BOSTON, Mass. (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
LinkeDrive®, Inc., a leading provider of mobile solutions for the transportation industry, today announced an installation and servicing partnership with TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands.
Through this agreement, TA Truck Service technicians at TA and Petro locations will be trained on the installation and servicing of LinkeDrive’s PedalCoach® mobile application at the headquarters of TravelCenters of America in Westlake, Ohio. In an effort to meet the growing demand for LinkeDrive’s popular PedalCoach application, TA technicians will apply their newly acquired TA Truck Service training to assist truckers with new PedalCoach installations, service and/or upgrades at TA Truck Service Centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Leveraging LinkeDrive’s cloud-based platform, PedalCoach provide real-time, adaptive feedback for improving fuel efficiency and safety. The patented solution’s proprietary algorithms set a unique fueling target for each driver communicated in a simple red-yellow-green interface that allows drivers to earn “points” for achieving optimal behaviors and patterns. And linking that to pay-for-performance programs enables drivers to be financially compensated on their ability to meet pre-established goals related to performance and safety.
“TA Truck Service Centers are staffed with the most highly-trained and certified technicians anywhere,” said Jeff Baer, LinkeDrive’s CEO. “State-of-the-art classroom training, extensive ASE training and TIA certification, plus Mentor Technicians and an ASE Master Technician hotline provide support 24/7/365, so no repair is too tough for their team. This partnership greatly expands our resources and enables us to focus more on growing our business and maintaining the highest levels of customer service.”
