New Bridgestone app helps truckers connect

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, recently launched a multi-platform mobile app for its Bridgestone Everywhere Network (b.e.n.). By selecting their location or entering a new location, truckers can find service, products or emergency help, complete with pinpoint maps offering directions to the most suitable dealers or truckstops.

“Bridgestone Everywhere Network is the ultimate resource for today’s trucker,” said Scott Damon, vice president of marketing for BCS. “From your tablet or smartphone, truckers can now get the Bridgestone, Firestone or Bandag services they need with a few simple clicks. It keeps truckers safer, more connected and more productive than ever before.”

Truckers can search results by one or any combination of emergency service, dealer or location, 24-hour service and tow service. Users can zoom, scroll and view the best roadmaps and driving directions to the service provider of their choice.

The application also features truckstop or dealer service capabilities, proximity and hours of operation. Users also can save service provider contact information in their favorites.

The b.e.n. application is supported on Android, BlackBerry and iPhone platforms. Download the application on your mobile phone for free at the Apple, Android or BlackBerry marketplaces.
