    Paper based outdated and inefficient process

    Before HVI, SSSAND was using a paper-based inspection & maintenance process, storing hard copies of all inspection forms in boxes. SSSAND had 6 sites each having their own equipment. They had one maintenance manager trying to oversee all the equipment at all 6 sites. The manager would have to go to each location weekly to pick up the paper inspections. This caused an issue with getting work completed in a timely manner.
    This process, at time, presented storage and data collection issues. This caused an issue with getting work completed in a timely manner. This was an issue that needed to be addressed! “HVI allowed us to see the inspections real time at each site.”

    “HVI allowed us to see the inspections real time at each site.”
    - Alvin Todd , Environmental Health & Safety Manager


    A streamlined inspections solution

    SSSAND was looking for a equipment maintenance software solution that offered electronic vehicle inspection forms and real-time notification with ability to track their equipment’s. The company wanted a centralized, digital tool it could use to pull equipment-related reports. This led the company to HVI.

    “This app allowed us to save multiple hours a week tracking equipment. This app also simplified routine maintenance schedules.”
    - Alvin Todd , Environmental Health & Safety Manager


    HVI has helped SSSAND reduce equipment downtime and save time. On average they were able to free up about 20 hours a week for their Maintenance Manager . Maintenance managers and operators can now clearly see which equipment is having issue and need maintenance.


    Since moving from an antiquated paper-based fleet process to mobile-based HVI, the management team has streamlined the process. Instead of sending a lengthy email, updating a log book description or having a conversation to give an update on equipment status, it simply takes management a few clicks.

    “It was very easy to use. The ability to set up our own inspections was also a huge plus”
    - Alvin Todd , Environmental Health & Safety Manager


    The management staff has the HVI Dashboard up the entire day to monitor the status of fleet vehicles. Drivers use it at least twice a day to complete pre- and post-trip inspections and log into systems like their GPS tracking software, which is connected to HVI. When the company recently opened a new location, HVI was rolled out as part of their operations from day one.
