One of the most important reference tools for a fleet manager has been freed from the desktop and now fits easily in a pocket! NAFA's Online Buyer's Guide, which lets fleet managers locate the products and professional services they need for their job, is now available as a free app for the iPhone, Blackberry, and iPads.
The Mobile Marketplace App is a user-friendly tool that lets you quickly find businesses that offer education and training, fleet management services, manufacturing and sales, parts and equipment, personnel products and services, professional products and services, and technology that can help make your job easier. Whether you're looking for a GPS/vehicle navigation system, legal services, or paint protection for your vehicles, the Mobile Marketplace App has exactly what you need wherever you go!
"The Mobile Marketplace App is our way of delivering great service literally right into the hands of our Members and Affiliates as well as the entire world," said NAFA's Executive Director, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. "The real beauty of this app is that is has a global reach. As a fleet manager, no matter where you are, you can now find a product or service with a few flicks of your finger. As a service provider, this means you are now being exposed to a vast population never before reached. And it's free! How can you beat that?"
Users can quickly search by products/services, company, keyword, or through an advanced search that includes the ability to locate businesses within their immediate area or within a selected proximity. Results include individual contact information, company/product description, phone, email, web address, and even a Google mapping feature that shows you exactly where the business is located.
The Mobile Marketplace App is a dramatic improvement over printed industry directories since the information in the app is always up-to-date and can instantly put you in touch with contacts via a phone call or email. It's another example of quality products and services from NAFA designed to help fleet managers make their jobs easier.
You can download the Mobile Marketplace App for free from the iPhone App Store, via Itunes (search for Naylor Mobile Marketplace), or from the Blackberry app store (search for "mobile marketplace.")
