Twice as mobile: EFOY launches iPhone app and says thank you!

SFC presents a new, free EFOY app for iPhone and iPad
Consumers can now profit from the new 'introduce a friend' scheme for EFOY customers to thank them for their many years of loyalty

SFC Energy AG is setting a new example and saying 'thank-you' to its customers who have entrusted their mobile power supply to EFOY fuel cells. The company will shortly introduce a free app for iPhone and iPad users. This program makes it possible for owners of EFOY fuel cells to find the nearest fuel cell cartridge dealer in their area quickly and easily using Google Maps, no matter where they are: this new service covers the whole world. In addition, current product news, the benefits of EFOY fuel cells and manufacturer's information can also be accessed using the EFOY app.

At the start of the year, SFC also started an attractive customer scheme for EFOY fuel cells in the leisure sector. In this bonus scheme, when EFOY owners recruit a new customer, they receive a voucher that can be redeemed by many partners such as Media Markt and OBI. New customers, too, profit from this recommendation scheme: when they buy their EFOY fuel cell, they can purchase a 5-year extended warranty for just € 259, including VAT, instead of € 299. Private individuals have the opportunity to take part in this promotion from 15 January until 30 April 2011.

'At 20,000 fuel cells, we have sold more off-grid power supply units than any other fuel cell manufacturer. We are so successful because we don't just sell our customers a fuel cell, but a complete energy-supply solution to meet their individual needs,' said Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. 'It is important to us to always be close to our customers. Our new EFOY app for the iPhone and iPad, and the new EFOY bonus scheme, are a new way of expressing of this strong customer focus.'

For years, SFC has stood for eco-friendly, resource-conserving, off-grid energy in leisure, industry and defence applications for years. SFC’s wide range of products provides attractive individual solutions for both private and industry users requiring reliable mobile energy supply. SFC fuel cells supply fully-automated energy around the clock, regardless of season or weather. They are lightweight, quiet and emission-free. The corresponding fuel cartridges are available in over 1,500 points of sale throughout Europe, thereby ensuring self-sufficiency for weeks.

Visitors of the CMT in Stuttgart can see the EFOY fuel cell in operation from 15 to 23 January 2011 at the EFOY booth, in hall 7, booth 7D 32.
