Northgate launches new app for insight into vehicle checks


Van rental company Northgate has announced the launch of a new Vehicle Inspection App to facilitate and streamline the end to end management of fleet vehicles.
The App allows Northgate customers to monitor all daily vehicle checks, providing added insights into where the checks were carried out, how long they took, and what, if any, defects were identified. The system Powered by CheckedSafe uses existing kit, namely smartphones or tablets, and requires no additional capital investment. 
The App has several bespoke features specifically tailored for Northgate customers, including a free 45-day trial and customisable templates amongst others. Fleets can also go totally paperless using the full document storage suite. Using the app costs only £1 per week per vehicle.

Neil McCrossan, Sales and Marketing Director at Northgate Vehicle Hire says “The introduction of the Northgate Vehicle Inspection App reinforces our commitment to growing Northgate’s product offerings to meet our customers’ needs. By enabling fleets to carry out daily checks on their vehicles digitally, businesses now have access to a product that makes the vehicle hire management process even more insightful and efficient.”
After a series of rigorous tests and customer feedback, CheckedSafe, a leading provider of compliance services for hire vehicles, was selected as Northgate’s preferred supplier, offering a robust and straightforward technical solution that provides the company and its customers with an in-depth knowledge of compliance issues.
