Go Digital with Driveroo Digital Vehicle Inspection Checklist

Have you ever found yourself wasting precious time searching through stacks of paper for a vehicle inspection form?  It seems like only yesterday that auto technicians had to pull off their greasy gloves and fill out forms with subjective notations. Shop managers would then need to decipher the notes and would potentially miss important details in paper forms when entering the information in a data system.

But let’s face it — accumulating volumes of paper reports makes it difficult to access and organize critical information, and can even present become a fire hazard in the shop.  That’s why successful auto repair shops are ditching outmoded paper-based reporting in favor of a more sophisticated digital model.

Driveroo’s new Vehicle Inspection mobile application performs a comprehensive, image-based vehicle inspection with no paper necessary.  The app provides an easy checklist for vehicle inspections using Turbographics™ technology, a photo-based system that is engineered for quick and easy use, with a layout of easily recognizable automotive icons. The visual interface helps busy automotive service technicians seamlessly zero in on any suspect areas that require notation during the inspection process without having to sort through threads of written text.

Designed for Clarity

Driveroo’s Digital Vehicle Inspection is leading the trend toward paperless auto service and repair. The Driveroo mobile application is easy to use and designed for clarity of notation and transfer. It provides the options to either access the standard inspection checklist or to use the Ultimate Pre-Purchase Inspection.

The Driveroo app features many attributes that save time and money in the inspection and repair process, including text-to-speech functionality and electronic reports that streamline the repair approval process.  Rather than requiring the customer to come to the shop to approve the service, the shop just sends a text message or emails a report with photos of the damaged parts to the customer. The visual approach gives customers better insight into needed repairs and helps to expedite the approvals,s saving time for both the shop and the customer. The Driveroo app notes the effects of wear and provides the tools to present a clearer picture to the customer, which helps to ensure that preventative maintenance does not lapse, leading to major rebuilds and/or catastrophic failures down the line.

The Driveroo app also allows repair technicians to scan the VIN information instead of typing it in manually.  Graphic icons of damaged parts can be used to help customers understand areas of needed repair. Using customer-centric mobile phone technology boosts confidence in the service recommendations and alleviates stress, which translates into, quicker and easier sales.

For repair shops dealing with a high volume of vehicles, using a digital system also saves costs on paper-based reporting. The typical paper-based log book costs about $50 per vehicle. At 100 log books, shops are paying upwards of $5,000.

Another benefit of the Driveroo digital vehicle inspection checklist is its ability to help repair technicians track clients and the various repair suggestions recommended for their vehicles. When photos of suggested repairs are saved, it can protect save repair shops from the liability of poor workmanship allegations, should they arise down the line.
