[Kenya] KenolKobil launches fuel management mobile app
Oil marketer KenolKobil has launched a new fuel application, K-Wallet, an easy-to-use fuel management app that adds convenience to both individual and corporate customers.
The K-Wallet app allows customers to purchase fuel and non-fuel products, locate KenolKobil stations and services, view current fuel prices, keep track of their vehicles' odometer readings and keep track of fuel spend. In addition, K-Wallet customers get to enjoy a discount of Kshs 2 for every litre of fuel purchased.
Speaking at the launch, KenolKobil's General Manager for Kenya, Mr. Martin Kimani, said, "With the rise of smartphones and tablet computers, technology has made it very easy for people everywhere to access most products and services on the move. We are modernizing our customers' fueling experience by making the best out of the latest technological tools:
"Therefore, we developed the K-Wallet App to help meet and exceed our customers' expectations, while maintaining our commitment to improve and increase quality and total value of our products and services," he added.
K-Wallet is one of its kind in the region; it is the only fuel app that allows the customer to top up directly at the KenolKobil service stations or via M-Pesa using a pay bill number.
"I have no doubt that this innovation will go a long way in giving motorists and Kenyans great convenience as they continue to consume KenolKobil products and services. 1 would also wish to commend KenolKobil for their milestone in introducing the fuel mobile app into the Kenyan market and wish them great success on this new product," said the Principal Secretary State Department of Petroleum, Mr. Andrew Kamau, CBS, who was the guest of honor at the event.
