KYB Europe has launched a new support tool at Auto mechanic. The tool is the latest in a portfolio designed to help make it easier for technicians to fit shock absorbers, coil springs and mounting kits.
KYB product boxes will soon display a QR code next to the part number. Anyone fitting this part will be able to scan the QR code using a smart phone, via any scanner application which can be downloaded free of charge from the smart phone provider. They will be offered a choice of information to help them with the fitting of that part.
The information includes: fitting videos (where available), fitting instructions (specific to that vehicle application), common information for fitting shock absorbers and coil springs, plus a visual inspection prompt. More useful information will be added next year.
The project launches with 700 references and will grow quickly over the next few months. It will also become integrated into KYB Europe’s website, so that technicians who do not have access to a smart phone can still use the support for fitting KYB parts.
KYB has introduced a QR code on some of it’s parts. This is one of a number of tools to help make it easier for technicians to fit shock absorbers, coil springs and mounting kits.
To use it, you need to download a (free) QR scanner app onto your smart phone. You then scan the QR code on the box whenever you see the spanner icon. You can find a QR code reader on the App Store.
When you scan the code, you will be offered 4 choices, depending on what is available for that application: fitting video, fitting instructions, common information, visual inspection.
