The National Pronto Association has endorsed BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY, a developer of solutions for the independent automotive repair industry.
Since its founding in 2008, BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY has created more than a dozen software modules that fully integrate with leading shop management systems. The company says these solutions help save repair shop technicians and service advisers time through the use of automation.
Pronto has 95 independent wholesale distributors with 251 regional warehouses throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This network supports 59,000 service centers.
David Wofford, National Pronto Association director of sales and national accounts, said the Pronto network is the perfect complement to BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY’s products, which are part of the Pronto Smart Choice Advantage. The ProntoSmart Choice Advantage also features a 24-month parts and labor warranty, online training and ASE certification reimbursement, as well as roadside assistance for customers, among other items.
“The shops are not unlike most companies where they’re always being asked to do more with less personnel,” Wofford said, adding that the company’s mobile technology enables shops to “communicate with the consumers under the consumers terms – which are email and text messaging.”
Frank Dragoni, director of national sales and corporate partnerships for BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY, said that gaining Pronto’s “stamp of approval” would help increase awareness and, ultimately, reach of BOLT ON’s automotive software solutions.
“We’re excited about this incredible opportunity to partner with such a remarkable leader in the automotive aftermarket industry,” Dragoni said. “Together, we can make Pronto and BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY household names in the auto repair industry.”
