At this moment in time, we would like to publicly state our commitment to continue building and developing both the image and infrastructure of the Kingdom.
We are taking this hands-on approach to developing these applications because a number of our readers have verbalized their disappointment in the growth rate of the economy. In fact they have gone so far as to say that our articles are full of enthusiasm, as opposed to action.
In an attempt to appease the disappointed critics we would like to say, “As you can see we at The KIN Consortium have developed applications for both the restaurant industry and now the auto industry. The aforementioned state of the art applications have literally put the economy of the KSA on the cutting edge of technology.”
The idea is to use all the tools at our disposal to facilitate transactions for both consumers and businesses; thus, vitalizing the local economy. 
In an attempt to stimulate the economy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we at The KIN Consortium are now focusing this week on the sales of cars, SUVs, and vans.
We have launched a new state-of-the-art Android application for the Abdul Latif Jameel (ALJ) Toyota Fleet.
Take a moment to imagine a scene where a Toyota salesman has the freedom to sell cars while sitting in a cafe after work.
The gentleman is merely having coffee with a client and they look out the window at the passing traffic on Tahlia street.
The client sees the new Sequoia and starts to comment on the size and power of the SUV, yet sadly traffic is moving so fast that he couldn’t get an eyeful of the vehicle.
The ALJ salesman looks to his friend and says take a look at it again, as he hands him his phone with the ALJ Android Application.
The client taps on the icon and the application opens immediately.
Suddenly, his eyes are glued to the screen as he is tapping on every make and model of the Toyota fleet.
The pictures are so rich with color and vivid detail that he asks the Toyota salesman for an appointment to test-drive the car.
Then he starts asking about the financing options and the colors that are available.
The salesman turns to his Android phone as he checks his calendar for a vacancy, so that he may meet with this client in the office.
In the above scenario, the application literally served as a portable showroom that is available 24 hours a day seven days a week.
It has a number of interactive features that are designed to be used as a tool for the sales force, an advertisement, a Toyota Center locator, a direct line to the 800 number, and a quick link to schedule maintenance.
The application is also full of interactive graphics that show every car, SUV, van, and commercial vehicle in the Toyota fleet.
It is designed to be as user friendly as possible.
When you tap the buttons on the screen they immediately expand and show you images of the interior and exterior of the latest models.
If you tap on the phone icon, then you can call the 800 number to ask questions.
If you tap on the maintenance button, then you will go directly to the website to schedule an appointment.
If you click on the Google Maps button then you will immediately be able to see where you are with your GPS and where the nearest Toyota center is along with their phone number.
This user-friendly state-of-the-art application will be run on HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Asus, Toshiba, Sony, and all the Android phones, tablets, pads, and computers.
The fact of the matter is that the majority of phones in the near future will be able to use this ALJ portal to access the 2011 database of products and maintenance services.
We would like to offer them our heart felt congratulations on this new Application, and we pray that their sales will rise exponentially as their sales force uses it as a portable showroom 24 hours a day seven days a week.
They can begin to e-mail and sms clients immediately with a designated web page URL kinconsortium.com/ALJ.apk, so that they may install the application and begin reviewing ALJ’s Toyota Fleet on their own respective android phones.
The aforementioned state-of-the-art applications have literally put the economy of Saudi Arabia on the cutting edge of technology.
It is just a matter of time before we build and customize the android applications for every industry in the region. The only question is who is next?
