The Distinctive Systems Driver Walk-around Check App is a companion app for Distinctive Systems Coach Manager, Tour Booking System (TBS) and Vehicle Maintenance System (VMS) users.

The app makes it easier than ever to ensure drivers are complying with their statutory duty to carry out a daily walk-around check and report any defects found. The app guides the driver through the complete process of performing their walk-around check. Against each item to be checked, the driver has to either touch a green button to say it is OK, or touch a red one to report a defect. When a defect is found the driver can choose from a list of predefined common defects, or enter a free type description. Up to four supporting photographs can also be included for each defect.

- Complies with all statutory walk-around check and defect recording requirements

Good app but needs tweaks

Great tool for drivers, cuts out the pen and paper aspect and eliminates the risk for for walk-around check sheets going missing.

Could do with a settings tab to enable drivers to change their passwords also a bit of a pain having to re-type password every day to login.

Maybe also need to make more of an emphasis on distance.....I've done a few checks using this app and had to go back because I've forgotten to enter odometer reading. Needs to be in your face asking for it!
