LinkeDrive, provider of a fuel-saving mobile application, announced an installation and servicing partnership with TravelCenters of America (TravelCenters), operator of the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands.

Through this agreement, TA Truck Service technicians at TA and Petro locations will be trained on the installation and servicing of LinkeDrive’s PedalCoach mobile application at the headquarters of TravelCenters of America in Westlake, Ohio.

In an effort to meet the growing demand for LinkeDrive’s popular PedalCoach application, the company says that TA technicians will apply their newly acquired TA Truck Service training to assist truckers with PedalCoach installations, service and/or upgrades at TA Truck Service Centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

PedalCoach connects with LinkeDrive’s cloud-based platform to five real-time, adaptive feedback to drivers for improving fuel efficiency and safety. The app uses proprietary algorithms to set a unique fueling target for each driver communicated in a simple red-yellow-green interface.

The app rewards “points” to drivers for achieving optimal behaviors and patterns. The points can be linked to pay-for-performance programs to compensate drivers for their ability to meet pre-established goals related to performance and safety.

“TA Truck Service Centers are staffed with the most highly-trained and certified technicians anywhere,” said Jeff Baer, LinkeDrive’s CEO. “This partnership greatly expands our resources and enables us to focus more on growing our business and maintaining the highest levels of customer service.”
