Gus Commercials Introduces New Fleet Management App

Gus Commercials, one of Northern Ireland’s most reputable independent providers of commercial vehicle hire, sales, servicing and parts, has introduced a new mobile application to help customers manage their fleets.

The app’s primary function is to assist customers that use Gus Commercials’ 24-hour support service when requiring roadside assistance, giving advice on what to do in the event of an accident and who to contact if a breakdown occurs.

While the company has always provided a 24-hour phone line and call out service, often the assistance needed is not mechanical and therefore the most efficient resolution to a breakdown is to contact the specific equipment provider in the first instance.  The app contains the contact names and telephone numbers for all of Gus Commercials’ preferred service partners, including tyres, tail lifts, refrigeration units, hydraulic hoses and windscreens.

While the app has been designed to add value for all Gus Commercials’ customers, it is particularly useful for the company’s contract hire customers, who can report monthly vehicle mileage.

Users can book a vehicle service via the app and can access Gus Commercials’ used stock for sale or raise a rental enquiry directly from their smartphone or tablet.

The app, which was designed by local company, Podium Apps, can now be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play.

Ciarán O’Neill, Commercial Director for Gus Commercials had this to say: “Gus Commercials is known for going the extra mile for customers and we are always looking for ways to make life easier for them.  This app allows fleet managers and drivers of Gus vehicles to communicate with us more easily and helps them to get the right assistance in the most efficient way possible, no matter what time of day it is.

“The introduction of this app is just one step in our plan to modernise how we do things and to bring Gus more in line with the parent company, Traction Finance, that has had its own fleet management app for many years.”
