Volvo trucks issue chassis-specific driver manual as an app

19 August 2014 #CV Sector #News #Truck

Volvo Trucks’ driver manuals are now available in a new version on the internet and for smartphones and tablets. The idea is to always give customers, drivers and mechanics access to up-to-date, chassis-unique information irrespective of time and place.

Volvo Trucks customers receive a chassis-unique printed driver’s manual when they purchase a new truck. Now the manual will also be available in digital form with extended functionality.

“With our digital driver’s manual the user always has access to complete, up-to-date and specific vehicle information that is even available offline. The digital manual features tools that make it far simpler to find what you are looking for. It includes instructive films and images to show how the truck’s various functions can be handled in the best possible way,” explains Malin Ersman, project manager at Volvo Trucks.

The new driver’s manual can also contribute to increased vehicle uptime. Since the workshop engineers can immediately see exactly how the truck is configured, it is possible for them to respond more quickly to customer questions about various functions and how they should be handled.

Volvo Trucks’ new digital driver manuals are free of charge and will be available for the Volvo FH, Volvo FH16, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX models, with the exception of trucks built in South America. The new digital driver manuals are available both on the Internet and as apps for downloading to
