Goodyear improves eCasing retreading management system with new app

Goodyear’s successful eCasing retreading management system is being further improved by the introduction of the mobile phone app eCasing Mobile, which allows all users to access the system from their mobile devices more conveniently and quickly to ensure greater efficiency in the commercial vehicle tyre retreading chain.

eCasing is Goodyear’s web-based commercial vehicle tyre casing management system.  It is used right across the European region; not only by Goodyear, its retreading partners and dealers but also by truck, bus and coach fleets.  The new mobile version is available free of charge and is compatible with both iOS and android devices.  It is a further enhancement of Goodyear’s eBusiness B2B platform myway, offering users greater visibility, traceability and more up to date information both online and on mobile devices.

“With the new eCasing Mobile app, we have increased the versatility of our important eCasing retread management system,” said Grégory Boucharlat, Director Retread Operations Europe, Middle East and Africa at Goodyear Dunlop.  “Typical examples of eCasing transactions include fleets having their own casings retreaded and returned to them or casings being exchanged for retreads. The introduction of the mobile version of our successful eCasing is believed to be an industry first and increases the efficiency of our retreading offer for our customers.  It is a demonstration of Goodyear’s commitment to deliver industry leading commercial business solutions.”

The mobile version of eCasing makes transactions quicker and more convenient, particularly for those users away from the office or operating from a vehicle.  It is available free of charge but requires user accreditation from Goodyear; however all existing eCasing users will automatically receive immediate access.  The app will be introduced progressively throughout Europe.  The app supports all Goodyear retread business options; including amongst others Customer Owned Casing and Casing Exchange.

The development of the new mobile version of eCasing is the latest in a number of improvements to Goodyear’s commercial business solutions during 2016.  These include an upgrade to Goodyear’s fleet management system FleetOnlineSolutions (FOS) – the new eCasing Mobile app is an integral application within FOS Next Generation.
