PODFather’s vehicle check functionality includes:

Start of day checks

Vehicle checks can be enforced for drivers to complete before they can start their jobs each day.

Defect recording

Any defects are logged by the driver and sent instantly to your transport manager to review along with photos of the recorded defects.

Permanent archive

All vehicle check information is archived in your PODFather account. Defect tags make it easy to filter and sort information as and when required.

Roadside inspections

All vehicle checks can be retrieved electronically by the driver in case they are stopped for a roadside inspection and need to produce evidence of daily defect inspections being carried out.

Case Study: Day Aggregates

Day Aggregates, the leading supplier of bagged aggregates and specialist materials to builders’ merchants and the construction companies, relies on PODFather’s vehicle check system to keep track of fleet compliance.  With a fleet of 190 vehicles delivering over 4 million tonnes of aggregate to locations across the South of England, Day Aggregates saw an opportunity to use technology to eradicate paper tickets from its vehicle check process.  Pre PODFather, transport teams at each of the company’s twenty depots had to collect and scan over 1,000 paper-based checks each week.  Now, drivers have PODFather’s easy to use smartphone app to capture vehicle check information which is uploaded back to the transport and maintenance teams in real time.   PODFather’s well known reputation within the construction industry made it the obvious choice for Day Aggregates. Read the full Day Aggregates story.

Before PODFather our vehicle check process was totally paper based but now our vehicle compliance checks are paper free which is better for us as a business and better for the environment.

What our clients say

We added a vehicle check before drivers leave our depot which also significantly reduces the amount of paperwork they need to handle. Therefore, delivery times/windows are re-calculated when the driver is ready to leave thus ensuring the ‘window’ to the customers is as accurate as possible.
