Safelite AutoGlass® Launches iPhone and Android Apps for Easy Customer Accessibility

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - Safelite AutoGlass®, the nation's largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services, recently launched apps for iPhone and Android smartphones. Safelite® now has apps available to more than 80 percent of the smartphone market. According to Nielsen market research, more than 50 percent of all mobile phones in the United States are now smartphones.

Much like the Safelite.com website, the app provides customers with a simple way to assess damage and schedule an appointment. The app covers four types of damage: chipped windshield, cracked windshield, broken side window and broken rear window.

The app helps the customer assess the damage and find out what work needs to be done to fix the glass. The customer can find a Safelite AutoGlass® location by entering a city name or zip code or the app will use their current location and automatically provide with the details of the nearest Safelite® facility.

"This is not only an easy way for our customers to reach us, but to find the nearest Safelite AutoGlass® location and schedule service where it's best for them," said Jennifer Kielmeyer, web and emerging technologies strategic marketing manager. "Smartphones are becoming more popular every day and these apps are another way for us to delight our customers."

Click here to visit the iPhone app page or here for the Android page. Smartphone users can still visit the Safelite® website through their smartphone browser without the addition of an app just by visiting www.safelite.com (or m.safelite.com) from their desktop.
