Shock and strut manufacturer KYB Americas Corp. has released its first mobile app titled KYB Mobile Resource.
KYB initially developed this new app as a way to get catalog information to end users. During development, the KYB Mobile Resource platform expanded and allows KYB to add product data, pictures, installation tips and other information instantaneously.
The KYB Mobile Resource app offers several methods to get accurate KYB product information, including vehicle make, competitive cross reference and KYB part number lookup.
One of the app’s biggest features is the ability to search by VIN code. For camera-equipped smartphones and tablets, the user will have the choice to either use the app’s camera scanner feature on the vehicle’s VIN barcode or type the VIN in directly.
“When we started developing KYB Mobile Resource we focused on what would be most important for the end user,” says KYB Marketing Manager Kyle Freund.
“Offering different ways to get accurate catalog information is critical, but we saw this as an opportunity for the app to become an extension of the KYB brand experience. By offering multiple high quality product photos, information and installation tips, we are enhancing how people interact with KYB.”
The KYB Mobile Resource is free and currently available for most smartphones and tablets. To download, users can keyword search for KYB via the user’s device app store.
