Rolls-Royce Makes an App That's a Mix Between Facebook and Frontrow
Open-minded ka ba? Well, if you’re a Rolls-Royce owner, you can now tap into a very exclusive, very small clientele of multi-millionaires and billionaires to invest in your business. This is one of the things you can do in one of the most elite digital clubs in the world: Whispers.
While the name itself is reminiscent of a brand of feminine napkins, the digital platform allows new (sorry, pre-owned buyers, you’re not included) Rolls-Royce owners from the U.S., Middle East, and Europe (for now) to share ideas and networks, social contacts, and even business opportunities not just with Rolls-Royce Motor Car themselves, but with each other.
So yes, it’s sort of a like a Facebook minus, we presume, trolls and the jeje.
The platform, developed over two years ago was done under a cloak of secrecy—perhaps because these guys hold the nuclear launch codes or the cure to cancer or something. Now though, it’s out of the testing phase and available to Rolls-Royce owners in the three markets mentioned.
Aside from “privately communing with some of the world’s greatest minds,” the app connects owners to individuals or enterprises that can, among other things, help them build their own racetrack, book a private performance with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, or even smuggle you out of a musical instrument case (we kid you Carlos Ghosn, we kid). It can give owners access to events such as the Grammys, the Academy Awards, and the like.
The app itself is available for both iOS and Android, but log-in credentials will only given if you happen to purchase a Phantom, Ghost, Wraith, or Cullinan.
