – they can easily be lost, incomplete, and rushed through (aka, pencil whipped). This leads to several issues, namely:
- The inability to retain proper data to be DOT compliant when inspectors come around
- Breakdowns of vehicles without an idea of when or how the issue came about
- And the possibility faults are missed and mechanics are not notified of them in time, or at all.
Together this can lead to safety, liability, and efficiency issues.
Now with Routeware’s Electronic DVIR, drivers can more easily record all required vehicle and safety checks during pre and post-trip inspections, ensuring DOT compliance. Meanwhile, mechanics get the oversight they need while eliminating one of the last pieces of paper in the cab.
