In today’s fast-paced business world, fleet managers face the challenge of maintaining safety and efficiency while keeping costs down. One important factor is ensuring that their trucks and buses are equipped with the right tyres, and that they are properly inflated. Continental,, has now made this task easier with its new TireTech mobile app for truck and bus tyres.

The Continental TireTech app provides fleet operators, dealers and service technicians with the latest information on tyre performance and maintenance. Available for free on both iOS and Android, the app is a technical advice tool designed to help users select the optimal tyres for their vehicles and keep them properly inflated. It is an extension of the company’s existing TireTech app for agricultural tyres, and features content in multiple languages that can be easily configured to meet users' individual needs.

One of the key features of the Continental TireTech app is its integrated Pressure-Load Calculator. This powerful tool helps users determine the correct tyre pressures for each vehicle based on its axle load and tyre size. The app also provides a database of technical tyre data and a library of supporting images, allowing users to quickly and easily access information on Continental's full range of tyres for commercial vehicles. In addition, the technical data can be accessed offline, making it ideal for use in remote locations.

Catherine Loss, Head of Technical Customer Services EMEA at Continental, explained the benefits of the new app: “With the Pressure-Load Calculator, fleet managers, technicians and tyre retailers are able to determine the optimal inflation pressure for their tyres, depending on the application. The Continental TireTech app helps to increase the efficiency of a fleet and reduce tyre operating costs. The app also contributes to lowering emissions significantly, thanks to the correct pressures helping to reduce rolling resistance. This makes the Continental TireTech app another building block of Continental's holistic Lowest Overall Driving Costs (LODC) approach.”

The app also includes a contact form, allowing users to directly reach Continental's technical service team for additional support. This customer-focused approach has been welcomed by fleet operators and service technicians alike, who have praised the app's ease of use and relevancy.

"With the Continental TireTech app, we are continuing to digitalise tyre maintenance services," Loss added. "Our technical service team is excited to expand the functionalities of this app, complementing our existing customer offering."

Overall, the Continental TireTech app is a valuable tool for fleet operators and service technicians looking to improve the safety and efficiency of their vehicles. Its powerful features, combined with its ease of use and customer-focused approach, make it a must-have for anyone responsible for maintaining commercial vehicles.
