Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MATT) is rolling out two new mobile truck tire applications in the U.S. and Canada for Apple iPhone and Android-based smartphones.

The additions join the Blackberry application, unveiled in August, along with the existing Michelin ONCall emergency road service (ERS) and the online dealer and service locators in the company’s “Wherever You Go” offering.

“With the introduction of these iPhone and Android apps, smartphone users across the trucking industry now have easy access to Michelin product and service locations,” says MATT marketing manager Jaye Young.

“With today’s on-the-go, real-time business environment, we are delivering information directly to our customers wherever they go,” Young reports.

Using GPS location and Google Maps technology, the iPhone and Android applications provide the location of the nearest Michelin truck tire or service provider, as well as information about the facility’s offerings.

Users can call ONCall ERS directly from the app or search for a provider by category, including emergency road service, travel plazas, onsite tire service or MRT retread locations.

The applications can also display service providers based on an entered location other than the current GPS location. Users have the ability to call the dealer, obtain driving directions to the site or save the tire dealer’s information to their device’s contacts or address book.

The iPhone app is designed to also work on iPod Touch units, with similar functionality when connected to Wi-Fi, but without the GPS-based services.
