The app will be available for download on the Google Play Store for Android users and on the apple app store for iOS users, and will provide a simple interface for easy navigation. It will offer LAUGFS customers with easy access to a range of products and services offered by LAUGFS, from LPG and consumer goods, to leisure and car care products and services.
