Muscat: Shell announced the launch of the Shell Motorist's App in Oman, its latest mobile innovation for Apple and Android operating systems.
The new app, which is available in 30 countries around the world, will give users access to information whether driving in Oman or abroad. The Shell Motorist's App will offer a number of new functions specifically designed to help motorists plan their journey and keep on top of their vehicle's maintenance. These functions include:
An interactive map showing the location of the nearest Shell station. Users can also refine their search by fuel type or by the availability of certain onsite amenities, such as ATMs or toilet facilities.
A brand new route planner service allowing drivers to plot and view their journey in the following countries; Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, UK, Turkey, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Canada, USA, Thailand, South Africa, Australia and now Oman.
A motoring reminders calendar where drivers can set a series of alerts for up to three different vehicles. These include reminders of vehicle registration and insurance renewal deadlines; vehicle servicing alerts; and prompts to conduct general vehicle maintenance checks.
A 'news alerts' section showing the very latest Shell promotions, forecourt offers and product news.
Mohammed Al Balushi, country manager, Retail Sales and Operations said, "Shell Oman has always been a pioneer in bringing and launching new programmes and initiatives in the market that aim to serve and support our motorist, and the motorist application is another initiative that will enable us to provide up to date information to our customers.
The Motorist's App will make it easier and more rewarding to be a Shell customer. For the first time via a Shell app, drivers will have access to up-to-date information in 30 different countries, helping them plan their journeys more efficiently, maintain their vehicles and make the most of Shell facilities and customer offers."
