New Apple iPhone Financial App from Mercedes Benz
The branch therefore becomes the first automotive financial services company to launch personalized and convenient account management features. The new iPhone app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or on iTunes online store.
To benefit from the aforementioned services, customers will first have to register online at Mercedes-BenzFinancial.com to access the account management features of the app. Detailed instructions are available here.
Customers won't have to worry on the security of their private data, as the company says that it uses secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect customer information during transmission. "Mercedes-Benz Financial respects the privacy of its customers and is committed to protecting their personal information," a company statement says.
However, all iPhone and iPod touch users, even those who are not Mercedes-Benz Financial customers, will be able to locate the nearest Mercedes-Benz authorized dealer, contact a customer service representative and see what's new from Mercedes-Benz Financial.
"We recognize the need for multiple communication channels in today's mobile environment," stated Franz Reiner, Vice President, Mercedes-Benz Financial. "The iPhone App provides our customers with another means to communicate with us and is a natural extension of the account management functions already available on www.Mercedes-BenzFinancial.com."
Mercedes-Benz Financial announced that it will support the launch with a marketing campaign titled "The coolest way to pay."
