The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is experiencing improved safety, increased situational awareness and enhanced productivity for its frontline workers and the heavy vehicle industry thanks to a mobile application partnership with Motorola Solutions’ (NY:MSI).
The Regulatory Compliance Mobility Solution (RCMS) application allows NHVR officers to seamlessly track roadside checks online, saving on average 15 minutes per roadside stop (down from 35 minutes on average), while keeping roads safe and the industry moving.
The solution also helps NHVR officers reduce double handling when recording vehicle and driver intercepts, issuing electronic compliance notices and enabling supervisors to review and approve their work on the spot.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the technology had led to less time and hassle as part of necessary roadside checks.
“Ultimately this is about streamlining our processes and data sources at roadside checks so operators can work more efficiently and businesses can keep moving,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“We’ve had positive feedback from our officers and drivers alike, with the information captured delivering greater collaboration and data sharing amongst the industry.
“This is welcome news and it helps us strive towards a common goal of safer roads for everyone.”
Motorola Solutions Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Con Balaskas, said development teams and the NHVR had worked collaboratively throughout the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions to deliver the application.
“By employing a ‘digital first’ approach with the NHVR, we were able to continuously improve the solution based on user feedback,” Mr Balaskas said.
“The end result is a practical and sophisticated mobile solution that improves safety on our roads and enhances productivity across the NHVR workforce.”
