Pronto adds technology partner

May 6, 2015

The National Pronto Association has announced its endorsement of Bolt On Technology LLC, a provider of software solutions for the independent automotive repair industry.

Pronto has 95 independent wholesale distributors with 251 regional warehouses throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This network supports 59,000 service centers.

David Wofford, National Pronto Association director of sales and national accounts, says the Pronto network is the perfect complement to Bolt On Technology’s products, which are part of the Pronto Smart Choice Advantage.

The ProntoSmart Choice Advantage also features a 24-month parts and labor warranty, online training and ASE certification reimbursement, as well as roadside assistance for customers.

Wofford says the partnership with Bolt On Technology is a way to provide “cutting-edge technology to service centers to make them more productive.”

“The shops are not unlike most companies where they’re always being asked to do more with less personnel,” Wofford says. He says the company’s mobile technology enables shops to “communicate with the consumers under the consumers terms – which is email and text messaging.”

Frank Dragoni, director of national sales and corporate partnerships for Bolt On Technology, says that gaining Pronto’s “stamp of approval” would help increase awareness and reach of Bolt On’s automotive software solutions.

National Pronto Association is a North American shareholder owned organization headquartered in Grapevine, Texas.
