Hunter Engineering Co. has added its new autonomous alignment inspection system, Quick Check Drive, to the HunterNet smart technology platform.
The connectivity between HunterNet and Quick Check Drive enables alignment results to be displayed automatically in seconds through Flightboard, a digital display of inspection readings that allows a customer to see results first-hand. In addition, service advisors can quickly review body damage-cam photos of vehicles, potentially saving shops thousands of dollars in questionable damage claims. Managers are able to generate inspection and opportunity reports as well.
Hunter’s Road Force Elite wheel balancer is also connected with HunterNet, allowing balancing trends, results and details to be easily reviewed virtually alongside wheel alignment and inspection results.
“When investing in new equipment, shops should strongly consider smart, connected equipment that provides real-time information to help customers and managers make informed, data-driven decisions,” says Alan Hagerty, product manager.
Upon its introduction in 2002, HunterNet provided real-time data to shops through equipment results, trends and management reports. Hunter says connected equipment allows businesses to be more productive and profitable through data-driven decisions.
Today, HunterNet supports thousands of connected Hunter machines, which send tens of thousands of results every day, while driving growth and identifying opportunities for businesses worldwide, according to the company.
