Find and book the perfect rental car all through a mobile phone

Mar 25, 2008, 01:00 ET from Netbiscuits

    RESTON, Va., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Sixt provides rental cars for any
 situation, whether for a summer holiday or for a business trip -- and now
 all Sixt services are available via mobile phone. Germany's multi-country
 car rental provider used the Netbiscuits platform to create a web portal
 specifically tailored for mobile phones. This portal enables cars and
 services to be booked from anywhere and at any time. Web content is
 optimized and supplied in eight languages to more than 5,000 types of
 mobile devices in 85 countries around the world.
     Everybody knows what it feels like: a frantic glance at the time when
 the train you are waiting for doesn't turn up due to a strike; or the sigh
 when the boxes don't fit in your car during a house move. Often a rental
 car is the perfect solution to cope with certain situations -- and
 preferably at the spur of the moment and without much effort. Netbiscuits
 helped Sixt implement the optimal solution for such needs with its mobile
 booking portal. Versatile, individualized options are provided through
 short booking procedures, low loading times for web pages, multi-language
 ability and optimal design for mobile devices. The portal remains
 independent of network providers and compatible with almost all mobile
 telephones, operating systems and browsers across the world. Unlimited
 content can be provided with the Netbiscuits technology and thus can
 perfectly accommodate requirements on mobile portals.
     Karsten Willrodt, Head of Marketing at Sixt, explains, "More and more
 people are using the Mobile Internet as a service platform for all areas of
 life. As the innovation leader in car rentals, we want to move our
 customers forward as easily as possible and have therefore decided to
 provide our services via mobile phone. Thanks to Netbiscuits, we have been
 able to realize a mobile portal that brings a quick and straightforward way
 to finding and booking the perfect rental car via mobile phone to our
 customers across the world."
     Michael Neidhofer, CEO of Dynetic Solutions, the company behind
 Netbiscuits, says, "Netbiscuits technology helped Sixt develop a mobile
 booking portal that is perfectly suited to the requirements of mobile phone
 users and provides a true Internet feeling. Functionality, design and user
 friendliness are fine-tuned to suit mobile phones. Content is optimally
 shown on almost every mobile device across the globe. We are pleased that
 Sixt, another international Netbiscuits customer, was convinced by our
 tailor-made one-fits-all solution."
