Clear and easy to understand: all information in one place
Maintaining a private car is an important but demanding task. Car owners want to have a well maintained car at their doorstep at all times. Until now, they have often had to rely on the services of garages. The Autodoc Club app, which is now available in the Google Play Store, offers customers and prospective customers a wide range of functions to help them organize the maintenance and repair of their own four wheels themselves.
The main component is a digital service booklet containing a detailed repair, service and maintenance overview. This allows you to see directly when and at what mileage the last repairs were carried out. In addition, more detailed information about the replaced part and about the workshop appears in it. A schedule for car maintenance and the replacement of parts based on the mileage and/or date helps the car owner not to miss any important appointments. It also includes recommendations on replacement intervals as well as automatic notifications for upcoming repairs, maintenance intervals, dates and deadlines: a visit to the garage, a car wash or an insurance renewal. In this way you are kept well informed and always up to date.
In addition, the fuel calculator provides users with a tool to monitor fuel consumption and fuel efficiency. In addition to more than 2,500 video and PDF tutorials for repairing the car yourself, the app includes life hacks and tips for car care and maintenance. Many problems can thus be solved independently.
The aim is to make life as easy as possible for the vehicle owner: forwarding to the Autodoc Shop is integrated into the Autodoc Club app and ensures a seamless user experience. This allows the user to switch from the Autodoc Club app directly to the Autodoc Shop and order spare parts or consumables. The app supports them with a list of required spare parts, which is created especially for the respective car. Due to the large selection of high quality spare parts available in the Autodoc world, users can compare prices and choose the right part.
“We built up our own IT expertise right from the start. With this knowledge we have now created a modern tool in the Autodoc Club app. It enables every driver to store and manage important information about their vehicle easily and efficiently. For us, this is a further important component in providing customers with comprehensive digital advice. At the same time, the Autodoc platform remains well scalable to offer high-quality car parts that everyone can afford”, explains Autodoc Managing Director, Alexej Erdle.
