As the owner or operator of a transportation-focused business, you are likely counting the days until your company completes the transition from paper DVIR to digital DVIR. From increased efficiency to improved compliance with key regulations, this offers a host of advantages that will help you promote safety and improve your bottom line. However, procedural changes are not always easy for employees, and you may need to take some special measures to ensure a smooth transition to digital DVIR. Below are seven steps to help you prepare your drivers for these new technologies. 

1) Let drivers know how they will benefit from the switch

A seamless transition is best achieved when drivers fully support the change. However, some employees do not respond well to change. In order to ensure the buy-in of your drivers, you need to outline the specific benefits drivers will experience as a result of the change. Here are three of the top benefits that drivers will enjoy when they switch to digital DVIR:

  • Convenience: Drivers can prepare their vehicle inspection reports from their favorite smartphone or mobile device.
  • Speed: Paper reports can be tedious and time-consuming for drivers to complete. Digital DVIR makes the reporting process fast and easy.
