Latest Schaeffler REPXPERT app update makes bonus point collection quick and easy
REPXPERT members have been asking for a simpler way to collect bonus points for a long time, so they will be pleased to know that their wishes have been granted with the latest Schaeffler REPXPERT app update.
The VIN and barcode scanning function has been expanded, so that it can now also read and process the complex codes on bonus coupons that come with most LuK, INA and FAG products. This allows garage owners and professional technicians to use the camera on their mobile device to simply scan and collect the points, which will be instantly added to their REPXPERT account.
The REPXPERT app is an increasingly popular way for users to access the invaluable platform, giving them instant access to application information, product updates, technical bulletins and lots more.
A recent update saw a VIN number reader added to the scanning function, which is now the fastest and easiest way of identifying the vehicle. If you don’t have the vehicle on site, you can still use the VRM lookup to quickly access the correct information. You can then cross check the parts when they arrive by scanning the barcode label, which will confirm the correct application info and provide direct links to any available product and service information.
Technical Manager, Alistair Mason, a familiar face to hundreds of mechanics at technical events and Schaeffler’s IMI certified training days, said: “The REPXPERT app is simply becoming more essential with every update. We are always asking the garage community to tell us what we can do to help them and improve our services, and the addition of the bonus coupon scanning function shows that we are listening.”
“Our colleagues at REPXPERT HQ in Germany are continuously working on developing the app and the main knowledge portal at www.repxpert.co.uk, and we will be bringing you some exciting news about a major update to the website and the bonus shop in the coming weeks.”
Around 3,000 technicians in the UK are using the REPXPERT app on a daily basis. To join them, simply search for ‘REPXPERT’ in the iOS or Google app stores. It is a completely free download, and users can login with their existing REPXPERT membership details or register directly from the app after installation.
