An Ultimate Guide to Fleet Maintenance With Whip Around

A first-class fleet maintenance operation is the only way to ensure that your fleet will continue to reliably drive the profits home. Fleet managers who resist the crucial digital transformation for fleet operations and maintenance can be sure that their competitors have already deployed it in today's era of smart fleet management. That's where Whip Around comes in. 

Enhancing Safety With Whip Around in the Oil, Gas, and Mining Industries

When an enterprise is built on liberating difficult-to-access natural resources there is no getting around the fact that those precious resources must be taken where they are found. Operations managers in the oil, gas, and mining industries frequently face the unique challenges of remote site locations, extended supply chains, and the constant pressure of efficient productivity in a high-cost, high-risk business environment. Whip Around provides the digital tools to help oil, gas, and mining companies meet these challenges by combining the versatility of the cloud with the convenience of your workforce's smartphones.

Electronic DVIR Minimum Requirements

Motor carriers and other fleet owners are obligated under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) Ruling 396.11 regarding vehicle inspections, maintenance, and repairs. Motor carriers and fleet owners are required to systematically inspect, repair, and maintain all motor vehicles and inter-modal equipment under its control.

As part of this ruling, Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) are a requirement for commercial vehicle drivers. In the past, DVIRs were filled out by hand at the beginning and end of each driving day. Today's electronic DVIR technology eliminates the tedious hand-work while still achieving compliance.

Fleet Compliance: Types of Businesses That Will Benefit From Whip Around

Most business owners do not realize that failure to properly maintain and repair company vehicles is a silent killer for profits. Not only do improperly maintained vehicles pose an unwanted safety hazard to your drivers, but can cost you an exorbitant amount of money. Vehicles which are out of commission for repair reduces the overall efficiency and productivity of your team. This is less product you are able to deliver and a fewer number of services you can offer. 

Failure to keep your company's fleet in compliance can result in fines, penalties, and costly downtime until your business can meet fleet compliance.
