Today's technology and the current need for a forward-thinking society have pushed different industries to evolve and adapt to fit the needs of the world today.
A good example is how shopping can now be done with ease through websites and mobile apps. From food and groceries to clothes, electronic gadgets and more – people can order almost anything online. There is no longer any need to get off the couch to shop as the things we need and want can be delivered right at our doorstep in just a few taps.
Getting things online has helped people stay safe by lessening their exposure to the outdoors. It has also saved people time since they no longer have to navigate traffic to the store and fall in line to check out their items. Indeed, online shopping has introduced people to a wonderful world of ease and convenience.
Now, aspiring car owners are getting the same option to purchase their new ride in a fast, convenient, and safe way as a car manufacturer is enabling their customers to do just that with a mobile app.
People now have the option to inquire about available models and financing terms as this mobile app has everything covered.
Mobility company Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has launched the myTOYOTA app this year and it is making it easy for aspiring car owners to see and buy the car they want within the app. It does not stop there, apart from helping new owners get the vehicle they want, existing owners can also use the app to get their car serviced.
Upon logging in to the app, customers are greeted with a neat and clear design that is user-friendly and easy to understand, even for those who are not tech-savvy.
Those dreaming of owning a Toyota or thinking of buying another unit can head on to the virtual showroom which offers a 360-degree view of all the models on Toyota's vehicle lineup. The preview comes with the car's model, price, specifications, and variations. To get a clear picture of the many features and details of a specific car, users can download the brochure which contains every pertinent information about the vehicle. It is like having a car agent without the need to actually talk to one.
Once the user has decided what model to get, they can start building their vehicle right on the app. Add accessories, service packages and insurance to complete the customization process.
For those who want to check if their budget is enough for the car of their dreams, a financial calculator is available in the showroom. There is also a handy 'search for promos' button, so they can view the latest discounts available for that dream car. Those who need to apply for financing can also do so through the myTOYOTA app.
Once the aspiring car owner has completed the order of their new ride, they can check the status of the order process in the app.
The myTOYOTA app also continues to serve car owners as they take their new ride home. The app safely stores car information, such as the car's chassis number, certificate of registration, warranty registration, vehicle sales invoice, and vehicle delivery note, which can be easily accessed whenever the car owner needs them. The information stored in the app will serve as the car owner's backup in the case that they can’t find their hardcopy of these certificates.
Current Toyota car owners can also use the app to receive maintenance reminders and directly book an appointment at the Toyota Service Center. It also prompts customers to renew their car insurance and view their e-policy with timely alerts and notifications sent right to the app's inbox.
The myTOYOTA app allows drivers to discover Toyota Genuine Accessories and conveniently order them online. When it is time to upgrade, the app can assist the owner in trading in their car for another one.
From car buying, product and service inquiries, and financing computation to service appointments, sourcing accessories, trade-ins, and more, owning and maintaining a car is now as easy as shopping for essentials online.
To try an elevated Toyota ownership experience and maximize the convenience and benefits of their ride, car owners only need to download the myTOYOTA app on Google Play for Android users or App Store for iOS users and register to create an account.
