Over 1 Million Drivers Now Have Faster/Easier Fueling Option at TA Locations
Transflo Integrates the TA TruckSmart Mobile App with its platform
Professional drivers can now access the TravelCenters of America (TA) TruckSmart mobile app through the Transflo Mobile+ platform. Starting today, Transflo by Pegasus Transtech, the leader in enterprise mobility and business process automation for the transportation industry, is integrating with TA to serve more drivers.
Transflo’s integration includes capabilities that allow professional drivers to expedite the fueling process at TravelCenters of America locations across the nation. The experience saves drivers time and helps them avoid hassles each time they fuel.
Other features of the TruckSmart mobile app integration include:
- In-app fuel receipts
- Instant access to loyalty points
- Route mapping and travel center locator
- Shower reservations
- Reserve parking
- Reserve truck services
- RoadSquad services
The new features are automatically activated by a virtual geofence, developed by Transflo, surrounding TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express locations. When drivers enter the geofenced area, they receive an alert directing them to the TruckSmart functions. This ensures that vehicle operators do not need to use the app while driving and adds to the existing in-motion safety features of the solution.
“Our partnership with Transflo provides our customers a streamlined way to access the critical TA services they value and have come to rely on,” said Sean Kubovcik, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer. “We look forward to adding even more services over time through this partnership.”
The integrated TruckSmart functionality will be accessible by all drivers who use the Transflo Mobile+ app which currently has over 1.3 million downloads.
“Transflo is excited about the continued expansion of our partnership with TA by helping our users easily gain access to TA’s great driver facing features found within TruckSmart,” added Doug Schrier, Vice President of Product and Innovation. “Transflo continues to focus on ways to make it easier for professional drivers to complete their work-day through our center stage app. Every time we can help save a driver time and reduce frustration, it’s a win for the industry.”
