Given the current situation now amidst easing up of the community quarantine, MINI Philippines launched its first virtual showroom that allows customers to find out about the MINI models they love the most, from the comfort and safety of their homes. Even with digital interactions, customers can experience the same excitement and vibrancy they have come to expect from the brand.
In the statement sent to THEPHILBIZNEWS, Willy Q. Tee Ten, President of MINI Philippines and Autohub Group of Companies said, “The MINI Online Showroom plays a significant role in how we engage with, and support, our customers and dealer partners.”
“It brings them closer together while reducing the threat of infection to zero. It is our responsibility to protect our valued clients and employees, and we will continue to study and evolve our business processes based on current needs and requirements,” Tee Ten added.
“Now more than ever, MINI will continue to lead the way by showcasing its pioneering nature – the ability to delight its fans regardless of the situation. We are truly excited to embark on this journey with our customers and we look forward to discussing all things MINI at their convenience,” the President of MINI Philippines concluded.
The new microsite https://secure.mini.com.ph/mini-online-showroom/ is now live and features detailed information on the inventory currently available (including the Conduction Sticker ending digit). The MINI Garage has a total of 42 vehicles now on sale at discounted prices until 30 June.
Customers can book online with a few clicks, can chat with a sales executive for more information, or even refer a friend (https://bit.ly/MINIReferral1). A test drive can also be arranged through the portal.
The ultimate vision, said Tee Ten, is to open an “easy payment gateway for customers to make their down payment.” The company expects the functionality to be activated by mid-July.
