All heavy vehicle drivers are required to fill in their driver pre-start inspection reports which involved checking over the vehicle they are about to driver prior to start any shift, for any potential faults or safety risks. It is also part of the responsibility of a a heavy vehicle operator to ensure these are completed in an efficient and effective manner as part of their Chain of Responsibility mandate.


Vehicle fleets come in all shapes and sizes and there isn't a single solution for any one fleet. Pre-start checks vary from vehicle to vehicle and that is why Netcorp's solution allows you to centrally control all of these in a single platform. You can customise your layouts, question, pictures, and responses in our telematics platform directly and easily deploy these throughout your fleet with a few clicks of a button.

  • Customise pre-starts per Vehicle Type / Make / Model

  • Built in design wizard to add photos, instruction and pre-emptive responses

  • Take photos of Adhoc Faults and issues throughout the shift (not just at the prestart level)

  • Integrate faults found into 3rd party fleet maintenance systems or manage these faults using Netcorp's own CoR process

  • Set different levels of fault severity to decrease the amount of vehicles being held up over minor or non-safety related issues

  • Ensure full transparency of existing faults on a vehicle by multiple drivers of the same vehicle seeing all currently tagged faults for the vehicle they are signing onto

  • Manage any faults raised during the pre-start process centrally with other staff in the logistics chain

  • Full digital (paperless) process included the storing and archiving of all completed pre-start reports



Managing faults in large fleets can become a cumbersome tasks especially when dealing with LOD contractor drivers whom you still have a CoR (Chain of Responsibility) commitment too. Netcorp's centrally managed fault reporting process allows drivers to raise faults and digitally manage these process through an escalation process based on the pre-determined severity of the fault. If a fault is raised by the driver that has a high severity level and may pose a risk to the vehicle being driven, the vehicle goes through a simple yet effective CoR process and will not allow that vehicle to be used until a supervisor inspects the vehicle. Driving the vehicle with a fault alerts the appropriate members in the CoR process to ensure any risk is avoided.
