Gabriel New Commercial/Heavy-Duty Smartphone Part Search Places Product Availability at Customers’ Fingertips

Gabriel announces the enhancement of its mobile part search with the addition of an all-new mobile Smartphone part search for commercial, heavy-duty truck, trailer or bus shocks.

Gabriel, the originator of the world’s first automotive shock absorber in 1907, announces the enhancement of its mobile part search with the addition of an all-new mobile Smartphone part search for commercial, heavy-duty truck, trailer or bus shocks.

“No one comes close to Gabriel’s commercial OE replacement coverage as it exceeds the closest competitor by 43 percent. With new parts being introduced all the time, the Gabriel heavy-duty mobile part search is another way Gabriel conveniently provides customers with the most current product information where and when they need it,” said Lisa Bahash, president and CEO Gabriel (Ride Control, LLC). 

Gabriel’s easy-to-navigate Smartphone search for heavy-duty vehicle shocks works identically to its full website search, allowing the customer to seek parts by make, series, OEM or Gabriel part number, or by competitor part number. It is available by accessing the Gabriel website (Gabriel.com) from most Smartphones. With the first click, results and photos appear showing available Gabriel Fleetline products and Gabriel GasSLX premium gas-cell design upgrade products, where available. With a second click on the selected item, a detailed product description with specifications, mounting information, and  “where used” listings appear.

Gabriel Fleetline is a direct OE replacement shock for heavy-duty trucks, trailers or buses, and is also offered as a cab shock. GasSLX, a premium upgrade to the OE and OE replacement options, is a three position adjustable shock absorber with industry leading gas-cell design. Gabriel is one of the only suppliers in the marketplace to offer this.

When customers access www.Gabriel.com from most Smartphones, the website senses this and automatically pulls up the Gabriel mobile part search, which has been optimized for viewability and usage ease for all iPhone, newer Blackberry and Droid platforms. Customers then chose either the light vehicle search or the heavy-duty search, or proceed to the full website. The mobile part search even includes a pop-up option to create an “app” icon on the customer’s Smartphone for quick future mobile part search access.

For additional questions on a specific product, the search quickly links customers to the Gabriel Answerman phone line for one-on-one answers and solutions. 

“Gabriel is the market leader in the commercial, heavy-duty shock absorber arena and our Fleetline and GasSLX lines’ coverage, quality and breadth are unparalleled. The Gabriel mobile Smartphone part search provides up-to-date availability and product information to our customers right at their fingertips using the most accessible method,” concluded Bahash.
