RAC gets Nebula going

Nebula Systems says it’s on target to launch its new diagnostics platform for independent garages in September, after MECH5 was successfully introduced at Automechanika Birmingham.

Nebula, which was formed in 2013 to harness the combined expertise of Maverick Technology (UK) Ltd and DEC Automotive of Argentina to work on next-generation cloud-based diagnostics and data systems, was acquired by RAC in March.

Speaking at the time, RAC Telematics managing director Nick Walker said the acquisition would ‘lead to the RAC moving from a reactive, to a proactive and ultimately predictive breakdown service.’

Andrew Steer, CEO of Nebula, said the deal would ‘give us the massive boost we have been looking for so that we can accelerate the development of our own exciting and disruptive aftermarket projects.’
