Yuasa have launched a brand new upgraded version of their industry leading online battery lookup system fit.yuasa.co.uk at Automechanika 2016. The fully updated, mobile optimised website which boasts a ground-breaking photo number plate lookup feature and live technical support was made live across Europe at the event in Frankfurt today.
Designed to help mechanics and technicians save valuable time and money, Yuasa’s powerful system has been remodelled to make it even more user friendly and ultra-fast. The system is completely free to use and can be accessed online at fit.yuasa.co.uk or by pushing a Yuasa USB Smart Button.
Users can find the right starter or auxiliary battery for all vehicles by simply taking a photograph of its registration plate on their device. The system then uses automatic number plate recognition to identify the vehicle and find the correct battery. Registration or VIN numbers can also be manually entered.
The system, which is already used by over 75,000 mechanics and technicians also features a rapid make/model search, a comprehensive battery cross reference search and advanced browse battery functions.
James Douglas, Marketing Executive at Yuasa battery Sales (UK) Ltd said: “Our brand new online battery lookup system is far more than just a battery finder. It is the most powerful, user-friendly and fastest battery lookup resource available anywhere.
“Along with having the widest coverage and greatest accuracy, we have developed lots of exciting advanced new features including photo number plate lookup and live technical support which allows users to chat to members of our technical team in real time whilst on the site.
“Yuasa are committed to being more than just a battery supplier. We are constantly looking at new initiatives to help our customers get the information they need, offer great customer service and sell more batteries. Our new mobile friendly battery lookup tool will save our customers valuable time and money by allowing them to find detailed battery and fitting information quickly.”
Battery replacement has changed significantly in recent years, and the procedures involved for new vehicles are increasingly more complex and time consuming. Yuasa’s new system displays a host of vital information such as battery type, fitting time and battery location in a clear and concise way. Furthermore, users can access detailed fitting instructions and battery information if required.
For vehicles with advanced technology such as Start – Stop the replacement battery must be the same specification as the OE battery, so the correct option will be displayed. For standard ignition vehicles the system will present Yuasa’s good, better and best options with the corresponding features and benefits. A useful tool for upselling.
