Prevost updates mobile apps, Volvo Group intros apps

Posted on September 10, 2013

Prevost has enhanced two of their mobile apps, its service provider locator app and the tool app that combines the company's service resources.

The Prevost Locator App, which provides an easy way to locate a Prevost service provider anywhere in North America, has added some new functionality. The ‘service level’ for each of the 160+ providers is now displayed, letting users know what coach services are offered by each service provider. Additionally, each service provider pin on the map is color-coordinated and icon-coordinated by category, so users can easily identify providers on the map by type.

The Prevost Tools App tht puts access to many Prevost Service tools in one application, has been updated with some new resources:

• ‘My Bulletins’ gives users access to a list of service bulletins according to their specific vehicles.
• ‘Contacts’ gives users a list of service team contacts and an auto dial function for those reading the document on a phone.
• ‘Marketing Tools’ gives users a link to the Prevost Marketing Tools site, which provides print ads, photos and presentations to help operators with their marketing.
• ‘Conversion Portal’ gives Prevost authorized converters a link to conversion coach resources.

Prevost Tools App users can also link to wiring diagrams, pneumatic diagrams, technical manuals, driver’s guides and service bulletins for any Prevost or Volvo motorcoach. The app also provides links to Prevost online warranty services, Prevost Liaison telematics system, and online parts ordering.
