Blackberry app connects truckers with Michelin

Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MATT) is rolling out a mobile dealer-locator application for Blackberry smart phones used in the United States and Canada. The new Michelin Blackberry application joins the existing Michelin ONCall emergency road service (ERS) and online dealer and service locator in Michelin’s “Wherever You Go” offering.

The Blackberry application provides the location of the nearest Michelin truck tire or service provider, as well as basic information about that location, all from the hand-held Blackberry device. Users can call ONCall ERS directly from the app or search for a provider by category, including emergency road service, travel plazas, on-site tire service, or MRT retread providers. The application can provide service providers based on the user’s current GPS location or an entered location. It also lets users call the service provider or save the provider’s information to their device’s contacts or address book.

In addition to being able to call for emergency road service directly from the application, Michelin has recently enhanced ONCall ERS at 1-800-TIRE-911.
