Auto Windscreens has become the first national automotive glazing provider to sign up to the 1link Service Network e-commerce platform.
The development means that fleets will be able to include the buying of replacement glass for cars and vans within the standard service and maintenance procedures they operate online.
1link Service Network now interfaces directly with Auto Windscreens’ own IT systems to allow quotation, job approval and agreed invoicing process.
Nigel Davies, managing director at Auto Windscreens, said: “1link Service Network is used by almost every major leasing fleet and being able to provide glass through the platform provides a new and highly effective route for customers to access our services.”
Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, the company behind 1link, said that being able to provide automotive glazing through 1link Service Network was an important development.
He said: “Specialist automotive glazing is an element of SMR buying that has so far been largely absent from 1link Service Network and we are pleased to welcome Auto Windscreens to the platform.”
