Are you fed up with having to sit in the rain in order to fill up your gas tank? Or, better yet, ever get stuck in the middle of the road with no clue as what went wrong with your car? Then Volvo’s got you covered.
Recently, the Gothenburg-based company has launched a new smartphone application which allows the users to access various convenience services like remote fuel delivery, on-site car washing, and field maintenance.
Bear in mind that the new Concierge Services app is only a pilot program, which means that it’s not available everywhere. In fact, the company said that program would be available to Volvo owners living in the San Francisco Bay are.
But wait! There’s even more. Not only you have to live in the San Francisco Bay area in order to test the program, but you must have either an S90 Volvo sedan or an XC90 SUB. The company declared that the Concierge Services app would be made available to approximately 300 lucky car owners.
The purpose of this new program is to connect Volvo car owners with various service providers. If successful, the program will become available nationwide.
So, how does it work? After you’ve enrolled in the program, you will receive an invitation to download the mobile application. Don’t worry too much about compatibility, because the platform was designed to work on both iOS and Android handsets.
Subsequently, your convenience service providers will receive a digital key that can be used only one time. This means that once the program is over, the key will expire, and they won’t be able to use it.
Now, imagine that it’s rainy outside, and you need to take a trip, but the gas tank is nearly empty. Surely the perspective of having to spend several minutes at the local gas station in order to fill up the gas tank is not that enticing.
With Volvo’s Concierge Services app, you won’t have to worry about this minor thing. Just fire up the application and order a remote fuel delivery. In just a matter of minutes, a representative from Volvo will come to fill up your car’s gas tank.
Need a quick car wash? No problem, because Volvo’s got you cover. Ditto goes for maintenance services.
If the Volvo Concierge Service app proves its worth in SF Bay area, then it will become available nationwide, Lex Kerssemakers, Volvo’s USA President declared.
