Michigan-based MyCDLapp.com recently updated its software to include a custom question builder. MyCDLapp.com allows small and medium carriers to implement affordable online driver job applications that are mobile-ready and can accept electronic signatures on any device.
“The addition of the custom question feature allows carriers to better adapt the online driver application to their unique business need,” according to the company. “Carriers can now add their own tailored questions to the standard questions already included in the FMCSA-compliant employment application.”
According to the company, an Ohio-based flatbed carrier added several questions focused on experience with tarps and straps. "Most experienced hiring managers know the particular questions that help them to discern better-fit drivers from those that are not as likely to be successful," said Brandon Lawrence, customer service manager at MyCDLapp.com. "In most cases, though, they simply don't have the means to easily incorporate those questions into their screening processes."
Custom questions in MyCDLapp.com can take the form of simple text field questions, multiple choice, or yes/no questions. The company said additional question formats are expected to be added in the near future. The custom question builder utilizes a straightforward interface that requires no coding experience. In addition to the variety of questions offered, users also control the placement of each question within the application. An unlimited number of questions can be added.
"We understand that no two carriers are alike and wanted to offer a simple and affordable way for each of them to address their particular operational nuances early in the hiring process," said Lawrence, "The result will be that those carriers see an improvement in both the quality and quantity of hires using our tools."
