I think I mentioned before that we have been very busy this year and one of the projects we have been working hard on over the last few months is a pre-trip inspection application for the iPhone and iPad. For short, it’s called PTIC, which fits nicely under the icon obviously. While it may seem that we only do live media work, we have also concentrated some of our efforts in other technology that would be useful and partner well with our live media work. Whether we are building a CMS, live chat, video recorder or now with our latest in-house app, Willow for Wowza Media Server, how can you not think about porting over to mobile or at least making it compatible with mobile devices.
This app was developed for drivers of commercial-sized trucks. It provides a full and efficient pre-trip inspection procedure right on an iPad or iPhone.
The app guides the driver through an inspection of the truck and trailer (where applicable), and provides information on components to check, possible deficiencies, the check of the air brakes system, and much more.
The driver can send in the report to the home terminal when finished the inspection, with notes and pictures, if desired, and the report is also saved in the driver’s device for up to 3 months so that each day’s record is available for reference and if needed during an inspection.
The pre-trip inspection is required by law. This program makes it simple.
