Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 29, 2012
In the past, Sixt made technological leaps forward by implementing a mobile website that could be accessed via mobile phones and PDAs. The car rental company again made its customers lives easier by creating the iPhone® and iPad® app that allows reservations to be made from Apple® devices. Sixt also brought easy booking to the Blackberry® and Android® phones, demonstrating that their customers global mobility was one of the companys top priorities. With the launch of the new Windows Phone 7® app, Sixt Rent A Car has proven once again why it is Germanys number one car rental company.
The features of this particular Windows Phone 7 SIXT app have been completely revised and updated in order to make booking faster, simpler, and more convenient. However, the new application not only allows customers to book a car rental via a smartphone, but it also provides a number of other convenient services. The app has a GPS-based, branch locator function, which pinpoints the location of the nearest Sixt Rent A Car branch, giving the viewer the address, hours of operation, and even a map of the quickest route. Signing up with MySixt allows clients to manage their Sixt account from their Windows Phone 7, which includes adding, canceling, and confirming reservations.
On top of the number of benefits previously mentioned, the new app also provides customers with the option of renting a car using a QR code. After a reservation has been booked, users will be given the QR code that allows for efficient car rental pickup. Upon arrival to one of the hundreds of Sixt Rent A Car locations throughout the world, the client simply presents the QR code for scanning, and the necessary paperwork is completed.
SIxt Rent A Car provides a variety of automobile rentals for clients in 105 countries across the world. Because of the companys diverse clientele, the app is available in German, English, French, and Spanish. Designed in the Windows-specific Metro language, it features the live tiles (or icon system used as a visual reference) for frequently used applications.
Sixt realized and met their customers demands for easy, on-the-go rental car bookings. The SIXT app gives customers the freedom and ability to reserve a car rental anytime, anywhere. For instructions on downloading the SIXT app for your Windows Phone 7, or any other smartphone including the iPhone and Androids, visit the Sixt Rent A Car website.
