📣 Web Platform Release 6.19

New “Out of Service” log for assets!

  • Now customers can hop into an asset profile, select the text link: “out of service log,” and view the entire history of the asset – from the number of days, it’s been in service to the number of times it’s been taken off the road, to when it was healthy and checked back in service.

    Important to know:

    An asset is only considered out of service for 1 day if the date changes. So if it’s taken out of service at 2 pm on 2nd November and put back into service at 4 pm on 2nd November, it will not be marked as out of service for 1 day. It will only show that it’s been marked out of service once.

    However, if it’s taken out of service at 11:58 pm on 2nd November and then put back into service at 2 am on 3rd November, it will be marked as out of service for 1 day because the date changed from 2nd to 3rd November.

    This addition provides customers with a complete overview of the asset's health in one simple timeline, enabling them to make data-driven decisions around asset replacements, investments, or costs and value.

📣 Web Platform Release 6.18

Motive Asset Sync

  • This update enables all vehicles and trailers/machinery to sync as assets in Whip Around from Motive. Customers can now manage all their assets in one place.

    UI enhancements enable customers to choose between syncing vehicles only, trailer/machinery only, or syncing all vehicles and trailers/machinery in one go.

    To enable the upgrade, customers need to click on a link specifically for their account which grants authorization to Whip Around to access the trailer/machinery asset API in Motive. Whip Around CMS will support customers to complete this action.

    The addition of assets into Whip Around will incur the same billing as the current subscription plan the customer is on.

📣 Mobile App Enhancement

Mobile Design Consistency

  • The “People” and “Asset” tabs on the Whip Around mobile app now feature a newly improved and intuitive UI. Managers and Drivers can update their profiles on the go using the new interface. Asset and Driver lists feature the new interface.

📣 Web Platform Release 6.17

VIN Decoder

  • The VIN decoder integration streamlines the asset onboarding process, saving you time and ensuring your asset profile is populated with accurate data. That way you’ll have all the information you need to manage your fleet’s growth and any vehicle replacements.

Labor tax on work orders

  • When it comes to tax on labor, in certain instances the tax doesn’t apply or might vary. With this improvement, we’re making it easier and more flexible for you to see what gets accounted for in the total of a work order, and exclude inapplicable costs if required.

New out-of-service label

  • We have updated the label to better visually distinguish which assets have been marked as out-of-service across the main pages of the product.

📣 Web Platform Release 6.16

Filter lists by team(s)

  • The list pages such as inspection history, defects, work orders, service schedules, and drivers received a long-awaited team filter allowing companies to filter through and see the result for the selected team(s) – not everything all at once. This will also impact exporting, which will export information for the selected team(s) only.

Add comments on work orders

  • From now on, you can use the dedicated comments section on work orders. Whether it’s a status update on repair, technical details, or something to note, you can use that section to keep your team updated.

Work orders generated by service schedules

  • We built a visual distinction for work orders automatically generated from service schedules. This will help you to identify those automated items and understand which service schedule they’re part of more easily.
