SVI releases SA’s first vehicle armouring app

SVI Engineering, specialist manufacturer of armoured products, has released South Africa’s first vehicle armouring application for cell phones called SVI Mobile. If you need to know how much it will cost to add bullet resistance to your car, it is as easy as hitting the “Get Quote” button on the app. Maintenance requirements on your SVI armoured vehicle? Click the spanner button and take a picture of the concern before sending the report straight to the factory.  According to Jaco de Kock, the CEO of SVI: “It is important for SVI to embrace technology and give our clients exactly what they require. This led to the development of the SVI Mobile app.”

The SVI mobile app aims to provide someone interested in armoured vehicles all the information needed in an easy-to-use package. Short-cut buttons link to popular SVI content like videos, armouring advice and even quick access to emergency contact numbers. The full SVI website is also available through the app if more information on a certain product is desired. “SVI is leading the way in providing armouring solutions and the application is just another example” says Benny Jiyane, chairman of SVI. “The app is not just able to convey information, but it becomes an important tool for our customers to enhance the experience of owning an armoured vehicle”.
