Hunter Engineering Co. has announced advancements to its online business intelligence tool, HunterNet.
First introduced in 2002, HunterNet provides real-time data to shops through equipment results, trends and management reports allowing businesses to be more productive and profitable through data-driven decisions, Hunter says.
Hunter’s new autonomous alignment inspection system, Quick Check Drive, is connected with HunterNet. Alignment results are displayed automatically in seconds through Flightboard, a digital display of inspection readings that allows a customer to see results first-hand. Advisors can also 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.
With recent advancements, Hunter’s Road Force Elite wheel balancer is now also connected with HunterNet, allowing balancing trends, results and details to be reviewed virtually with Hunter’s wheel alignment and inspection technology in HunterNet.
“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, Hunter’s product manager.
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, Hunter Engineering says.
