Volvo Trucks first on the market with chassis-unique driver handbook as an app



Volvo Trucks’ driver handbooks are now available in a new version on the Internet and for smartphones and tablets. The idea is to always give customers, drivers and mechanics access to up-to-date, chassis-unique information irrespective of time and place.

Today Volvo Trucks customers receive a chassis-unique printed driver's handbook when they purchase a new truck. Now the manual will also be available in digital form with extended functionality.

"With our digital driver's handbook the user always has access to complete, up-to-date and specific vehicle information that is even available offline. The digital manual features tools that make it far simpler to find what you are looking for. It includes instructive films and images to show how the truck's various functions can be handled in the best possible way," explains Malin Ersman, project manager at Volvo Trucks.

The new driver's handbook can also contribute to increased vehicle uptime. Since the workshop engineers can immediately see exactly how the truck is configured, it is possible for them to respond more quickly to customer questions about various functions and how they should be handled.

Volvo Trucks' new digital driver handbooks are free of charge and are available for the Volvo FH, Volvo FH16, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX models, with the exception of trucks built in South America.

The new digital driver handbooks are available both on the Internet and as apps for downloading to smartphones and tablets from AppStore and Google Play.
