App provides added convenience for drivers and improved monitoring for management
April 3, 2013, St. Louis – The brand new Enterprise Fleet Management Mobile App, a customized mobile phone application for Android and iPhone users, is now available free of charge to all Enterprise Fleet Management customers. Its touch-screen features are designed to add convenience and efficiencies for any business with a fleet of vehicles.
“We are delighted to offer a mobile application to our customers and their drivers who increasingly rely on mobile phone technologies to improve productivity and efficiency,” said Thomas Chelew, senior vice president for Enterprise Fleet Management. “As a new value-added technology, the new app complements the full-service capabilities, products and services our customers depend on us to provide.”
One of the new app’s benefits, Chelew added, is that it lets business owners send messages to one or more of their drivers, as well as receive status updates on new vehicle orders. In addition, drivers making service calls or traveling to job sites can use the app to record mileage and make notes on a particular job or situation. Those drivers also can use the app to search for fueling locations based on cost, fuel type and distance from their location, as well as view a map and receive turn-by-turn directions.
Similarly, the new app can locate the closest maintenance facility and provide a map and directions from the driver’s location. The app also makes maintenance easier to manage by displaying current or past due oil change reminders and indicating when the work has been completed.
When accidents occur, the app allows drivers to report them in a timely manner and submit the information, including up to four photos of the damage/scene, directly to Enterprise with details about time, location, other parties, whether the vehicle was towed and to what body shop. The app’s click-to-call functionality, which includes a contact number and/or name, also makes it fast and easy to reach the right person at Enterprise who can help with fuel, general account services, maintenance, or roadside assistance in an emergency.
