Mobile App Release!

If the headline caught your attention we are glad you have found your way to this post. We are always looking for ways to leverage technology to provide better service to our business partners and driver community. The smart phone of today packs a powerful computer in the palm of your hand. This computer is not only packed with power, but it is also connected to the web 24x7. This combination of power and connectivity makes great things possible in terms of communication and interaction.

Mobile apps are everywhere it seems. There is a great chance you have a long list of your personal favorites. Today we are releasing a new custom app for Andriod devices. We hope this app will become one of your favorites with time. This application is purpose built with the idea of delivering custom content to our employees and business partners.

The application is designed to supplement the interactions you have online at www.firstfleetinc.com. In our initial release we will not be able to duplicate all of those interactions, but we have covered a strong base of function. The mobile app puts information at your fingertips with the ease you have come to expect a smart phone to provide.

What does it do?

The initial release has functions which are the most commonly used tools today.

  • Employees - view pay history and load assignments complete with contact information, integrated dialing, mapping and more. 
  • Business Partners - quick and easy access to load tracking today. Proof of delivery will coming very soon!
Moving forward we are committed to building first class features into this application and will work hard to make the feature set grow over time. We hope the initial offering is helpful and are asking for your help to make it better.

To start we would love for you to download the app today. You will find the application in the Google Play Store under the name of FirstFleet or using this link. Once you download and install the application you will need to sign in.

If you are already registered at www.firstfleetinc.com you simply need to login using those same credentials. If you are not registered there is a registration option in the application which will register your account in a few quick and painless steps.

Once you have the application installed use the gear icon to send us feedback with regard to what features or ideas you have for the application. Your feedback is essential to making a great application that fits your needs.

What's in it for me?

As an incentive to get this process moving we are going to give away an in cab navigation device from Rand McNally to one randomly selected employee who downloads and uses the application through 6/30/2015. Each day you use the application will count as one entry into the drawing, increase your chances by using it daily to check your assigned loads or view pay details.

What about the business partners you say? We don't want you left out for sure. We need your help to make functions that target our strong customer base. If you as a partner download and use the app to track a load we will enter your name into a random draw for a gift card to the PlayStore or AppStore. Names will be entered once per day that you use the app to track freight.

Entries valid through 6/30/2015. Winners will be notified via email.

What about Apple?

We are working diligently to get the Apple version of this application ready for use, and are hung up a bit in the approval process with Apple. We will keep at it, and are committed to bringing the same functionality and innovation to both platforms - stay tuned!

Thanks for your time and thanks for trying our application out. We hope you will provide us with good feedback for the opportunities we have to improve and innovate.
