New, free fleet software launched by FleetCheck


New fleet software has been launched by FleetCheck that can be adopted for free by any business that operates cars and vans.

Called DriverLite, it is based on FleetCheck’s Driver, introduced in 2017 and to date used by 1,053 fleets to carry out more than 20 million vehicle inspections.

Features include free inspection check sheets for an unlimited number of drivers and vehicles, visibility of how long each pre-use inspection takes, missed inspections, instant evidence of damage and defects, a robust audit trail of inspections, mileage collection for SMR schedules, a driver’s toolkit with read receipts, and a multi-language user interface.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “DriverLite contains everything that a fleet needs to ensure they are meeting their fundamental legal requirements when it comes to vehicle inspections. For the many businesses that are still using manual, paper-based systems to carry out these checks, adopting it is something of a no-brainer.

“The impetus for us in offering this product is both ethical and commercial. Every day, we see fleets that are not fulfilling basic safety necessities and this software provides the means for them to dramatically improve their performance in this area. We believe that everybody has the right to be as safe as possible on the road and know that this is a product that can help to reduce accidents and injury in an intuitive and effective manner.

“However, we also hope that it will lead to more fleets upgrading over time to our paid products as they learn the benefits of using our technology. It should be underlined though, that is no pressure to do this, and DriverLite is not in any way restricted. Unlike some free software products, there are no limits on the number of drivers or vehicles registered.”

DriverLite also includes a Driver Toolkit developed in conjunction with National Highways as part of their Driving for Better Business programme, providing safety advice for drivers in areas such as driving licences, road safely, fitness to drive, seasonal driving, restrictions, smarter driving and driving safety.

Peter added: “The core functions of DriverLite will ensure that there are basic risk management processes in place but the Driver Toolkit provides the bones of a genuine safety culture within an organisation. The advice it contains can really help to promote a move towards better driving.”
