LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Daimler Trucks North America has a new mobile application for smartphones which allows drivers to access service locations, parts information and to connect to on-call breakdown assistance services.
Called TruckerNet, the application has a service location finder and parts specials. Drivers will also have the ability to access immediate breakdown service support with connections to the Excelerator breakdown assistance service through the app’s one-touch interface.
“The adoption of Web-enabled phones has skyrocketed in our industry over the last few years as everyone from owner/operators to fleet drivers look for better ways to share information and stay connected, ” says Daniel Haggerty, director of parts marketing for Daimler Trucks North America. “We’re leveraging that technology to help drivers on the road with better information and access to the parts and service they need.”
The TruckerNet smartphone app is available for iPhone through Apple’s iTunes App Store and for Android system phones at the Android Market. A version for RIM Blackberry systems is planned for release in the late spring.
To download the mobile app, drivers can go to TruckerNet.com to download the app directly to their desktop or directly to their smartphone by choosing their operating system or by downloading a QR code from the Web page.
