Fleet inspection software provider Whip Around has introduced Whip Around Maintain, a feature enabling fleet and asset managers to stay in control of vehicle maintenance and prevent unnecessary repairs and downtime.
The new product feature is available as an added module in the Whip Around platform.
Using unique Optical Character Recognition technology, drivers can take photos of their vehicle’s odometer or engine hours and the app automatically scans photos for the data, syncing it to the Whip Around dashboard for mileage or usage tracking against assets.
Fleet managers can also use Whip Around Maintain to build preventive maintenance schedules based on mileage, engine hours or time intervals, and configure automatic reminders for themselves, mechanics and drivers.
“We worked with our customers in building this logical expansion of our product,” said Tim Boyle, Co-CEO of Whip Around. “Over 70% of our customers were using Whip Around to track mileage and to schedule and action preventative maintenance work for compliance or to support the resale value of assets.”
“We explored the current offerings in the market and saw the opportunity to build a more simple and intuitive feature set that plugs in alongside our current inspection platform,” said Boyle.
