East African battery supplier Chloride Exide today launched PowerLast app for Android smartphones dedicated to help motorists locate the Company’s dealers, the closest service stations and ATM machines in a move expected to double up the firm’s sales and as well help stranded motorists.
The app also has traffic updates and motoring safety tips, notifications of the date for car service and battery checks, insurance and driving licence renewals.
Speaking at this event David Kinuthia, the Company’s Battery Sales Manager, said, “In order to keep up with the fast moving internet world, we are ensuring that our products are visible on the digital platform. Our PowerLast App will help us to interact directly with our customers.”
“The PowerLast App features the Chloride Exide “Dial a Battery” mobile service to deliver batteries by motorcycle to stranded motorists quickly within Nairobi and its environs. This provides customers with a seven day from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. battery assistance service.”
Guy Jack, the Managing Director of ABM, added, “For the past 50 years we have been manufacturing high quality batteries. The production of the Chloride Exide PowerLast MF proves that we produce batteries which conform to international standards.”
