Sixt rent a car Windows Phone 7 app
Sixt rent a car launches new app for Windows Phone 7
- Scores of handy functions, from locating stations to hiring via barcode
Munich, 17 July 2012 – Sixt rent a car, Germany’s number one car rental company, has now launched an app for customers with a Windows Phone 7 smartphone. Customers can use the new app to reserve Sixt cars in 105 countries around the world. The app’s features have been completely revised so that the booking process is now simpler and faster, and the smartphone program is available for download at Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace.
Sixt’s new app does a lot more than just help you reserve a car. For example, its station locator shows how far away the nearest Sixt station is and also features a placename-based search option. When the app finds a Sixt station, it displays its location, address and opening hours and also displays a map with the best route to the station. Customers can also use the app to access their personal Sixt profile or company account and so manage existing reservations.
You can also use the new app to rent a car via QR code. When users finish booking a car, our system sends a QR code straight to their smartphones, and when they want to pick up their car, all they have to do is present this code for scanning at the station. This does away with the need for all the paperwork and fuss normally entailed in hiring a car, so it only takes a moment before Sixt customers who use our QR code booking system have the keys to their car in their hand.
Our new app is available in German, English, French and Spanish. Designed in the Windows-specific Metro language, it features the live tiles system for frequently used apps. The app has also been subjected to usability lab tests which evaluate just how easy it is to use. Now that we have created an app for Windows Phone, Sixt customers can book cars using all of the commonly used operating systems – this is further proof of how we are leading the way in smartphone- and tablet-based car hire services. A host of additional apps are available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, Bada and WebOS.
