GCR Tires & Service, a business of Bridgestone Americas Inc., has launched a new Route Planner tool on its website. Powered by an enhanced Store Location Finder application, the Route Planner provides access to course intelligence to locate GCR stores along haul routes and select store locations based on their specific service needs.
The Route Planner enables fleets to plan ahead for long or short hauls, and identify GCR locations along their journey. Users can create customized routes by selecting how far they want to deviate to visit a store. The tool, which is fully integrated with Google Maps, allows users to share directions to their mobile device or with other drivers in the field, and save the route for later travel opportunities.
In addition to rolling out the Route Planner, GCR also has upgraded its Store Location Finder enabling fleets to go beyond searches based on zip code and choose a store location based on specific service needs. The enhanced Store Location Finder uses new customized service filters that include:
- DOT inspections;
- In-store alignments;
- Mobile alignments;
- Agricultural tire services; and
- Off-the road (OTR) tire services.
