Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has launched a multi-platform mobile app for its Bridgestone Everywhere Network (b.e.n.), a dealer locator designed to connect truckers to the resources they need when they need them most.

Unlike many others, the b.e.n. application is supported on the Blackberry as well as Android and iPhone platforms. Download the application on a mobile phone for free at Apple, Android, or Blackberry marketplace.

By selecting their location or entering a new location, drivers can find service, products or emergency help, complete with maps offering directions to the most suitable dealers or truck stops. That includes Bridgestone, Firestone or Bandag services.

Users can search results by one or any combination of emergency service, dealer or location, 24-hour service, and tow service. Users can zoom, scroll, and view the best road maps and driving directions to the service provider of their choice.

The application also features truck stop or dealer service capabilities, proximity and hours of operation. Users can also save service provider contact information in their favorites.

The b.e.n. mobile app complements Bridgestone’s online dealer locator.
