Improved Checkout Speed, Auto-Login in Version 4.0r60.

This week, we’ve made some small, but IMPORTANT updates.

First, we realized that with all our new customers, the “Checkout” process has gotten a bit slow. (If you ever see something that should be faster, be sure to let the A-Team know. We love to optimize DAMAGE iD!).

(The “Checkout” is the part where you enter your unit number, license plate or scan the VIN number.)

The “Checkout” is when you enter the unit number, license plate or VIN number.

We’ve optimized that. Now Checkouts have gone from 6-8 seconds down to 1 second!

You should be able to notice this when using the app. It should feel much snappier.

(This change affects both Android and IOS/Apple apps).


The second change we made this week, affects Android. (Look for version 4.0r60 in the play store).

This change reduces the number of login screens you will get. When you start up the app it will automatically log you in, until you log out.

This should make the app just a little more pleasant to use.

In future releases, we will be announcing some major software integrations. We want to be compatible with as many software products as possible. Once we have these integrations complete, we will let you know more.

Have a wonderful weekend!

More Storage, Plus 20 Extra Photos on DAMAGE iD Version 3.8

We’ve just added an 20 EXTRA PHOTOS to the latest version of DAMAGE iD!

You’ve asked for this for a long time… the ability to take multiple photos of a specific damage when it’s found. You want the most detail you can get … so take more photos and video!

If you see damage, why take only 5 photos? (Our former version offered 5 “Other/Unspecified” photos.)

Our latest version offers 20 “Other” photos for a total of 27 total photos and videos.*

*Remember, DAMAGE iD doesn’t charge extra for storage space. Photos are stored at no additional cost – and as long as you keep the vehicle in the DAMAGE iD system. At ten seconds each, that can be up to 9 minutes of video per case! That’s alot of MBs!


Another benefit to the increased storage, is that you can now review/retake the photos more easily. No need to click the (+) plus icon — the “Other” photos stay in place the entire time.

Customize your photo positions within Settings section of Review Portal. Use the “Other” photo positions. They will appear as icons with 2-character abbreviations, “TK” for “trunk” and “RF” for “roof”.

Finally, all photos that are customized will appear on the screen.

New, 2-character “icons” (“RF” for “roof”, or “TK” for “trunk”) more clearly indicate the photo position. These icons carry through to the web-based, Review Portal as well.

Now you can more easily show employees which photos they must take.

The new features is available in Android 3.8 version 55. (This feature is not yet available for IOS/iPhone/iPad).

We hope this great new feature helps you keep your fleet damage-free.

We are so happy to be launching this new feature. Happy Fourth of July to all our loyal customers and friends!

DAMAGE iD Version 3.7 Introduces Location Tracking on Photos

Now you have one more way to protect your fleet.

We’ve just added location tracking to DAMAGE iD photos!

The new features is available in Android 3.7 version 50. (This feature is not yet available for IOS/iPhone/iPad).

Location tracking provides accountability for vehicle condition of your rental, DSP or car-sharing fleet!

It might be a little hard to see, but we’ve added the user’s location directly to the photo, near the timestamp and unit number. The timestamp is “baked” into the photo, so it can’t be tampered with or faked.

To enable, click the “Gear” icon on the main screen after logging into the DAMAGE iD app.

Click the “gear” icon to enable the location tracking setting.

Click the “Add location on photos” option.

You will be prompted by the app to allow this feature. Location tracking must also be enabled inside the Android settings.

From that point on, the location will appear on your photos.

We hope this great new feature helps you keep your fleet damage-free.

Best of luck with your fleet!
