Prevost adds service finder app

Posted on June 28, 2011

[IMAGE]Prevost-Service-Locator-App-screenshot-2.jpg[/IMAGE]Finding a Prevost service provider just became much easier with the release of the Prevost Service Locator Mobile App. The mobile app allows users to find the nearest Prevost service provider in North America with a simple touch of their smart phone or other mobile device.

The app features detailed information about the seven Prevost Service Centers and 133 Prevost-certified Service Providers throughout North America. No matter where they are on the road, drivers can find the nearest service provider to their current location, or they can search for a provider by state or province.

When they select a service provider, users can view the address, phone number, e-mail, list of services and written directions. They can then tap to automatically dial the phone number, send an e-mail, open the website or view a map showing the service provider’s location and turn-by-turn directions from their current location.

The app is available in English, French and Spanish versions. Mobile device users can download the app for free at Apple’s App Store or Android Market.

This effort is part of a company-wide program to provide easy access to important tools for operators and drivers.

As part of its Mobile Application program, Prevost also is introducing the use of QR codes, which offer users quick access to important information, documents and videos through their mobile device. Using their phone or other mobile device, drivers can simply scan the code located in the driver’s area, giving them access to the vehicle Driver’s Guide, the vehicle Driver’s Manual, and an instructional video on using the wheelchair lift.

In addition, passengers will scan a code next to their seat and their device will give them one-touch access to a vehicle safety video and a video highlighting the Prevost vehicles.
