Schaeffler and Continental partner in commercial vehicle maintenance
The Automotive Aftermarket division at Schaeffler is a new partner of TruckOn, Continental’s digital booking platform for commercial vehicle repairs and services. The companies have launched their long-term collaboration by recommending each other’s programs to their respective workshops. REPXPERT workshops that register for TruckOn will receive extra points for the REPXPERT bonus program. In the future a filter function will be added that will let fleets search specifically through filters for workshops that are REPXPERT partners, thus giving them access to premium Schaeffler brands like LuK, INA and FAG. Each partner has already included a link to the other’s platform. In the long term Schaeffler and Continental even plan to offer a single sign-on so as to facilitate digital workshop management for their members. Workshops that belong to both online portals will then only have to log in once.
Over TruckOn, fleet managers and haulers can book workshop services online – quickly and reliably, across country borders or internationally, and around the clock. The services currently include tachograph testing, periodic inspection of trucks and trailers, clutch repair, wheel bearing repair and axle drivetrain repair. Fleet operators can use the platform, free of charge, to readily find workshops along their routes. Based on information at TruckOn and evaluations by other users, they can book their services online – reliably and efficiently. TruckOn lets workshops tap into new customer groups, digitalize their systems and simplify their processes. In addition, they receive important information in advance to prepare for the booked service appointment.
