Peterbilt's vehicle configuration and ordering computer program, Prospector, has been re-engineered and is now in use throughout the Peterbilt dealer network, Peterbilt Motors Co. announced.
Prospector allows customers to work with a Peterbilt dealership to configure and order vehicles custom-built to their exact specifications and business requirements, regardless of application. The newly released spec'ing tool helps ensure optimum compatibility for all component parts and through frequent, online updates, provides the most up-to-date spec'ing options available.
"As a custom truck manufacturer serving a wide array of markets, Peterbilt provides its customers with many possible vehicle configurations to help ensure they operate a vehicle that meets their needs," said Peterbilt assistant gm Dan Sobic. " Prospector helps ensure those needs are met by identifying the optimum vehicle configuration for an application, as well as account for all applicable highway and bridge laws." Sobic added that build specifications for all of a customer's previously ordered vehicles can be quickly retrieved through Prospector and used or modified to order new vehicles.
