SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan based MyCDLapp.com recently updated its popular software to include a custom question builder. MyCDLapp.com allows small and medium carriers to implement affordable online driver job applications that are mobile-ready and can accept electronic signatures on any device. The addition of the custom question feature allows carriers to better adapt the online driver application to their unique business need. Carriers can now add their own tailored questions to the standard questions already included in the FMCSA-compliant employment application.
Current users of the software are taking advantage of the new feature to create detailed questions that help narrow down areas that are specific to their own operations or industries. For example, an Ohio based flatbed carrier added several questions focused on experience with tarps and straps. "Most experienced hiring managers know the particular questions that help them to discern better-fit drivers from those that are not as likely to be successful," says Brandon Lawrence, Customer Service Manager at MyCDLapp.com. "In most cases, though, they simply don't have the means to easily incorporate those questions into their screening processes." MyCDLapp.com makes it possible to add custom questions within minutes, and then to refine or update them as business needs change.
Custom questions in MyCDLapp.com can take the form of simple text field questions, multiple choice, or yes/no questions. Additional question formats are expected to be added in the near future. The custom question builder utilizes a straightforward interface that requires no coding experience. In addition to the variety of questions offered, users also control the placement of each question within the application. An unlimited number of questions can be added.
The ability to continuously rework the driver application to address day-to-day changes in business offers a significant screening advantage over employment applications with static questions. "We understand that no two carriers are alike and wanted to offer a simple and affordable way for each of them to address their particular operational nuances early in the hiring process," said Lawrence, "The result will be that those carriers see an improvement in both the quality and quantity of hires using our tools."
