Volvo Rents last week released the latest version of its free iPhone application, adding nearly 500 downloads by midnight of the launch day.
The original app was released in July 2010, and has undergone minor updates since its release. The newest version, optimized for larger screens, was developed to cater to the growing consumer demand for simplicity, efficiency, and a one-stop-shop for content and information.
The application offers material and support for customers, vendors, salespeople and employees in a comprehensive and streamlined application that allows them to access product information, new models and specs for equipment, added RSS Feeds and company data. The updated app includes full interactive manuals from different manufacturers, saving time for both customers and employees.
“Being able to access this type of information from a single app will be incredibly beneficial to our customers and employees out at jobsites, limiting the amount of materials they need to bring with them and find access to,” said Patrick Farley, manager of sales technology for Volvo Rents. “We hope to continue developing the application and supporting materials to create the ideal tool for users out in the field and those shopping around for equipment detail and comparisons.”
Streamlined to offer easier navigation and more comprehensive content, the new Volvo Rents app includes “Instruction” pages to help guide users through the various elements and content included. Additional features users can find in the new application include:
- Linking all equipment specifications, images and documentation to content on the Volvo Rents website
- New models and specs for Volvo CE, Genie and JLG equipment
- Specs for Doosan, Magnum and Wacker Neuson equipment
- New customer credit application, English and Spanish line cards and web links
- Small user interface changes, enhancements and bug fixes
For Volvo Rents employees, added features include new model numbers in the Competitive Comparison Tool, the ability to email side-by-side specs from CCT, and a nationwide Rate Report listing.
