Lytx launches DVIR service to improve safety programs, increase efficiency

Lytx Inc. has released a new Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) service for fleets. DVIR solutions are an important component for any maintenance program and can identify existing (and potential) issues with a vehicle. Required documentation for commercial vehicles is also needed to meet government DVIR mandates. For vehicles that do not fall under the mandate, this service can be bundled with one of Lytx’s fleet or safety solutions, allowing customers to benefit from DVIR functionality across their mixed fleets.
Lytx DVIR Service is the next offering that joins Lytx’s suite of fleet management solutions. Using the Lytx Driver App, drivers can conveniently log DVIRs electronically via pre-populated checklists and upload photos and videos to enhance their reports. The provided information can then be shared with mechanics to highlight vehicle malfunctions and used to increase visibility for fleet managers, who can customize vehicle and trailer checklists within their Lytx Account. In addition to having the ability to closely track specific areas of concern, fleet managers can quickly review and resolve DVIRs within their account dashboard.
The company noted that adding Lytx DVIR Service can take advantage of numerous cost savings, such as increased vehicle uptime and less time getting costly repairs. A safe and healthy fleet can also help managers avoid expensive claims costs, maintenance fees, and fines that occur if their vehicles are not safely maintained and DOT compliant.

Lytx DVIR Service is available now to all existing customers through month-to-month plans based on the number of vehicles, with each vehicle being able to support multiple drivers. Lytx does not require customers to purchase ELD service in order to add DVIR. Customers who already own (or choose to add) one of Lytx’s proven solutions can conveniently add DVIR to instantly take advantage of these new tools.
