Jan. 29, 2013 – Volvo Rents, a worldwide
provider of small-to-medium sized construction equipment, released the latest
version of its free iPhone application on Jan. 10. By midnight,
the app had already picked up nearly 500 downloads. The original app was released back in July, 2010, and
has undergone minor updates since its release; however, none have been as
significant as the most recent launch. This newest version, optimized for the
new larger screens, caters to the growing consumer demand for simplicity,
efficiency, and a one-stop-shop for content and information.

The application offers material and support for
customers, vendors, salespeople and employees in a comprehensive and
streamlined application which allows them to access product information, new
models and specs for equipment, added RSS Feeds, and company data. The content
goes as far as including full interactive manuals from different manufacturers,
saving time for both customers and employees.

“Being able to access this type of information from a
single app will be incredibly beneficial to our customers and employees out at
job sites, limiting the amount of materials they need to bring with them and
find access to,” said Patrick Farley, manager of sales technology for Volvo
Rents
. “We hope to continue developing the application and
supporting materials to create the ideal tool for users out in the field and
those shopping around for equipment detail and comparisons.”

Streamlined to offer easier navigation and more comprehensive content, the new
Volvo Rents app includes “Instruction” pages to help guide users through the
various elements and content included. Additional features users can find in
the new application include:

• Linking all equipment specifications, images and
documentation to content on the Volvo Rents website

• New models and specs for Volvo CE, Genie and
JLG equipment

• Specs for Doosan, Magnum and Wacker
equipment

• New customer credit application, English and
Spanish line cards and web links

• Small user interface changes, enhancements
and bug fixes

For Volvo Rents employees, added features include new model numbers in the
Competitive Comparison Tool, the ability to email side-by-side specs from CCT,
and a nation-wide Rate Report listing.
