Audi to introduce roadside assistance smartphone app for the U.S.
Audi of America announced today that it will be releasing a new Audi Roadside App for users of the three major mobile device OSs. The app will be available for free download on each respective app market.
The app takes advantage of the customer’s pre-registered vehicle information, smartphone GPS functionality, and an intuitive interface, to more efficiently facilitate communication with Audi’s roadside assistance partner, Allstate Roadside Services.
The Audi of America Roadside Assistance program offers consumers access to a team of dedicated service representatives and a nationwide towing network for four years from warranty activation date. Owners of older models may still use the app, though Allstate Roadside Services fees would apply.
“With this technology, Audi is making a valuable service far easier for customers to access said David S. Tait, General Manager, Service Operations, Audi of America. “Connecting Audi drivers to our Roadside Assistance Program, and its safety and service offerings is now literally at their fingertips.”
