Early Bird Pricing: You get 30 days free, then a flat monthly fee of $10 for SAM or $39 for Orion. By activating this addon, you're agreeing to this charge (but you can cancel later if you decide it's not for you!). Early bird pricing for a limited time only.

This is the full comprehensive user guide. If you want to quickly get started with SmartCheck eWoF , we recommend zooming through our Quick Setup Guide here: SmartCheck (eWOF) - Quick Setup Guide

IMPORTANT: Note the COMPANY CODE displayed on this screen. You'll need this to log into SmartCheck.

Setup / Configuration

Before you can use SmartCheck, you'll need to set up Company Details and Logins for all users who will need access to SmartCheck. 

If you're doing WoF inspections, tick the 'I Perform WOF's' tickbox and enter your NZTA/Waka Kotahi supplied AVIC No. 

IMPORTANT: You cannot do WOF Inspections in Smartcheck without an AVIC No. 

Setup Company Details

This will open the below Company Setup screen in your browser. 

Fill in the address and contact details fields (1) and if you are doing WOF inspections, ensure the AVIC number is correct (2). Click Save (3) when you're done. You can now close the browser window and return to the main setup screen in SAM. 

Emailing Failed Check Results: On the Email tab of the screen shown above you can configure your email settings. Then as outlined on the User Setup KB article, you can set individual users up with an email address that will receive notifications of all failed checksheet results. 

Setup Logins

IMPORTANT: Waka Kotahi Requirements in regards to Electronic WOF Checksheets

You have to keep paper checksheets in case of outages

As mandated by Waka Kotahi, all users of Electronic WOF Checksheets must hold paper checksheets as a back-up in case of system, internet or IT outages. See more here:

You must ensure all your staff using the Smartcheck Electronic WOF checksheets are trained and aware of the full and proper operation of Smartcheck, including but not limited to the entry and completion of a vehicle inspection, recheck inspections, retrieval and supply of records and what to do where the user experiences difficulty accessing Smartcheck. We have created the following KB articles to support this requirement:
