ELGIN, Ill. (April 10, 2014) — SKF USA has developed a mobile app based on its automotive and heavy duty online parts catalog,
The free SKF Parts Info app download, available for iPhone, iPad and Android, is designed to provide users with the convenience of an online parts search in a mobile app environment, the Elgin-based company said.
Like the firm’s online parts catalog, the SKF app provides users with access to a wide range of part numbers and interchange information for cars and light trucks, and medium and heavy duty trucks. The app’s parts search functionality provides more than 77,000 documents-to-SKU relationships, including information sheets, brochures and tech tips.
Additionally, SKF said the app features a VIN scanner for quick and easy parts lookup, as well as links to the SKF Parts Info YouTube channel and Twitter page for access to product information and technical tips for various applications.
“The SKF Parts Info app is an excellent tool, allowing customers to access the e-catalog from their mobile device just about anywhere,” said Brian Jungmann, SKF’s marketing communications project leader. “With a simple download, technicians can access product information or technical tips as soon as they need it during the repair process.”
The company said it also has enhanced the functionality of SKFpartsinfo.com so that the e-catalog works fully when accessed in a browser on a mobile device.
More information about the app is available on SKF’s website or by calling 800-882-0008.
