Freeway launches range of fleet maintenance apps 04 November 2016

Freeway chose Euro Bus Expo (1—3 November, NEC, Birmingham) to launch a range of fleet maintenance smartphone apps that include support for engineer inspections, defect recording, electronic job cards and driver walk-around checks.

The apps run on any mobile device, including smartphones and tablets, and now form part of the Freeway enterprise fleet management system.

Freeway’s fleet maintenance software has been developed with bus and coach operators, including Tower Transit, Abellio, Reading Buses and CT Plus.

"Our new apps are not conventional mobile apps, but are designed to work as a seamless and integral part of the central fleet management system,” exlains Patrick Tandy, managing director of Freeway.

“As data is entered into a device, it instantly updates the Freeway system for actions such as ordering a part and scheduling work,” he continues.

“In effect, we are taking Freeway mobile so more can be done in the workplace, whether it be on site, off site, in the workshop or in the yard.”

And he adds that mobile working eliminates unnecessary paperwork, improving efficiency, productivity and accuracy.

“The mobile inspections can be carried out at any location, so no vehicle down-time is required,2 he explains.

“Also, if any critical defects are discovered, there is instant notification to operations, engineering and stores so that any impact on operations can be dealt with,” says Tandy.
