Chevin app allows on-the-move data gathering

July 24, 2013

A new app from Chevin Fleet Solutions enables data gathering while on the move, the company said. FleetWave Mobile is designed to be used in conjunction with the company’s well-established FleetWave fleet management system and will work on any Android or mobile Windows smartphones and tablets.

An Apple iOS version is in development.

The FleetWave Mobile app will be adapted to the individual needs of each fleet, Chevin said, and can gather almost any kind of fleet or operational information using manual input, bar codes, QR codes or pictures. FleetWave Mobile does not have to be online to capture data – information can be stored and then uploaded whenever a connection is regained.

“Chevin’s approach with the development of FleetWave Mobile is to make our enterprise fleet management information system as flexible as possible, allowing us to sit with each of our fleet users and help them maximize productivity, remove data input bottlenecks and eliminate error prone re-keying of information,” said Ron Katz, senior vice president of North American sales. “FleetWave Mobile can be configured to work in almost any fleet situation. For example, a technician inspecting a piece of equipment or a vehicle for compliance can use an inspection form generated within the app, a driver of a delivery vehicle needing to capture a signature confirming a delivery has been made, or even a field worker that needs to record complex information regarding a service call can be managed using FleetWave Mobile.”
