Scotland’s leading independent garage group, D&G Autocare, which has its head office in Kirkcaldy, has claimed a UK industry first with the launch of an innovative vehicle management app.
The new app, which took around two months to plan, develop, test and bring to market, was created in house by D&G Autocare’s online and mobile marketing team, based in Kirkcaldy. It represents a technological investment of £10,000 for D&G.
Those downloading the easy to use app, which covers both android and i phones, can now take advantage of a host of motorist benefits, including receiving timely reminders for their vehicle’s MOT and servicing. They can use the app to book their cars into a D&G garage of their choice and they can check the service and insurance history of any car before deciding whether or not to purchase it.
Pete Wood, D&G’s director of operations, said: “We are excited to launch this new innovation to the Autocare Industry, having worked extremely hard to a number of deadlines to ensure that we are the very first garage group to achieve this in the UK.” The D&G Autocare App is free to download from www.dandgautocare.co.uk, plus through Google play and iTunes. Once a customer has the app they will get automatic reminders a week before their tax, MOT or car insurance is due to expire.
