MVIRS Cost/Benefit Analysis

The benefits of MVIRS are both intangible and tangible. Intangible benefits include the professional-looking Customer Inspection Report that can be given to the customer, and state inspection records that are more accurate and legible, leading to fewer problems with your Quality Assurance Officer.

The main tangible benefit is the reduced time required to complete MV-431 and MV-480 forms.
