One of the UK´s leading service providers Amey
have provided their drivers with the CheckedSafe app.
The compliance app has been installed on smartphones and tablets in order to carry out daily walk around checks across 2,500 commercial vehicles, replacing the previous method of recording the checks on paper which was implemented in 1995. In order to ensure that the most effective app was chosen, Amey carried out specific tests with seven other apps, with CheckedSafe coming out as the most reliable choice. As well as being more cost- effective, this update means that checks can be monitored in real time
and all of the detailed results will be stored in a secure database
which is easily accessible.
Tom Lawless, Amey's Fleet and Plant Director, feels positive about the change, commenting “Early adoption of this new application demonstrates Amey’s commitment to investing in new technology which supports our strategic objectives of improving our overall vehicle compliance and health and safety performance. We are delighted to be working with CheckedSafe and are confident that we are partnering with an organisation who understand our needs.”
Darran Harris, Director of CheckedSafe, added,
"We are especially pleased to have won this contract with Amey - a leading name in the engineering sector and a company with an extremely diverse fleet."
