Venice, FL… 1st Guard Corporation is proud to announce that Apple has approved version 2.0 of the TRUCKER1 iPhone app. It is accessible to download now from the Apple App store. You can also visit www.1stguard.com to learn more about TRUCKER1.
"The need to improve and enhance TRUCKER1 ultimately came from ideas given to us by truckers", stated 1st Guard's® Chief Information Officer, Dan Ribar. "Many of the changes seen in this new version started out as conversations we had with our customers at trade shows."
The main goals of enhancing TRUCKER1 were to provide faster access to detailed data in a more efficient manner. Quite technical but very practical in today's world of virtual e-commerce. Some features were removed in version 2.0 of TRUCKER1that were not needed while those that were critical were enhanced to met the truckers needs. Here's what we did:
Eliminated our speedometers. Too many out there.
Eliminated the Find a Friend feature. This is available on the iPhone so we eliminated our version.
Email alerts are now integrated with contacts. This idea came from a trucker!
Added Agent Connect. This feature is on the front screen and will automatically connect your phone number to an agent at 1st Guard. This keeps you from having to find the number.
Added Trucker Referral. 1st Guard believes in word of mouth. This new feature gives you the opportunity to refer one of your trucker friends to 1st Guard for a quote.
Added 1st Guard News. Stay current with the latest news and happening from 1st Guard on the web.
Added Customer Pictures. Store a picture of yourself and your truck. If you are insured with 1st Guard these pictures show up in your account.
Added My Status. This new function gives you an executive view of your performance with 1st Guard regarding your truck insurance.
TRUCKER1 is a free iPhone app for anyone - but it is particularly useful for truckers and 1st Guard customers. No matter where you are or what time of day it is, TRUCKER1 provides essential detailed information about the trucker's insurance. "TRUCKER1 is a virtual ID card in the palm of your hand," concluded Ribar.
