The need for digital Inspection Solution
Before having a solution like HVI, Kal Tire, Fort St John Kal branch managed vehicle inspection using spreadsheets, which was unorganized and difficult to track. One of the company’s biggest challenges was that to keep forms clean & legible. Also every time they that has to make sure that new inspection forms are available with changes. Due to this, it needed to implement a capable digital inspection platform that resonates with modern times.
“App creates the inspections automatically without the worry of quantity of paper forms remaining.”

Help with Auditing
As per Robert “During an in house safety audit, after using the app for many months, the auditor was very pleased with the inspections. Not to mention we could show the auditor the inspections on virtually any work station, or app on operators’ devices, in the building. This eliminated the need to track down the binders, break the seal of dust, and hope the reports were neat and legible.”
