Autoglass recalibration service

Autoglass partners with Bosch to enhance ADAS recalibration service

Autoglass has partnered with Bosch to become the supplier of choice for its advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) recalibration service. 

The tools have a digital camera system that understands a car’s exact position and guides the technician through each step of the set-up process.

The company said the new technology increases in-house capabilities, meaning 99.4% of vehicles can be recalibrated in house, reducing the need for dealership referrals.

Tim Camm, technical training manager at Autoglass, said: “This is a significant partnership with Bosch, and one that will allow us to provide state of the art ADAS recalibration services across our business for years to come.

“A more advanced and efficient set-up process, along with more enhanced compliance reporting for our technicians, also means even better customer satisfaction and less downtime for every vehicle in need of attention.”

The company is rolling out the new tools in all its centres and will have completed UK coverage by January 2022.

FuelGenie app updates provide card detail and invoice functionality

FuelGenie app FuelGenie have added additional functionality to its mobile app to enable businesses to manage driver’s card details directly from the app.

The updates includes the ability to view the full card details including name on the card, vehicle registration and any card limits set, with the ability to edit the card details.

The app also has a new function to edit card details that require a new fuel card to be issued, which will result in a new fuel card being automatically generated and sent out to the business address listed on the account.

Businesses also now have the option to view cancelled cards, enabling them to keep a record of all the fuel cards that have been issued.

The updates also allow businesses to view and manage fuel invoices, including viewing current and past invoices listed by date, and downloading invoices to a mobile device in a PDF format.

Robert Pieczka, managing director at FuelGenie, said: FuelGenie is making constant improvements to its app to enable the very best customer service.

“The FuelGenie app is even easier to use with these latest updates, allowing SME’s and their drivers to benefit from low-cost fuel with no hassle.”
