Atlas Copco launches first in a series of mobile apps
Atlas Copco has announced the launch of a series of software apps for smart phones, tablets and other hand-held devices. The first in the series is an app supporting the company’s Underground Rock Excavation division. The app will be available from the Apple App Store at the end of April and from Google Play at the end of May. After downloading the free app, users will gain access to Atlas Copco’s wide range of underground face drilling rigs, loaders, trucks and other equipment.
The exclusive content in the app includes high resolution images of the products presented as 3D turntables, which enable the products to be viewed from all angles. The app will also feature video, technical data, case stories and a social news feed. In addition, all of the content can be synchronized and then accessed offline. A GPS function can automatically direct the user to the nearest Atlas Copco office, store or representative.
Paula Blamberg, vice president of marketing communications for the division, says, “Due to the staggering number of new mobile devices we now see in use, and knowing the capability of these devices, we see that this technology has huge potential to simplify the way our customers, the media and other important contacts can access our products. Information sharing has never been easier. You can easily pass on technical specifications or images with the touch of a button.”
