Arrow Stage Lines, a pioneer when moving driver logs into a paperless environment, has advanced one step further into the digital realm. The company has moved the DVIR, Driver Vehicle Inspection Report, process onto an electronic platform. The new process, EVIR, Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report, captures all the necessary data while also collecting a wealth of other information. Arrow Stage Lines instituted the change on Sept. 1, 2015.
“Arrow Stage Lines has been pushing for a paperless DVIR solution that would fit our company and our needs for the future of the business,” said Arrow Stage Lines COO Luke Busskohl.
Arrow Stage Lines found that solution with Zonar solutions. Zonar, a fleet management software based in Seattle, WA has been developing robust data tracking software solutions since 2001.
“Technology can sometimes be a one-shoe-fits-all type approach,” said Arrow Stage Lines Director of Maintenance, Gene Wordekemper. “Finding the right solution for the company’s needs was crucial to the success of moving our DVIR process off paper.”
Arrow Stage Lines has always embraced the digital landscape and has aimed to set the pace inside the industry by establishing new trends, leveraging technology and dreaming of new ways to deliver a better product to the customer.
“Moving our DVIR process to a paperless solution is a natural step for us,” said Luke. “We believe this will help us keep pace with the changing business landscape.”
Aside from DVIR practices going paperless, the company is able to gain valuable BI from the new system. Learning more about operator habits, coach functions and more.
“We are excited to take that data and making informed decisions to positively impact the experience of our customers and our performance,” said Luke.
Arrow Stage Lines’ DVIR process has been paperless for a month to date. The new system has proved to be highly effective and efficient for the company’s daily operations.
