      Digital vehicle checks with cadis

      There are many good reasons for the digitalization of the vehicle check process.

      Available in several languages

      The cadis mobile application is guiding the driver (in his own language, if required) through the different vehicle-specific check points. If defects occur – depending on the type of damage – the driver can additionally mark the damages in form of a digital drawing or enter a short description text.

      Mandatory and optional checks

      Generally a difference is made between mandatory and optional checks.

      All mandatory checks i. e. the functioning of brakes have to be performed without any exceptions. In addition checks can also depend on various conditions i. e. the check of a starting aid equipment or the carrying of an ice scraper which can be required depending on weather conditions.

      Automated evaluation

      After running through all relevant test points a final evaluation is displayed by the system. If critical defects occur a message is displayed and the departure is not authorized.

      Archiving system

      After approval of the vehicle check result the dispatcher can call up all vehicle check forms on the display in cadis control. For long-term storage the forms can be exported to an archiving system.
