Distinctive Systems Launches Free Driver Walk-around Check App
Distinctive Systems is pleased to announce the release of a free Walk-around Check Mobile App for users of our Coach Manager private hire and contract booking system, Tour Booking System and Vehicle Maintenance System.
The mobile app works either in conjunction with new core functionality incorporated into VMS, or, for users who don’t have VMS, in conjunction with a new standalone application called the VMS Walk-around Check Edition.
Users of Coach Manager and TBS can download a free copy of the VMS Walk-around Check Edition. Just like the new functionality incorporated into VMS itself, the standalone version complies with all statutory walk-around check and defect reporting requirements. It also includes everything necessary for the setup and ongoing management of all associated vehicles and drivers.
The new mobile app makes it easier than ever to ensure drivers are complying with their statutory duty to carry out a daily walk-around check and report any defects found. It guides the driver through the complete process for performing the walk-around check. Against each item to be checked the driver has to either touch a green button to say it is OK, or touch a red one to report a defect. When a defect is found the driver can choose from a list of predefined common defects, or enter a free type description. Up to four supporting photographs can also be included for each defect. The walk-around check can’t be submitted until every check has been completed.

Coach Manager integrates with LICENCECHECK
Users of Coach Manager previously relied on a manual, paper-based document check but, with the abolition of the paper counterpart, operators needed a new approach to ensure legal compliance and reduction of risk for corporate liability in the event of an accident.
This new major enhancement offers operators the ability to retrieve and store full driver’s licence details directly into Coach Manager including contact details, category information, restriction codes, current endorsements and whether their licence or vocational entitlement is currently valid or has expired. Operators can elect to either manually retrieve the licence details for an individual or group of individuals, or have Coach Manager automatically retrieve licence information on regular basis using a sophisticated scheduling system.
This update also sees further improvements made to the existing driver licence warning checks within the allocations and scheduling screens to ensure that the operations teams are not allocating a driver to a vehicle they are not entitled to drive.
