A time-saving app to help with fleet safety compliance
Daily fleet inspections are an essential activity for commercial fleets and considered best practice for vehicle safety.
They are also essential for compliance with industry regulations such as DVIR checks for commercial fleets, in accordance with the FMCSA.
In addition, regular fleet inspections help you spot defects that could be dangerous and expensive, before an accident occurs. Ultimately, carrying out regular fleet checks saves you time and money, by enabling a fast response to any issues that arise.
Digital capture of vehicle safety inspections
Our app, Quartix Check, makes it easy for drivers to do vehicle checks. They can use either a default or custom vehicle checklist.
With a Quartix Check subscription, your drivers can download the app for free from the Apple and Google Play stores. It includes default templates, such as a daily van, car, or truck inspections. There is also a vehicle defect recording option, with photo upload capabilities. Your driver can record all the information needed with just a few clicks and swipes on their device.

What kind of vehicle walk around checks are needed?
This will depend on the type of vehicle and whether the vehicle carries people or goods, the weight and nature of those goods. With the Quartix Check app , you can customize the types of checks required for your fleet.
The default list of vehicle checks cover:
- Foot brake
- Hand brake
- Dashboard warning lights
- Wing mirrors
Many additional fleet checks are included in the Quartix Check app, and these can be customized to suit the specific vehicle safety inspection needs of your fleet.
Drivers reporting incidents and accidents
In addition to the daily driver walk-around check, drivers can capture details in the event of an incident via the Quartix Check app.
Whether that involves a damaged wing mirror that happened while the vehicle was parked, a collision or other safety incidents, drivers can capture this by uploading a photo, with the time, location and description of the incident.
Drivers can also capture names and details of other drivers, if anyone else was involved.
