SPARKS, MD - PHH Arval has announced the launch of a new mobile application designed to increase the productivity and satisfaction of its clients' fleet drivers.
PHH's mobile application is installed on fleet drivers' Blackberry devices and easily accessed through a PHH icon. Using the application, drivers have immediate access to various PHH services and call centers, including help with accidents, maintenance, and other transactions. If the application initiates a call to a PHH agent, the agent automatically has pertinent information about the driver and the vehicle, eliminating the need for the driver to provide a vehicle unit number, driver ID or service card number. Subsequent phases of the app will include additional functionality and make it available on other wireless devices.
This is an example of new technology applications being developed by PHH Arval's Innovation Center, the only such Research & Development team in the fleet industry. Innovation Center technology experts scan the broader technology horizon for new technologies that might solve a problem for a driver or fleet manager. They specialize in rapid prototyping and piloting of the next generation of innovative fleet applications.
David Zuidema, PHH Arval's chief information officer, said, "This first-to-market mobile application is just the beginning of a new wave of technology advances we have planned. PHH is focused on investing in technology and developing the new ideas that deliver effortless driver and vehicle productivity."
