Bulk Group’s fleet of assets includes various types of specialist equipment including JCB, Bobcats and Trommels, as well as Tippers. It had become clear that the standard daily walk around checklists specified by DVSA would not fulfil their operational requirements. With this in mind, they started to look for an electronic defect management system that offered easily customisable checklists. They also wanted to gain visibility of the checks being made, track their assets and improve working efficiency.
In summary, Bulk Group had experienced the following challenges:
- Needed customisable checklists as the standard versions specified by DVSA were unsuitable
- Paper-based methods were open to human error increasing financial risk
- Limited visibility of the checks being made and compliance of the fleet
- Reliant on insecure documentation that could be corrupted
- Manual working methods were creating inefficiencies
- The possibility of lost or spoiled records
Why Bulk Group chose AssetGo:
Bulk Group spent some time evaluating what was available on the market but following a demo of AssetGo quickly realised that this secure cloud-based fleet and asset management system was right for their business. They liked the systems easy to use drag and drop checklist building, which meant they could easily create checklists to match their exact requirements. They were equally impressed by AssetGo’s instant notifications and how the system enabled them to keep track of any defects identified during their daily checks, without having to complete time-consuming paperwork.
The functionality of AssetGo means that they are able to automate and optimise their processes, considerably reducing human error, and ensuring their business remains safe and fully compliant – reducing risk, liability and cost.
Diane Carr from Bulk Group commented “Things are updated instantly, I can keep a check on drivers start times, it’s quick and easy to find anything without getting folders out. I can add different records to the system like Brake tests, LOLER records, tests etc. The system also works well as an asset register. Quick and easy for anyone in the office to use. As well as our main vehicles, we can also carry out checks on our operators’ licence, forklifts, JCB, Trommel, Brokk, Bobcat, Fuchs and the overall site.“
