Fleet briefs: Latest from Rivus, Mediafleet, Crown Couriers and SWDev

Rivus launches new Vehicle Check app

Rivus Fleet Solutions has unveiled a new Vehicle Check App, to enable control over vehicle safety and compliance for customers.

The new app links data from walk-around vehicle checks with a portal where data collected can be analysed for better decision making, says Rivus.

Access to the portal can be set-up for anyone in the business and the app can be used on any device.

Stephen Denton, chief technology and information officer at Rivus Fleet Solutions, said: “Our application is designed to automate the legacy process of manual defect reporting, and provide the driver with a simple, easy-to-use app.”

Mediafleet launches VanAd service

Mediafleet has launched VanAd, a new service that allows advertising campaigns on light commercial vehicles (LCVs) to be changed regularly.

When the van livery design is first created for a customer, areas for replaceable graphics are defined, says Mediafleet.

When the customer wants to make a change, the fitting is carried out by a nationwide network of fitters to agreed timings

Mediafleet says the materials used allow for rapid installation and if no current campaign is needed, the space can be used for normal branding.

Crown Couriers launch recruitment drive

Crown Couriers is launching a nationwide campaign to recruit 400 self-employed drivers, to support an expected peak across the parcel and courier sector.

The initial demand is to support seasonality but providing long-term work and continuing to grow its fleet is a high priority, says Crown Couriers.

Tim Seagers, managing director of Crown Couriers, said: “Our core focus over the coming weeks and foreseeable future is to ensure we have resource in place to fulfil time-critical deliveries, and provide support where it’s needed most.”

SwDev launch new Dart app

SwDev have launched Dart, a new fleet management app suited to SMEs, that does not require hardware to be fitted to vehicles.

Dart, which is available on a free trial, has been designed to help companies manage jobs, optimise routes for drivers and track their workforce in real time.

Steve Willmoth, technical lead at SwDev, said: "We eliminate all of this by giving companies access to an extremely powerful system, with lots of functionality and features, that is all managed through a simple app on your phone/laptop.”
