KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J has launched its new mobile app.
With features specifically geared toward the professional driver as well as the auto traveler and RV customer, the app is designed to make travel easier for everyone on the road, according to Mike Rodgers, senior vice president and chief strategy and information officer.
Developed with drivers in mind, Rodgers said the new Pilot Flying J app saves users time and money with a more personalized experience tailored to drivers’ type of travel, location, preferences and needs.
“By focusing on the moments that matter most to our guests, we designed our new mobile app to meet the needs of the driver, whoever and wherever they are on their journey,” Rodgers said. “We know drivers are always looking for convenient and reliable platforms that make their lives easier while on the road. Delivering an intelligent interface with expanded capabilities, our new app allows us to personalize, simplify and improve the guest experience while navigating the highways.”
The updated Pilot Flying J app features a streamlined onboarding that allows users to self-select their driver profile, such as professional driver, auto traveler or RVer.
Based on that selection, the home screen and features are then customized to meet the drivers’ needs based upon geographic location, preferred stops and amenities.
Rodgers said these features include:
- Pros of the road. While on the road, professional drivers can call Pilot Flying J Truck Care at the push of a button, easily plan their routes with improved location listings and saved preferences and also reduce time searching for parking with Prime Parking reservations. Recognizing when professional drivers arrive on property, the modified home screen delivers time-saving features like mobile fueling, shower reservations and viewing saved offers. Additionally, the new message inbox and transaction history simplifies doing business from the road.
- Auto travelers. The enhanced trip planner makes planning a road trip easy, helping to find and receive directions to Pilot and Flying J locations, view amenities, fuel prices and more. Guests can also save money with the app, including a 3-cent gas or auto diesel discount and exclusive offers on favorite food items and drinks when the app is used at the time of purchase.
- RVers. Finding locations with RV amenities is a breeze with the new RV home screen that provides recommended stops with RV fueling lanes, dump stations and propane refills. Good Sam Club members receive exclusive promotions and deals to save on fuel, dumping fees, propane and more. To learn more about RV services, visit https://pilotflyingj.com/rv-services/.
