Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it does. Drivers can report defects and fill out the required fields in the Stream mobile app as part of the walkaround check process. They can even record detailed notes and use the phone camera to capture photos of every defect.

Yes, if the driver has no signal on their mobile device they can still complete vehicle checks and report defects. Any information captured will be passed back to Stream once their signal returns, and defect notifications will also be sent at this point.

You can use Stream to replace your paper vehicle defect book. Report defects in the mobile App, track defects from discovery to resolution, and build a detailed defect history for every vehicle, all in one place. You can even customise your settings to choose the information you want drivers to record about each type of defect.

Details of every defect reported are stored against the corresponding vehicles for 18 months, giving you the ability to build up a comprehensive vehicle defect history and audit trail for your entire fleet. You can also use Extended Data Retention to increase the amount of time that we hold this data for you.

Automatic alerts can be triggered when a defect is reported and the necessary steps can be taken to get the vehicle back on the road. Using the Stream mobile app to identify and report defects before they become a more serious issue can help keep those expensive repair costs down and keep your vehicles safe and out on the road.
