“The advantage of combining Truck Stop Coupons and TRANSFLO Express scan locations is total convenience for the drivers,” said Bob Helms, Pegasus TransTech chairman and CEO. “On their iPhone, drivers can quickly spot truck stops along their route and in their preferred network where they can scan their delivery paperwork and get discount coupons for their personal and business needs.”

When drivers open the application, it shows truck stops within a 50-mile radius of the phone’s location. At a quick glance, the trucker can see whether the truck stop offers TRANSFLO Express truck stop scanning. The TRANSFLO Express logo appears along with the truck stop’s address and phone number.

To see where the truck stop is located, drivers tap the "MAP" button and the location will plot on the map as a push pin.

For driving directions from the iPhone location to the truck stop, a driver taps the pushpin and it will quickly provide the address of the truck stop, then tap the blue arrow on the address and the route from the truck stop to the phone will appear on the phone. If a driver then taps the "start" button on the top right of the screen, it takes him into turn by turn directions.

Once a driver uses the new iPhone app to locate a truck stop, he or she can click to see specials and coupons that are available that day.

Versions of the Truck Stop Coupons app will be available in upcoming months for the Blackberry and Android smart phones.
