PHH Arval unveils Blackberry mobile app for fleets

PHH's mobile app is installed on fleet drivers' Blackberry devices, giving drivers immediate access to various PHH services and call centres, including help with accidents, maintenance, and other transactions.

If the application initiates a call to a PHH agent, the agent automatically has pertinent information about the driver and the vehicle, eliminating the need for the driver to provide a vehicle unit number, driver ID or service card number.

Subsequent phases of the app will include additional functionality and make it available on other wireless devices.

The R&D team at PHH Arval's Innovation Centre scan the broader technology horizon for new technologies that might solve a problem for a driver or fleet manager, and specialise in rapid prototyping and piloting of the next generation of innovative fleet applications.

According to PHH Arval's chief information officer, David Zuidema, this first-to-market mobile application is just the beginning of a new wave of technology advances the company has planned.
