Parts advice from an app

A new app could make life a lot easier for technicians unsure of what parts to use in repairs.

Called Comma Oil Finder and available on both Android and Apple devices, it’s claimed the app enables technicians to take a picture of a vehicle’s number plate to receive a recommendation of the most suitable Comma products for that vehicle. The app also gives access to information about a vehicle’s MOT and road tax status.

Mike Bewsey, sales and marketing director, said, ‘The rapid increase in the use of mobile devices for professional as well as personal and leisure interests shows no sign of abating. As the company that pioneered online application data by VRN, we’re always looking to embrace the latest information technology for the benefit and convenience of service technicians.’
