? We just Launched VIN Scanner for IOS in DAMAGE iD Version 3.3 ║█║

Today we launched DAMAGE iD version 3.3 for iPhone and iPad.

In this release, we’ve added the VIN scanner which has been available on Android for a few months now.

Now you can identify vehicles in 3 different ways:

  1. Unit Number
  2. License Plate
  3. VIN

This gives rental agencies, DSPs and transporters even more flexibility when using DAMAGE iD to identify and track vehicle damage.

You can see the VIN scanner in the screenshots below.

After logging in, click the bar code to the right of the “unit number” input field when checking out your vehicle.

The VIN scanner appears. Hover the red line over the bar code for a few seconds and the VIN will be captured.

PRO TIP: Use the flashlight in case the light is low.

Once the VIN is captured, the “Checkout” is automatically submitted. You can now begin your walk-around, photographing and taking videos, building your permanent digital archive of your vehicles’ condition.

We have done 2 DAMAGE iD releases for IOS in the past month. With these releases we are happy to (finally) be achieving “feature parity” with Android. Now both Android and IOS have nearly the same features.

Keep your eyes out for more updates and announcements soon. We are still moving ahead quickly with DAMAGE iD and have some great things in store this summer.

Contact the “A-Team” with any questions or problems with the VIN scanner.

⚡? Auto-Forwarding Introduced in DAMAGE iD iPhone (IOS) Version 3.2 Provides Speedy Walk-Around⚡ ?

We are excited to announce IOS/iPhone/iPad 3.2 is now available on the App Store.

Here’s what you get when you download 3.2.

1. Improved Speed of the Walk-Around by Auto-Forwarding Photos

No more rotating the camera each time you walk to the next position. The overlay automatically rotates to the next position, making your walk-around much smoother and faster.

2. Signature Pad on Outgoing and Return

About 2 months ago, we launched Outgoing Signature Pad and Return Signature Pad for Android.

iPhone users – there is NO NEED TO FEEL LEFT OUT!

(Just be sure to adjust your settings in the Review Portal.)

In version 3.2 you’ll see the Signature Pad when you complete a vehicle inspection (outgoing and return, depending on settings).

3. Ability to Compress Images

Today’s iPhones, like the iPhone X and iPhone 11 take high definition photos with great detail.

BUT they can be HUGE.

We’ve heard from some customers that they prefer a little less image quality vs. having to wait for their images to upload (and appear within the Review Portal). Although we recommend you use the best resolution possible, sometimes slow network speeds can make this compression a requirement – especially on these new phones.

Click the “Gear” to access settings. This opens a new screen where you can adjust compression settings.

Now you can reduce your wait times for uploading by adding compression to your photos.

4. iPhone X and iPhone 11 Notification Bug has been Fixed

Ok, this is a really a bug – not a feature!

Our users will be glad to know that we have used the “Safe Region” on version 3.2 – no more missing those uploading notifications!

We hope you enjoy version 3.2 for iPhone/iPad!

As with any new version, there can be problems, so please contact the “A-TEAM” if you notice anything wrong.

Best of luck getting your business up and running again now that Coronavurs is (mostly) out of the way!
