Instructional Technologies Inc., providers of training solutions for the transportation industry, has introduced the new Pro-Tread Mobile App.
Available through the Apple App store and Google Play for Android, the Pro-Tread Mobile App is designed for drivers and warehouse employees with mobile devices. They can access assigned courses and avaialble libraries using the same login used for Pro-Tread online training.
The app is included free with Pro-Tread accounts that use the Sentix platform, ITI’s recently introduced Learning Management System for scheduling, tracking, verifying and managing training. Centralized controls in Sentix apply simultaneously to the Mobile App and Pro-Tread to enable:
- Integration with management-approved app lists and on pre-configured mobile devices
- Lesson assignments for specific users or open access to all lesson content
- Instant recording of lesson starts, progress and completion, ensuring users can continue lessons from the same point they left off either online or on their mobile devices
- Switching between online and mobile devices without losing their place in the lesson
“With the Pro-Tread Mobile App, carriers are able to give drivers options for when, where and how to complete training,” said Aaron Purvis, chief technology officer of ITI. “Custom, compulsory and company specific training from ITI can be completed on mobile devices or on a computer. This new mobile platform allows employees to meet training, safety and compliance needs with the tools fleets are already providing for ELD, routing, inventory and other fleet management needs.”
With the Pro-Tread Mobile App there are no in-app purchases or outside links. Device settings can prevent using cellular data to download or stream content and lessons are cleared from the device cache upon completion, freeing up memory space.
