But above all the testing walk around the vehicle helps to detect defects or breakdown potential, even before the wheels are rolling. The documentation of the control is often problematic – in many cases paper is still in use.
But meanwhile there are elegant digital solutions available that simplify the entire process for drivers, save paper and make the data available for further processing in the head office.
Some time ago we had already reported about the pre-trip-inspection with regard to the legal regulations here in the Telematics Magazine, and had introduced our module of the same name for our logistics software TISLOG.
Now, with our new app, “Departure Control” (pre-trip-inspection) in the Google Play Store, the digital pre-trip-inspection is available for free and legally safe on every Android-based mobile device.

In just a few steps the driver is intuitively guided through the application. During the inspection, photos of defects and damages can be taken and assigned to the pre-trip-inspection within the app.
