Van rental company Northgate has introduced a new vehicle inspection app.

Powered by CheckedSafe, it allows customers to monitor all daily vehicle checks, providing information including where the checks were carried out, how long they took, and what defects, if any, were identified.

The app runs on smartphones or tablets and features customisable templates.

It costs £1 per week per vehicle. A free 45-day trial is available.

Northgate sales and marketing director Neil McCrossan said: “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.”
