The KRONE Smart Assistant is a groundbreaking solution for transport companies to make trailer-related processes more efficient and transparent. As a decision-maker in the transport industry, you want to manage your fleet optimally, work safely and efficiently with your subcontractors, reduce costs and at the same time increase the operational readiness of your vehicles. The KRONE Smart Assistant offers you exactly the right solution to achieve these goals.
At KRONE, we know that drivers want solutions that are simple and work right away. The KRONE Smart Assistant enables your truck drivers to easily, safely, and efficiently perform important trailerrelated tasks using a familiar messaging service such as WhatsApp, Telegram, or Viber. The innovative system utilizes vehicle-specific QR codes attached to the trailers to capture the condition of the vehicles and transmit information about them. With just a few steps, your drivers can document the condition of the trailer, including damages, defects, missing accessories, or other relevant information. The reports for the vehicle owner are provided in an intuitive customer portal.
The process is extremely simple: your drivers scan the QR code on the trailer using a regular smartphone. This opens a messenger chat where they can answer questions about the trailer's condition. They can respond with "Yes/ No" by simply tapping their fingers, make text entries, or take photos to document the trailer's condition. Once the information has been confirmed, the data is securely transmitted to the KRONE Smart Assistant customer portal.
Why should you use the Smart Assistant?
Efficient Communication and Transparency: Seamless communication between drivers, fleet managers, dispatchers, and other relevant individuals. You receive real-time information about the condition of your vehicles, allowing you to respond quickly and proactively address issues.
Cost Reduction and Time Saving: By capturing the trailer's condition quickly and easily, you can reduce costs associated with repairs, downtime, and damage claims. Automation and digitalization of processes save time and enable more efficient fleet management.

In addition to the current functionality that enables trailer handover via messenger, the Smart Assistant has great potential for future expansions and integrations.
