New online tyre portal for company car drivers launched by Alphabet

Alphabet tyre portal, tyre replacement.

Alphabet has launched a new online tyre replacement portal for drivers in collaboration with Kwik Fit.

Company car drivers can arrange timed appointment to replace their tyres online or via an app and can have them fitted at their home or office via a mobile service or at a fast-fit centre.

Alphabet says the system not only ensures that drivers have the correct tyres available to them at the first visit, it also offers a choice of timed appointments at convenient times and locations for the driver. 

Furthjermore, if the driver has had tyres replaced previously or used the portal before, it auto-populates their vehicle's tyre size and rating to save even more time on subsequent visits.

Kit Wisdom, head of technical services at Alphabet, said: “The new portal approaches tyre replacement completely from the viewpoint of the driver and their needs.

“Many find the business of organising a replacement cumbersome and making it happen can be a bit of a chore. We’ve built the system to make the process as easy as possible for our customers’ drivers to make sure the tyres on their vehicles are safe.

“All they need do is enter their vehicle’s registration and then it’s just a few clicks - or taps on their smartphone screen - and the replacement is set up.

“There’s even a helpful animated film to guide drivers through the process, which includes handy tips to help less-experienced drivers check their tyres for wear-and-tear or damage.”
