General Motors upgrades in-car payment apps
General Motors has updated its OnStar system.It will be easier to do payments for everyone. Users will be able to make mobile payments and earn loyalty points using applications for their cars. Using a solution named AtYourService, powered by Sionic Mobile, customers with model-specific apps for Buick, GMC, Chevrolet and Cadillac cars can see nearby merchants, browse inventories and make purchases.
A second iteration of the application, which can be displayed on a car’s dashboard, is set to land in 2017. The new version will have better integration with merchants, notes GM, and will present offers and deals to drivers right in front of them on their dashboard.
