155560053727974.pngPilot Flying J, the largest travel center network in North America, recently launched a new mobile app, targeting RV customers and other travelers.

"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," says Mike Rodgers, senior vice president and chief strategy and information officer at Pilot Flying J.

"We know drivers are always looking for convenient and reliable platforms that make their lives easier while on the road, he says. “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. These features include:

• 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.
