Whip Around Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Whip Around's features:

James K.

ease of use

2019-03-29

very helpful to fleet management and staying within standards

Pros

Saves time and defects get reported live to our emails and the environmental aspect, going paperless is a plus!

Cons

logins would not sign out 24H in, drivers need to ensure the proper username is used, which is a minor issue but more a coaching/training issue for the teams!

Amazing tool for remotely managing fleet and driver staff

2019-05-20

Overall, Whip-Around is a great product and a very effective tool.

Pros

This software has been the perfect solution to remotely manage pre and post trip reports, vehicle maintenance, and driver compliance. It’s very simple to implement with drivers due in large part to not require special or expensive equipment - most of our drivers use the free app on their own smartphones.

Cons

Currently, there is no feature in place that notifies drivers of the status of faults they reported.

User Friendly for Maintenance Compliance and Cost Tracking

2021-03-02

Whip Around support was helpful in setting up reports and forms initially but they are super easy to do, so support really isn't necessary once you see how it's done.

Pros

Working in compliance, I love having processes in place and I love having the data.

Cons

I have had no real issues from an administrative standpoint.

Great All Around Experience

2019-10-30

I've been informed that the "Cons" that i have for this product will be addressed in a future release, and if so, i will not have any "Cons" regarding this product. The support group is very helpful and attentive. My account manager is always positive and on standby should i need assistance. I've received excellent feedback from the foremen and service truck drivers regarding the use of Whip Around. I would highly recommend this product.

Pros

- Ease of use for the management team as well as the individuals performing the software - Very user-friendly interface on the desktop and mobile websites - Easy enrollments via SMS invites in which, post-install, the login process is automated - very easy product to train others on - inspection forms are 100% customizable - the support team has a very quick response time, while being very knowledgeable and efficient

Cons

- no expense tracking - no option to set service reminders

Whip-Around has created a Daily Paperless Soution to DVIR Management and Repair Tracking

2020-07-22

The experience has been good. We continue to look for ways to use the system. We have helped Whip-around get accepted use across the CRH Americas companies, with more coming aboard everyday.

Pros

Helped us track daily compliance with DOT vehicle inspection and vehicle fault and repair tracking.

Cons

We are making headway in creating exception reporting and notification of non-inspection, including last inspection date by email to managers.

All in one Fleet management System

2020-03-23

Pros

It takes alot of the hassle out of Fleet management for the managers as well as the drivers.

Cons

Customization of the reports would be a benefit as well as being able to assign annual inspection dates, for CVIP or other certifications, to vehicles instead of relying on the reminders section. having it auto populate in the maintenance section when due.

Easy to use program!

2019-05-20

Whip Around will eventually be a great program to use because of its easy to use interface. Our company loves using it for vehicle reports because it is simple and quick.

Pros

I liked that the user interface was very easy to use for employees of all ages.

Cons

I did not like the way that the program prints reports (it prints too many pages) or the fact that I cannot link input data directly to a report.

We love WhipAround!

2018-10-12

WhipAround has been a great tool for us to stay in compliance, track team behaviors, and keep records.

Pros

WhipAround allows us to keep an electronic log of complete pre and post-trip inspections and have our teams complete these inspections easily.

Cons

We understand that this may we require API integration, but we believe it would allow us to identify and improve our own compliance issues much more efficiently.
