(PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Ride-Away, one of the nation's largest providers of wheelchair vans, vehicle modifications, and adaptive equipment, has today announced the debut of their powerful new smartphone app, designed to put all the information mobility customers need right in their hands.
The Information Age has enabled the spread of information through a variety of mediums, from PCs and laptops to smartphones. Ride-Away recognized the potential of smartphone technology for individuals with physical disabilities and created a new app for Android phones and iPhones that will provide several advantages.
The new app offers instant access to local phone numbers for each Ride-Away location, as well as the ability to email each location for additional information. For those interested in purchasing a wheelchair van, the app also provides inventory links to new wheelchair vans, used handicap vans and "Featured" inventory. Numerous other advantages are provided via the new app, including rental request submissions, service request submissions, event details, Ride-Away’s blog, full Facebook and Twitter integration, YouTube and even an image gallery.
For individuals with physical disabilities and their families, the new smartphone app offered by Ride-Away offers a number of significant advantages. For instance, the app ensures that customers can easily call the closest location, with no need to look up contact information. In addition, 24/7 live voice emergency help is available directly via the app, and service appointments and rental requests can be made with the touch of a button.
Perhaps the best innovative feature of the app is the ability it gives customers to browse the entire inventory of new and used handicap accessible vans directly from their smartphone. Of course, the ability to find out what's going on at Ride-Away from the phone is also a nice addition.
The new Ride-Away smartphone app offers convenience, immediate easy access to important information and provides today's mobility customer with a wide range of powerful benefits.
