ST. LOUIS — Hunter Engineering Co. has enhanced its HunterNet online business tool that provides real-time information from connected Hunter service equipment.
First introduced in 2002, HunterNet provides real-time data to shops through equipment results, trends and management reports.
Hunter's new autonomous alignment inspection system, Quick Check Drive, is connected with HunterNet, allowing alignment results to be displayed automatically through Flightboard, a digital display of inspection readings that allows a customer to see results first-hand.
Advisors also can review body damage-cam photos of vehicles, potentially protecting shops from questionable damage claims. Managers are able to generate inspection and opportunity reports as well, the company said.
Hunter's Road Force Elite wheel balancer is connected with HunterNet to provide balancing trends, results and details to be reviewed virtually alongside with Hunter's wheel alignment and inspection technology.
"When investing in new equipment, shops should strongly consider smart, connected equipment that provides real-time information to help customers and managers make informed, data-driven decisions," said Alan Hagerty, Hunter product manager.
HunterNet supports thousands of connected Hunter machines, which send tens of thousands of results every day, while driving growth and identifying opportunities for businesses, Hunter said.
