In a recent notice from the NHVR, Authorised Officers within each jurisdictions will be inspecting heavy-vehicles across the nation in one of the largest ever health checks on mechanical condition to date.

Vehicle Maintenance Module
The Vehicle Maintenance module allows fleet and workshop managers to easily monitor the maintenance and schedules of operating vehicles. It’s simple structure allows you to easily view and create schedules for vehicles, helping you stay on top of compliance obligations and operational requirements.
How does it work?
The combination of the Pre-Trip Checklist app and the Vehicle Maintenance module is powerful. Vehicles are up-and-running faster, ensuring for a more streamlined, safer and compliant operation. But how does this work?
|Driver Declaration||Alerts||Scheduling||Completed Works|
|Prior to starting their trip, the driver simply declares the vehicle’s readiness for duty using the Pre-Trip checklist application on the iFace. This information is then immediately submitted for back-office staff via NextGen.||When a checklist is submitted with a failed answer, an alert is raised notifying subscribed staff. This means maintenance staff are able to spring into action. The alert will display the items failed with the ability to view the entire checklist.||The alert allows the vehicle to be scheduled in for maintenance before it even leaves the depot or upon its return. This allows the workshop staff to plan ahead by ordering parts for the fixes required.||The maintenance crew are able to attend to the vehicle as indicated on the checklist along with any other works required. The vehicle is quickly and easily returned to duty, ensuring the operation is efficient as ever.|
