Continental TireTech App Supports Fleets and Dealers
Optimal tyre inflation pressure and the right tyre selection mean the best possible tyre performance and the greatest possible fleet efficiency. What sounds so simple is not always easy to implement in the price-driven day-to-day business of fleets. Continental therefore supports fleet operators, dealers and service technicians in maximising the safety and efficiency of their tyres with the TireTech mobile app for agricultural tyres, which is now also available for truck and bus tyres.
Available to download for free on both iOS and Android, the Continental TireTech app is a technical advice tool further developed for dealers, fleet managers and technicians. The platform provides quick and easy access to up-to-date tyre and service information for Continental's full range of tyres for agricultural and commercial vehicles. The app’s content is available in multiple languages, is ready to use within seconds of installation, and can be easily configured to meet users' individual needs.
Amongst the features offered by the Continental TireTech app is an integrated Pressure-Load Calculator, which helps users to determine the correct pressures for each tyre based on the vehicle axle load and tyre size. The database of technical tyre data and library of supporting images provides another powerful function. Plus, the technical data can also be accessed without an internet connection. A contact form completes the service app’s offering, enabling customers to directly reach Continental’s technical service team. “With the Continental TireTech app, we are continuing to digitalise tyre maintenance services,” says Catherine Loss, Head of Technical Customer Services EMEA at Continental. “Our technical service team is excited to expand the functionalities of this app, complementing our existing customer offering.”
"With the Pressure-Load Calculator, fleet managers, technicians and tyre retailers are able to determine the optimal inflation pressure for their tyres, depending on the application," Loss explains. "The Continental TireTech app helps to increase the efficiency of a fleet and reduce tyre operating costs. The app also contributes to lowering emissions significantly, thanks to the correct pressures helping to reduce rolling resistance. This makes the Continental TireTech app another building block of Continental's holistic Lowest Overall Driving Costs (LODC) approach.”
