Kwik Fit has revealed that they are set to promote two new services at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham. The two services will be known as ‘Mobile7’ and ‘Fleet Web Booking tyre facility’.
After extending its reach into the vehicle servicing and MOT segment Kwik Fit saw fit to increase its penetration into the Light Commercial Vehicle sector as well which helped then gain a much broader audience due to the ever increasing amount of vans on Britain’s roads caused by E-commerce.
Kwik Fit now anticipates the launch of Mobile7 and Fleet Web Bookings, both designed to minimise fleet and driver inconvenience and maximise vehicle uptime, will lead to further growth in this area.
Fleet Web Booking has recently launched to fleet customers that use Kwik Fit’s tyre management service and enables drivers of those company vans – and cars – to make an appointment at a centre of their choice or use Mobile via smartphone, laptop, PC or tablet.
Fleet drivers enter their vehicle registration number and postcode. The Kwik Fit database will verify that it is a vehicle under tyre management and will validate tyre size and customer brand preferences against the known policy.
The database will check tyre stock availability, centre fitment slots available that are convenient to a driver’s location and offer the option of Kwik Fit Mobile fitment.
If tyres are in stock a list of the centres with fitment times available or Mobile times will be provided to the customer for next day replacement. If tyres have to be ordered, they will be delivered to the customer’s chosen centre location, ideally for next but one day fitment.
