In yet another attempt to expand its digital footprint in the country, the Indian counterpart of the Germany-based auto bigwig Mercedes-Benz has developed a unique application in association with Daimler Financial Services (DFS), called the ‘myMBFS’. Exclusively developed for iPhone and iPad users in India, this unique application will enable the users (customers & prospects) to locate the nearest Mercedes-Benz dealer, get in touch with a DFS Finance & Insurance Manager, find out a monthly payment amount on a vehicle of their choice and check current promotions from Daimler Financial Services.
Mr. Sidhartha Nair, Managing Director, Daimler Financial Services India Private Limited, commented, “Our customer base today, who aspires to own a Mercedes-Benz car, are technology savvy and are always in touch with the world on the go. Our ‘myMBFS’ application not only gives them an access to the world of Mercedes-Benz but also helps them in their purchase and finance decisions. This app will help us deliver our customer centric services, in the digital world, through devices to the palm of our customers. The fascination for innovative technology has always guided us to pioneer better ways to connect with the customer. This app is specifically tailored for India, ensuring that customers have access to information relevant to them.”
The application is compatible with devices running iOS 5.0 or later, including the new iPhone 5. Users can download the application for free from the Apple App store. Developed in the USA and Singapore; the ‘myMBFS’ App has been customized to suit Indian requirements like dual language functionality.
