ARI launches Driver Insights app

ARI Driver Insights

ARI has launched its ARI Driver Insights app to give company drivers access to vital information about their fleet vehicle.

Available in the US for iPhones and iPads, the app enables drivers to monitor their vehicle’s information and will send important updates to the driver through push notifications. A version is being worked on for the UK.

Tony Candeloro, vice-president of product development and client information services at ARI, said: “Real-time notifications inform drivers of important events like overdue preventive maintenance, which we expect will spark drivers to take action sooner, extending the life of a vehicle and reducing its total cost of ownership."

The app allows drivers to manage vehicle maintenance and usage, check for upcoming service that may be due, and input their monthly business and personal mileage to ensure proper tax reporting.

Current ARI customers can access the app through the Apple App Store by searching 'ARI driver'. A version for Android will be introduced by the end of the year.

Drivers can use the same log-in credentials they use with their ARI Driver Insights account.

Once logged in, drivers will be greeted with a dashboard of their vehicle, showing its image and description, notifications, driver score, fuel, operating expenses, the last shop visited, and odometers.

By tapping 'notifications', drivers can see when the vehicle is due for preventive maintenance and other services. 'Last Shop Visited' is connected to Google Maps, so directions are easily accessible. Drivers can call the shop directly with another tap.

The ARI Driver Insights app also includes digital maintenance coupons, which can be emailed to the vendor directly from the app. This feature is linked to location services, so if the shop is found by the app, the email address will be automatically populated and can be sent with just one tap.
