San Diego-based Audatex North America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Solera Holdings Inc., a claims solutions provider serving the automotive industry, launched a new iPhone app for AutoWatch, its web-powered repair tracking solution.
The new app follows the July introduction of an AutoWatch Android app and is available now as a free download to all AutoWatch customers via iTunes and the iPhone App Store.
AutoWatch allows vehicle owners to view the progress of their repairs online. Repairers use the solution daily to upload and post digital photos and the latest vehicle repair status information to an interactive website, keeping customers up to date through completion of the job.
Now, repair facilities can upload this same repair status information via their iPhones – whether they're away from the office or working on the shop floor. At the same time, vehicle owners can choose to receive AutoWatch vehicle status updates on the Web, via email or text message, and can even share updates with friends via Facebook.
