About The Checker Leadership Team

Dave Lefevre and Shawn Macpherson founded Devtra Inc. in 1989 to provide training and consulting across a range of industries, with a focus on equipment operations, material handling, inspections, maintenance, safety, and compliance.

In 2000, Devtra launched The Checker, which has become the most comprehensive and effective inspection checklist system in existence—having been used to conduct more than 20 million inspections by companies of all sizes and types throughout North America.

To further its mission of making equipment inspections a competitive advantage for its customers, Devtra premiered its SaaS inspection management system, allowing The Checker’s field-proven Checklists to be used and enable more-efficient inspection management.

The root of everything we do goes back to inspections
