Press Release December 2016
MOBGEN is proud to announce that we took home two Gold awards from the MMA Smarties 2016 in London this November. The joint effort with Shell drove the Motorist App to the top spot, achieving gold for both Best App in Europe, and Best Mobile Payments.
The Shell Motorist App is available in 35 countries globally, 6 continents, in 18 languages, and connects to 15 back-end systems. The app keeps the user up-to-date with Shell loyalty offers, rewards, on site promotions, and the latest news and product information. The app makes it easier for users to collect points, receive personalised offers, find the nearest stations, and maintain their vehicles. The Shell Motorist platform was designed and created as a package of different business modules. The centralised content management system allows Shell to easily tailor the available content and answer to the different requirements of each market. It also connects the needs of each consumer to their unique environment without the need for App Store submissions.
“This is a great achievement as it recognises the significant team effort on Mobile over the last 5 years. The big benefactor here is our digital brand reputation. As we move our focus into enabling services like mobile payment onto Connected Car platforms, we give our OEM partners the confidence that we are the leader on Digital in our sector. With our partnership approach with PayPal, Apple Pay for B2C and our forthcoming Digital Euroshell API for B2B, it is proof that we can do big things together for our partners programmes.”
Senior Innovation Manager – Shell
“This is great recognition for the persistence, hard work, and amazing teamwork of everyone in our great Shell/MOBGEN Motorist team. Mobile platforms will lead the future of relevant digital services and engagement for retail clients, and the Shell Mobile Motorist Program is one of the leading global platforms in that respect. We’re confident we’re able to further improve, together with the Shell team, relevant mobile services and engagement for Shell’s customers the coming years.”
