Euro Car Parts and Autologic sign distribution deal
Euro Car Parts, the UK distributor of parts for all makes of cars and light commercial vehicles, has agreed an exclusive distribution deal with Autologic, a world leader in automotive diagnosis, to add Autologic Assist to its Workshop Solutions portfolio.
Serving customers in 120 countries, Autologic has identified 850,000 fault codes so far in 2015 alone. Autologic Assist is the UK’s first fully integrated system delivering OEM-like diagnostics with third-party data and industry-standard Pass Through capabilities.
Specialising in premium European vehicles, Autologic offers comprehensive technical data for Audi, BMW, Citroen, Dacia, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, Peugeot, Renault, Seat, Skoda, VW and Volvo.
The AssistPlus hardware consists of a 350 x 239 x 126mm touch sensitive display unit (including handle) with 26-pin D-sub OBDII connectivity and a Pass Through J2534 dongle. It features OEM-level diagnostic applications, a job management system, and the ability to connect to live technical support.
The 50+ dealer-trained master technicians at Autologic’s Oxfordshire HQ provide workshops with a unique competitive advantage. It’s like having a team of leading diagnostic gurus standing next to you. The Assist Support package includes:
- Technical support (symptom assessment, fault code interpretation, log file analysis, and diagnostic and fix pathways)
- Guided Pass Through (setup assistance and programming support)
- Tool support (device usage and manufacturer-specific procedures)
- Regular upgrades (chassis, variant and ECU coverage roadmaps)
Jeremy Fry, chief executive officer (CEO) of Autologic, said: “The Autologic Assist fix and support capabilities enable UK garages to repair more cars, faster and more profitably. Customers report that it saves them at least an hour a day, representing an annual saving of £16,500.
