On location: Bridgestone app helps truckers
The Bridgestone Commercial Solutions (BCS) division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations has launched a multi-platform mobile app for its Bridgestone Everywhere Network (b.e.n.).
The company says the app is a dealer locator designed to connect truckers to the resources they need when they need them most.
“Bridgestone Everywhere Network is the ultimate resource for today’s trucker,” said Scott Damon, vice president, Marketing, BCS. “From your tablet or smart phone, truckers can now get the Bridgestone, Firestone or Bandag services they need with a few simple clicks. It keeps truckers safer, more connected and more productive than ever before.”
By selecting their location or entering a new location, truckers can find service, products or emergency help, complete with pinpoint maps offering directions to the most suitable dealers or truck stops.
Truckers 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. application is supported on Android, Blackberry and iPhone platforms. Download the application on your mobile phone for free at Apple, Android, or Blackberry marketplace.
