KenolKobil has launched an app called K-Wallet which enables customers to track their fuel consumption, distance travelled, and find filling stations using a smartphone. The app also allows motorists to view prevailing prices and purchase and pay for fuel.
“With [the] increased use of smartphones and tablet computers, technology has made it very easy for people everywhere to access most products and services on the move,” Martin Kimani, KenolKobil general manager for Kenya stated. “We are modernising our customers’ fuelling experience by making the best out of the latest technological tools.”
During the launch, KenolKobil said customers who use the app will receive Sh2 discount for each litre of fuel purchased. The app also permits motorists to directly top at its service stations or via M-Pesa.
