Volvo Rents, a worldwide provider of small-to-medium sized construction equipment, recently introduced a mobile app for Android phones.
The original Apple iOS app was released back in July 2010 and has undergone both minor and significant updates since its release. After the most recent renovations in July of this year, Volvo Rents has now launched the app for Android. The only contrast between applications is that the Android app is 100 percent customer facing while the iPhone version also is geared towards employees for use on company phones.
“Our iPhone App has been a phenomenal success,” said Patrick Farley, manager of sales technology of Volvo Rents. “Even with this success, we realized that not all of our customers have Apple products. With the launch of our Android mobile app, we now have applications on the two most dominant mobile operating systems that exist today — Android and iOS.”
The application offers material and support for customers in a comprehensive and streamlined application, which allows them to access product information, new models and specs for equipment, added RSS Feeds, and store location data. The content goes as far as including full interactive manuals from different manufacturers, saving time for customers searching and comparing different equipment.
Highlighted features of the new application include the ability for customers to find their nearest Volvo Rents location while out on job sites and being able to quickly access details of the locations.
