Top 3 Things to Look for When Choosing an Electronic DVIR

With the right electronic DVIR, you can save tremendous amounts of time. 

Selecting a great intuitive DVIR system is crucial to the success of the roll out.   Selecting a great intuitive DVIR system is crucial to the success of the roll out.  

The time spent by commercial drivers conducting an electronic DVIR can add up, since they typically must complete the inspection on a daily basis. Let's take a moment to examine the most important factors to look for when choosing an electronic DVIR.

#1 - The DVIR Platform Must be Intuitive

An electronic DVIR system can only save drivers and managers time if it's user-friendly. Take the time to investigate the system's features and interface fully before committing. Other than a small learning curve in the beginning, use of the DVIR system must be intuitive, even for the non-technologically inclined.

#2 - The Right People Get Information

Information flows need to be configurable and totally customizable. This means that the results of DVIR's will go to the right people up the chain of command in the organization. Whip Around's proprietary teams module makes sharing information between managers and drivers simple.

#3 - The Electronic DVIR Must Be a Standalone System

For the optimal experience, the electronic DVIR needs to be contained within its own standalone system, not as an add-on from a telematics solution. A standalone system will have a more robust feature set and offer more ease-of-use. This not only ensures that the information gathered is accurate, but makes it more likely that drivers and managers will actually use the system.
