Qualcomm Incorporated, a leading provider of integrated wireless systems, applications and services to transportation and logistics companies, today announced the commercial availability schedule for the Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) application. The VIR application provides fleets with a simple, cost-effective and closed-loop process for completing driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs). The application will be available on Qualcomm’s Mobile Computing Platform 110 and 200 in the fourth quarter of 2011, on the MCP100 in the first quarter of 2012 and on the MCP50 when this platform is commercially launched.

Epes Transport System, Inc., a truckload van carrier based in Greensboro, North Carolina and a Qualcomm customer since 1993, participated in the successful beta testing of the VIR application.

“Based on our beta testing experience with the VIR application, we believe this application will help us decrease operational costs, improve the accuracy of our vehicle inspection reports and focus our efforts on the critical inspection elements and requirements identified by the FMCSA,” noted Don Zielinksi, manager of Equipment for Epes Transport System, Inc. “Our drivers really appreciated how the VIR application saved them time and effort, and we are excited about rolling out the application to our entire fleet of more than 800 trucks in the coming months.”

The VIR application helps transportation companies decrease costs by eliminating the need to purchase and process paper DVIRs. By automating the vehicle inspection process with simple prompts and error detection, fleets can reduce mistakes, ensure complete reports and more efficiently manage the defect resolution process. It can help fleets ensure that inspection reports and necessary maintenance are completed in a timely manner through easy-to-use reporting tools that indicate units that have not recorded a vehicle inspection report in the past 24 hours and vehicles with unresolved reported defects. The application also can integrate with other previously installed third-party software packages. For example, VIR functionality integrates with TMW’s Asset Maintenance Software - TMT Fleet Maintenance (and other popular vehicle maintenance packages) to enable additional automation for managing repair efforts.

“The VIR application is another key application we’ve developed to help our customers improve the safety and compliance of their fleet,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “Our commitment to helping fleets operate safely and comply with government regulations remains strong.”

The VIR application sends alerts when defects are identified in vehicle inspection reports, as well as records feedback and remediation history on reports for previously identified defects. The application produces even more pinpointed accuracy by providing separate inspection forms for trailers and vehicles. Each inspection report includes information on relevant time, location, driver and vehicle data, and the application records vehicle inspection report history for 90 days. It also allows fleets to control user access and editing capabilities for inspection reports, as well as provides search, edit, data exporting and printing capabilities. Drivers can either access the VIR application through Qualcomm’s Hours of Service (QHOS) application or as a stand-alone application.
