ORIX New Zealand’s Product Manager, Emma Saxon, was thrilled to announce the launch of the company’s innovative vehicle inspection function for DriverHQ, a mobile app that serves as a comprehensive platform for managing fleets.

ORIX’s market-first, in-app subscription service, DriverHQ Vehicle Inspections, is a game changer when it comes to managing a fleet of vehicles.‍“DriverHQ Vehicle Inspections is an ideal tool for conducting vehicle audits and compliance checks. It can even be used as a vehicle handover tool for driver or cost centre changes,” explains Emma. “The best part is that it comes with an unlimited number of inspections and can be added to any lease or managed contracts, which gives you visibility over any owned vehicles as well.”

The vehicle inspection service is seamlessly integrated into ORIX’s mobile driver app DriverHQ and is a simple yet powerful tool that guides drivers through a series of questions and prompts to identify damage or compliance issues within your fleet. In instances where damage has occurred, drivers can easily capture and upload images as well as assessing the damage against ORIX’s Fair Wear & Tear Policy ensuring a fair and accurate assessment of the vehicle’s condition.

”By conducting regular inspections and recording the results, fleet managers can identify any issues early on and take proactive measures to address them,” says Emma. “This not only helps to monitor the fleet but also contributes to better cost management by minimizing unexpected repairs at lease-end.”

All inspection data is captured and stored in ORIX’s management system for a comprehensive audit trail, which, alongside maintenance and accident records, gives a complete view of the vehicle’s history and condition.

In addition to the benefits for fleet managers, Emma highlights the additional value that DriverHQ Vehicle Inspections add by increasing driver awareness as they are guided through the inspection process. “Drivers are prompted to check for specific issues, which helps them become more aware of the condition of their vehicles.”

Gone are the days of cumbersome paper inspection forms. Streamline the process and gain full visibility over your fleet with ORIX New Zealand’s Vehicle Inspections on DriverHQ!
