-Carworkz and IOCL to offer connected solutions for business growth, upgrade independent garages to digitally transform the car servicing industry
Mumbai, September 24, 2018: Carworkz, a fully owned subsidiary of Mahindra First Choice Services (MFC Services), has partnered with Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) to launch ServoXpert, a programme that will help Independent Garages (IGs) to digitize their business. With ServoXpert, the company aims to upgrade independent garages to digitally transform the car servicing industry.
Independent Garages under ServoXpert program will get a range of benefits like Equipment, Branding, Skill Development Training, Lubes supply of Servo brand from Indian Oil, Quality Spares of MFC brand with better margin and a complete workshop management system
The first ServoXpert workshop was inaugurated at Panvel, Navi Mumbai, where customers can get quality service by skilled and trained technicians to get timely delivery of their car.
With evolving technology, the demands of customers for innovative services have also seen a surge, resulting in a huge potential for growth of the Independent garage aftermarket. However, the current workings of Independent garages remain sub-optimal. Though Independent garage caters to 64 percent of the car servicing market (Source: ACMA, 2016), there is a lack of customer experience and automation.
Carworkz aims to transform the Indian car servicing industry digitally through a new flagship product, DearO – The simplest and smartest workshop management system which is designed to seamlessly work for large, medium and small garages alike.
"When an Independent garage comes under the ServoXpert umbrella, it instantly gains the trust of the customer because of the brands associated with the programme. Everything gets an upgrade be it uniforms of the technical staff, their training, the equipment used, or the branded spare parts made available. Most importantly the processes & IT systems that make them much more efficient. We know that with ServoXpert, we will make the customers happy with much-needed transparency and experience they desire. We plan to empower 2000 workshops by 2021 with ServoXpert," Mr. YVS Vijay Kumar, CEO, Mahindra First Choice Services.
"ServoXpert will bring in the much-needed revolutionary change in the functioning of Independent Garages. This initiative will empower the garages to offer credible solutions to customers and build a trust factor. With Independent garages embracing the concept of ServoXpert, these garages can witness tremendous growth in their business." Says Mr. K.L. Murthy, Executive Director (Lubes) of Indian Oil Corporation Limited.
