Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based Pleasure-Way Industries, a leading manufacturer of Class B motorhomes announced Thursday (November 10) that it is equipping all of its 2012 chassis year models with RV|ID, the innovative location-based system that provides real-time mapping, reports, and alerts for high-value mobile assets.
Using GPS and wireless communications technology, together with a sophisticated software analytics engine and an online portal, RV|ID gives Pleasure-Way and its dealers’ new tools to efficiently and effectively manage inventory and improve customer support, according to a news release.
In addition, RV|ID-equipped RVs are “Smart RVs” that include the exciting new consumer service called myRV|ID. myRV|ID connects RV owners with their RVs and enables them to share their RV adventures with family and friends. It monitors RV batteries, detects theft, provides location information, and generates automatic trip journals, which can be enhanced with trip information, reviews, photos, and then shared with friends and family or posted to Facebook.
“We’re excited to be using RV|ID and offering myRV|ID to our customers.” stated Dean Rumpel, CEO of Pleasure-Way Industries. “RV|ID is yet another example of the ‘”Pleasure-Way Difference.’ In this case, we’re leveraging the latest technology to improve our business, help our dealers giving our customers a fun tool to track their adventures and remotely monitor their Pleasure-Way RV.”
“We’re proud to welcome Pleasure-Way on board,” stated Jon Corn, president of sales and business development for Red Lantern Labs, which offers RV|ID and myRV|ID. “RV|ID was designed to provide RV manufacturers and dealers with useful tools, real-time data, and critical alerts while myRV|ID was designed to enhance the RV ownership experience and make RVing even more fun. For manufacturers like Pleasure-Way and its dealers, myRV|ID is a value-add selling feature that will help these RVs sell faster and provide purchasers of Pleasure-Way RVs the latest in technology.”
