Mobility Solutions Offered by Indian CV Manufacturers
Published On Jun 22, 2016
As mobile apps are currently ruling the electronic world, commercial vehicle (CV) manufacturers are reaching out to stakeholders and customers by providing easy mobility solutions and support services. While there are several mobile applications meant for the automobile sector, let’s have a look at the top three CV apps meant solely for commercial vehicles.
Tata Motors Care
The leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles in India, Tata Motors, rules the mobile app space too as compared to other manufacturers. Tata has introduced multiple apps for different segments and different markets worldwide, and caters to the commercial vehicle customers in India through its all-in-one Tata Motors Care app. The app provides easy access of support services for Tata Motors commercial vehicles. Users can easily find locations of dealers, workshops and service centers and also get several tips on safety, parking, driving etc.
Apart from this, the CV app lists out the service intervals of each Tata truck in order to prevent confusion among fleet owners of multiple truck models. Other features include oil recommendations, details of ongoing customer campaigns and insights of the Tata Motors Prolife program.
The company has also introduced the Tata FleetMan app for commercial vehicles that guides users about its fleet telematics and helps owners and operators manage their fleet in a productive and profitable manner. Partspedia is another app through which users can find complete range of spare parts manufactured under Tata Genuine Parts.
Ashok Leyland Dealer Locator
Spanning multiple countries across the globe including India, Ashok Leyland Dealer Locator is an apt CV app for finding dealer addresses based on product and network types. Apart from dealer workshops, users can also find addresses of offices, power solutions, service and spare parts centers of the company through the app. Dealership locations have been further segregated in terms of heavy and light vehicles, thus increasing ease of use.
Users can also keep another app, Leyland Direct, handy as it helps Ashok Leyland customers and dealers find the nearest connected services and support via the Google map interface.
Exclusively built for trucking partners, Eicher Now offers support to commercial vehicles and also provides information about the company’s latest news and products. Users can also get details about the Eicher Live fleet management system and learn extensively about the key benefits such as conveniently managing uptime, managing fuel and managing trips.
Fleet owners can also calculate savings using Eicher Live in their trucks. Truckers can also fix a training session through the CV app for more knowledge about the intelligent technology offered by Eicher.
While we have rounded up domestic brands bringing out mobile apps centered only for the Indian stakeholders, other international brands such as Volvo have extensive apps meant for a global audience (Volvo Trucks Total Cost Calculator, Dealer Point, Dynafleet, Truck Finder, Volvo Trucks Driver’s Handbook). Even though the penetration of CV apps is not that significant in India, mobility solutions are getting more refined day by day and we expect other players in the Indian CV arena as well as customers to leverage this platform at a much higher rate in the future.
