Schaeffler’s digital marketing team are touring the country to educate garages and mechanics with the latest developments from the OE component and systems manufacturer, with both REPXPERT members and non-members visiting workshops across Northampton.
Garage owners and technicians have been delighted to meet the team, on this occasion also including the local territory managers, who have been tasked with getting the aftermarket up-to-speed with the switch from now obsolete printed bonus coupons to the advanced OneCode labelling system that features on all new LuK, INA and FAG product boxes.
Members now need to use the scanning function in the REPXPERT app to access the invaluable technical library and collect their bonus points, which also includes free entry into the REPXPERT Millionaire prize draw.
As well as helping members who didn’t know of the update and hadn’t downloaded the app, the team also leaves behind a special ‘REPXPERT Millionaire’ tea break kit and other goodies.
Garages that welcomed the Schaeffler team included Alderley Autos, Tony Auto Services, Mr Clutch Autocentres, Duston Auto Centre, Sywell Garage and Automotive Engineering.
“The positive feedback we are getting at every garage we visit makes it all worthwhile, and we are delighted with the engagement we’ve enjoyed at every stop on the trip,” said Kian Patel, Schaeffler’s marketing intern.
“These visits allow us to understand the needs of the garages and their mechanics. We want to know where they need assistance and what they believe works in the industry. This gives us valuable feedback that we can use to help us as a company improve.”
